“Hifen is a wonderful restaurant serving Portuguese Petiscos(which are small plates of sharing food rather like Tapas). Overlooking the Bay of Cascais, the crowd is vibrant and the funky bar is open until late. It does get very busy so try to book. Or you could all go and wait for a seat by the bar.”
