O Marafado

The Bees Knees €€€+

At Restaurant - Bar“O Marafado” you can enjoy a good tapas-based meal, or simply enjoy a drink, while taking in the spectacular surrounding scenery, with the best of both worlds: look straight ahead for sea views and the view of the Lagos Marina, and to the left, views of the famous Monchique Mountains and beautiful countryside.

“O Marafado” is located only a couple of minutes’ drive from Lagos town centre; a peaceful location where you can escape the hustle and bustle of city life.

The Story behind O Marafado

Once upon a time, farmers used to grow their barley on a hill, known as Falfeira, on the outskirts of Lagos. On that hill was a little cottage and next to it a barn. At the very top there was a large stone threshing-floor, where the grain used to be separated from the chaff – this was called an “eira”. In the 70’s the opportunity arose to buy this lovely plot, with the aim of building a restaurant with panoramic views. Eventually, the restaurant was built; an outdoor grilling area, a pool and an esplanade all followed, still maintaining the threshing-floor as well as other rustic features.

In 1979, the inauguration of Restaurante “O Marafado” took place. After 3 decades of functioning as a typical restaurant, the decision was made to re-open as a Tapas Bar. An innovative concept, with a view to exploiting a different type of gastronomy, and alter the standard restaurant style, to a being more relaxed and cosy. So, after some upgrades and renovations were made, “O Marafado” re-opened in 2009 as a Tapas Bar.

The idea of re-opening as a Tapas Bar came from the owner, who after having spent 7 years in Glasgow, Scotland, and having worked in a Tapas Restaurant himself, thought it would be a different and interesting approach to Portuguese cuisine.
