This is a nice cafe bar with great views of the lagoon. It is run by a Frenchman (Louis) and his Portuguese wife (Teresa). The drink is reasonably priced and the food menu offers a really nice selection of snacks all through the day. Regularly...More

I have taken two groups from a local art school to the Cantaloupe Cafe to listen to jazz on Sunday evenings. The setting, by the water, is great and the music superb. Different groups each week. There is a five euro cover charge per person...More

Live jazz most nights whilst sipping a large drink with views out to sea, it does get busy so get there early if you enjoy listening to music.

Every Saturday we go to Olhao market, and Cantaloupe cafe is our breakfast stop. Excellent friendly service, great selection on the menu. A place to sit and watch the world go by. A great place. Highly recommend.

Brilliant seating area outside with comfy seats instead of plastic ones which you get stuck to because it's so hot 🙈 The waitor came to us straight away. We ordered two drinks and two toasted sandwiches which were really big and tasty.

If you love wine and music and want to get away from the pool in the afternoons, this is the place to come. I spent every mid-afternoon here when it was too hot at the pool. Lovely wine, a view of the harbour, the people...More
