Begin Your Day with Brunch
Start your day right with our delicious brunch menu, served between 10 am and 2:30 pm. We provide a variety of tasty options, from toasties to 'pastel de natas', full Portuguese breakfasts, and sharing brunches like steak with eggs. The delightful Portuguese flavours and a cosy atmosphere make our brunch perfect for spending a relaxed weekend morning or catching up with friends.
Lunch: Taste the Magic of Bifanas
For lunch, step into the wonderful world of bifanas – traditional Portuguese sandwiches. The bifana is a staple of Portuguese cuisine and can be found in cafes and bars across the country. Made with marinated pork cooked in a seasoned broth with garlic and spices, the bifana is then served on a soft roll, creating a sumptuous lunch option that's both portable and flavoursome.

Tapas is served from 2:30 pm, with the last sitting at 8:15 pm. Inspired by our foodie adventures around the world, Jorge's Tasca offers tapas and petiscos - the Portuguese version of tapas - with mouth-watering dishes made from seafood, abundant in Portugal's coastal regions. The shared nature of tapas, combined with a wide range of options including meat, vegetable, fish, and seafood dishes, creates a fun and interactive dining experience for friends and family.
