Café
“Best pizza in and around Ericeira! This is a local favourite and not too many tourists knows about this jewel with stunning sunset views as it is a bit outside the city. However the drive here is well worth it Make sure to test their Presunto, Vegeterian and 4 cheeses pizzas.”

Point of Interest
“Matadouro is located just north of Praia do Norte (and Ericeira) in front of the skate park. It consists of multiple peaks. The main break is a right hander on the north side of the bay. More to the south, you are also able to find some lefts.”
