Cais da Praia is located at Foz do Arelho beach. The ambiance is fine and you can see the óbidos lagoon while you are eating. When I went there, they have jazz music as ambience sound. It's pretty relaxing! The restaurant has a nice design and it isn't an expensive one.

Went here on Sunday 10th December for a spot of lunch. Service was disgusting, no side plates offered for bread to be on , not enough butter , one portion of butter for four people, asked for more which arrived along with the main courses. Hamburger and chips were cold even after being sent back to be heated, a single... More

Good afternoon, It is with great displeasure that they did not enjoy an excellent meal. Having lunch on a terrace on a cold winter's day, you can have these things, because the food on the street cools quickly these days, not because it's just a few potatoes. In attendance we apologize, because in fact he was a little experienced person... More

We have recently returned home from a motorhome tour of Portugal, Spain and France. Myself and my wife were accompanied by a close friend and Foz Do Arelho had been recommended to us as a great place to stay. We were not disappointed, it is a great place to visit and stay. On our last evening we decided to dine... More

This bar/restaurant is right on the beach at a beautiful location with a shaded terrace perfect for a leisurely or romantic lunch. The menu is informal in style with some good salads and seafood. We thoroughly recommend Cais da Praia.

Good: the position, the view, the octopus Bad: the service (they forgot our order and they brought cold clams and soup), when we asked to heat them up the clams were ok but the soup was still awful

I could have given their feedback in the restaurant that I'm sure we'd settle for the best. Our excuses More

Cais da Praia has a decent menu, but the best thing about it is the location, of all the restaurants at the beach, it is the only one that is actually ON the beach and doesn't have a view of the car park! If you have children and you want to eat outside (best place!), you can let them play... More

This restaurant was great. Sits on the beachfront overlooking the Óbidos Lagoon and the ocean. Went there for dinner at the end of the day, early evening. Service was prompt and efficient. The food was delicious. I ate a fantastic cod fish meal. Split it with my wife, actually, as it was big enough for both. The kid had a... More
