Centro de Portugal information
This hard-to-find expat haven off Sharia Kafr Abdou has a garden bar on a leafy patio, darts and pool, plus a tiny disco complete with mirrored ball. Best of all, the beverages are very cold. Drinks are purchased via an unusual card system: E£75 gets you enough credits for a choice of five beers, three glasses of wine, two cocktails or 10 soft drinks.
The food menu (mains E£35 to E£70) offers Western standards, and there’s a small playground for kids (who get free admission). It’s a great place to unwind and meet local expats while sucking down an icy gin and tonic.
