Please find below a sample menu to give you an idea of what is being served at Cozinha da Clara. Pedro, our Executive chef, is always adjusting the menu due to seasonal availability and is often trying new dishes. The philosophy of Cozinha da Clara is to serve local Portuguese cuisine at its best – simplicity is the key. Starters and deserts are priced between €6 to €10 whilst main courses are mainly between €20 and €25.
