For the longest time the traditional cuisine in Portugal used to live in the shadow of more popular and well-known European cuisines such as Spanish, French and Italian, but gone are the days, when Portugal was not well-loved for its gastronomy. Today all the fresh and delicious production of seafood, meat, vegetables and fruits is used for preparing creative dishes and fusion receipts that offer the perfect balance between traditional Portuguese food and international influence. Despite the fact that many international cuisines are well-presented in the country, we highly recommend you trying some unique Portuguese places you can explore through our page. Whether it will be fancy dining, family-inspired cosy restaurant or street food vendors, Portugal is surely offering a lot for you to explore and enjoy.

Situated in the middle of downtown Lisbon, it has been the scene of important social, political and economic events in the city. In 1964, it was remodelled and expanded by the architect Mauricio de Vasconcelos, now receiving the status of Luxury Restaurant that remains to this day. This architect was also responsible for the decoration, as well as the exclusive design of the lamps, tables with generous dimensions and comfortable chairs made of wood and Portuguese leather, engraved with the logo of the restaurant. Details of Portuguese art, mixed with traditional details such as antiques, porcelain pieces from Companhia das Índias, exotic wood, period furniture or a Portuguese granite fireplace make up the interior of the space.
