This is a cafe located on the beach just out of Matasinhos, a fair way out of Porto. It is one of about seven "beach cafes" that serve lunches, snacks and juices to passers by ... no real ambiance, but nice enough folks, a good sandwich and pleasant place to chill out for a little while.

Go on a sunny day and not only will you enjoy a great and relaxing view over the Atlantic Ocean, you will also eat amazing healthy natural food that will not make you feel guilty at all. Indulge. Great for breakfast, lunch, dessert!

This place has an amazing view and very good looking and amazing taste desserts. I have tried a few of their pies and the bowl with Açai + yougurt+Granola+banana+strawberry+honey and they were great! Good place to go with your friends but it's not too cheap.

I recently had a ham&cheese toast at Picaba that needs a lot of improvement. The bread was white and pretty low quality and wasn't that toasted which meant that the cheese was not melted enough. Also the cheese was grated and not in enough quantity but on the other side there was 2 huge slices of ham like if I... More

Picaba is blessed with a great view and good food. However, it's service is ridiculous. I went with a friend for an açaí breakfast bowl and fresh fruit juice and proceeded to wait around 45min for the said bowls to appear at our tables (yes, because our fruit juices were completely forgotten!), after we had gently reminded the flustered waiter...

If you're looking for a spot where you can indulge yourself in tasty fusion cuisine, this the spot - healthy snacks, lavishily cooked meals, friendly staff and the terrace is the place to be to check the line-up both in the water and onshore. Also, treat yourself with a powerfull post-surf session bowl of açai (multivitamin fruit, from the Amazon)... More

Lovely view of the beach with healthy food. Great fresh fruit juices. You must try the desserts. Are really wonderful. good value for money .And they don't serve you to much food.

The owners of this business have not trained any of their staff properly. The waiting staff and kitchen staff don't know what they are doing as individuals and don't work as a team. It's the owners fault, not the staff. I went there with 4 people, the waitress forgot my meal. I had to follow it up twice. It took... More
