The Tavern is a merry making space par excellence, inspired by the movement "Overdue of Life." With "jantantes" as distinguished as Oliveira Martins, Guerra Junqueiro, Ramalho Ortigão and of course, Eça de Queiroz. Very close to the King D. Carlos, who loved Cascais and chosed the fortress as a resting space, they met here several times. The protagonists of this movement have disappeared, but the jantante and literary spirit are alive and well in this Taberna.

Furthermore, the Taberna da Praça lives of the relationship between books, wine and snacks, coming out as a true "literary tavern." With more than 35 references served in glasses, with excellent notes, here you can taste various wines during your meal. Literary menus are also quite tempting and you can even read what the poet Eça de Queirós thought of his dish of little broad beans. The tastings and the dishes to share are kings in this space where the conversation wants to be let loose and topics flow free, in an ode to the Portuguese socializing spirit. After all, everyone knows if there is place where a Portuguese feels good, it is at the table. And if the food is the issue, then the recipe for a perfect evening is prepared and served.
