We had a very difficult time categorizing this post. The Cella Bar, in the municipality of Madelena on the island of Pico in the Azores, is a tapas restaurant and bar. Yet, it is also a work of architectural art and design, as well as a restful retreat in which to enjoy stunning views of the coast and sea. A great structure, beautiful ambiance and delicious food by day or by night.

Cella Bar has several zones and ambiances: a large stone patio; a rooftop terrace; a stone wall dining room; and the undulating wood slat bar. It’s a great place for lunchtime tea, afternoon coffee, sunset wine and late night gin and tonics. The tapas menu includes ceviche, cheese plate, prosciutto and brie toast, octopus salad, grilled squid salad and more. The chocolate mousse is popular for dessert. Live music is scheduled in the bar on weekends.
