Kailua: Celebrate the beach in Fonte da Telha

At the peak of summer, when the weather finally announce high temperatures, the beach is always one of the best places to be. The 30 minutes from Lisbon, Fonte da Telha is always a good suggestion to enjoy a day of sun and sea. Here, it is mandatory to make a stop at the restaurant Kailua. The name originates in a region of Hawaii, and is faithful to the environment that one lives in this space. The palm trees, the terrace in the sand, the friendly service and the relaxed atmosphere helps to compose the scenario.

In wood, the restaurant is decorated in the interior, with exotic elements, such as plants, paintings, and colorful surfboards. The fabrics and the white sofas make this space even more tropical. Already abroad, you have the option of installing on the covered terrace, with wooden floor and piped-in music, or in the terrace sand in the shade of the straw hats. One or the other, the advice is to taste one of the refreshing drinks from the menu, as the sparkling sangria (€15), the cocktail Kailua (€10) with tequila, licor beirão, passion fruit and iced mango, or, if you prefer a drink without alcohol, opt for smoothies ice-cream (€5).

On the menu, there are several options. You can opt for snacks, such as news stories , Ceviche of salmon (€16) and octopus Carpaccio (€10) or the usual wild Shrimp in garlic (€15). In fish, there are suggestions how to Poke salmon (€15), and Cod from Iceland (€15) and in meat, the council are Steak Kailua (€21), with sauce of mango, mustard, and honey, and Steak grilled (€16). There’s a great list of salads, if you prefer a lighter meal, the chicken Salad (€10) or the Salad of the sea (€13). If you are vegan there are several options on the menu, the tip is the Rice Baht (€13) or the Ceviche Tropical (€9).

If you are already on the beach, drag the day till the sunset and escape the traffic. Take the opportunity to prove the toast of the Kailua: is salmon (€12), vegetarian (€6,50) and chicken (€6,90), among others. The suggestion is that you ask for a dose of sweet-Potato fries (€4) to monitor and, if appropriate, share.

At Thursdays there is a special menu (€9,90) dinner, buffet breakfast. There are several crackers, bruschetta, a hot dish, soup, various salads, simple and compound, and much more. The drink is included and you can opt for wine, water and natural fruit juices.
