Considered by many to be the best drinking option in Little Portugal, the Star Bar is certainly the finest spot at which to watch European football, beamed in on Portuguese TV.
Cold Super Bocks, custard tarts and portions of stew and sundry pork dishes served in half or full measures add to the Iberian atmosphere. You can stand at the bar, but it’s more of a sit-down-and-be-served kind of place, with the uniformed waiters gradually getting used to a pace of life a few notches faster than Portugal’s. You may have to catch someone’s attention if you’ve bagged a terrace seat. Otherwise, Estrela is relaxed and informal, even on big-match nights.
