Bar/Restaurant

During your stay at Orango Parque Hotel you can watch the sun go down by the sea under the beach shelters, chill in our bar area or enjoy a refreshing drink.

Clients and tourists can enjoy a friendly ambience in the open air bar. It offers a wide range of national and imported drinks (wines, whiskies, gins…), local beer and caipirinhas.

The waiters will be delighted to provide quality customer service in a friendly and pleasant manner.

The restaurant / dining area is located in the central bungalow. The hotel offers its guests full board. The hotel’s philosophy and the unique location mean the chef and his team prepare succulent menus every day with fresh fish and other products caught straight from the sea, accompanied by seasonal fruit. The menu includes typical products of the Bijagó Islands, such as combe, a type of local cockles, fish and Bijagó rice.

Fresh Fish

The fresh fish can be served grilled, baked, en papillote, marinated or as fish carpaccio or delicious fish skewers, all served with “tarrafe”, a delicious prawn and cockle sauce. You can also try the delicious mangrove oysters.

Bijagó cuisine

Palm oil is often used in Bijagó cuisine; however, given the particular flavour of this oil it is not used in the Orango Parque Hotel, as it is generally not a flavour enjoyed by tourists.

Suggestions

We suggest that our most daring guests should try the Bijagó cuisine as a way of experiencing local cultures and traditions. An experience for the most exotic palates.
