Stopped here for lunch and had a very good meal. The meal was very fresh and well presented. Service was good as well. The place filled up just after we got there. It seems to attract a young more urban crowd.

Café Maratona, estabelecimento fundado em 1966, mais de quatro décadas de histórias e experiência.

Com o novo projecto idealizado em 2008 para o espaço, pretende-se recriar o ambiente vivo e informal do tradicional café, não só como espaço social, mas também enquanto espaço de reflexão e intervenção, mas agora num espaço actual e confortável, com um toque de glamour e sofisticação, virado para um público cada vez mais urbano e cosmopolita.

Mais do que um café, pretende-se um espaço gerador de tendências, que responda às necessidades de um público cada vez mais exigente e conhecedor, e que simultaneamente ajude a (re)educar e fidelizar o público mais tradicional.
