A very nice and cosy bar with lovely staff. This Boat Bar is on land close to the Porto it has chill music and atmosphere. We couldn´t resist this little unique, retro bar and had to come back for even more cocktails and snacks.

We came here after dinner for a good night cocktail and were welcomed very warmly by the owners. Cocktails are delicious and you get free snacks coming with the drinks. And you have the chance to listen to some rock music!

They also do cocktails. They speak English, Spanish, French, Italian and of course Portuguese. It is friendly, right next to the sea (next to the small boat harbour) Prices are fair.
