  • Nice cafe with a lovely view, surely worth the 20-30 minutes drive up. Cafe had an upgrade in 2021. I usually come here on weekend days after walks around Dare (the cafe can also help arrange a guide i.e. to Tuda Tiris waterfall) Cafe has good coffee and fresh juice as well as sandwiches. Dare is also a great place to buy plants along the road
  • What a spectacular place to have dinner, the drive from Dili was an adventure in its self, once you get there the food is delicious, we had the house special pizza, I would say the best in Timor-Leste so far, and the view is the best view of Dili by far and the staff were fantastic, they also knew a little English, is a must if you are in Dili.
