When you enter the restaurant of the Pousada do Crato, the most impressive thing are the windows overlooking the gardens and pool. When you have the menu and go through the room with your eyes, the immense stone wall of the monastery, built with wood into the new wing, won't cease to amaze you. The grandeur of the space foretells what you will savour next.
There are two bars: an indoor one, in the old monk cafeteria, with a piano where you can play and help make the atmosphere even more magical. Below the cafeteria is the tank that provided water to the monastery in every seasons. In the summer, the pool bar is perfect with its range of light meals and snacks you don't have to interrupt your peace of mind for nothing.
