This salty, old restaurant and café down by the Velas pier has a long front bar where the local fishermen saddle up. At its center is a two-group La Spaziale. In the back is more of a dining area where you can sit at a table in an oddly lit room and eat fish while watching the latest Portuguese telenovelas. They pull shots rather high and full with a heat spot on an otherwise thin, lighter crema. The cup is exceptionally thin-bodied for Portugal with a flavor of mild pepper. Served in Torrié-logo cups. ?0.60.
