Rua da Cintura do Porto de Lisboa, Armazém A
Cais do Sodré
Ibo Café and the Fiori ice cream parlour are part of the expansion strategy of the Ibo group, which owns the homonymous restaurant and seafood restaurant and is also one of the outstanding names of the new Cais do Sodré area.
With a terrace and stunning views of the Tagus River, this is not a traditional café. It has a lighter menu than its "sibling restaurants," but it also offers meals. Or rather, snacks, all created by chef João Pedro Pedrosa, such as puntillitas (€ 9.00), grilled cuttlefish with green chili sauce (€ 8.50) or anchovies with garlic, coriander and olive oil (€ 9.00). Other menu options in this location include salads (between € 7.50 and € 9.50), burgers (between € 6.50 and € 7.50), savouries (samosas - € 2,00, pastry pies with minced meat - € 2.00, crab croquettes - € 2.00), quiches (€ 3.50 a slice), grilled sandwiches (between € 2.20 and € 4.50), carob and whole pizzas (€ 5.80) and, keeping the Mozambique connection, "Lili da Polana" (€ 9.00) - a well-known steak sandwich from Maputo.
As for Fiori, it is a traditional ice cream parlor nestled in an old 19th century wooden house facing the Cais do Sodré square. It offers about 20 different flavors, from the original lemon with basil to more tropical varieties such as papaya, mango, and cashew nut, or more traditional options such as strawberry, chocolate or milk cream, all made by hand.
