Best for Gourmets - Expert review of Eleven

The first restaurant in Lisbon to earn a Michelin star is a triumph of fine dining.

Named after the 11 friends who got together to have a crack at bringing Michelin recognition to Lisbon, Eleven unifies its various influences to make one of the most impressive fine-dining experiences in town.

Food and drink: 

German-born, Joachim Koerper, is the head chef and calls his food ‘seasonal market cuisine’. Expect delightful plates of crayfish carpaccio with pineapple and sweet pepper, and shrimp crunch over coconut risotto.

Recommended dishes: 

I particularly like the Madras curry with lemongrass.

Ambience: 

Everything is minimalist and formal, which either seems out of place in rough-and-ready Lisbon or is a refreshing change, I can't decide.

Service: 

The staff are polite, friendly and eager to please.

Location: 

High on a hill above Parque Eduardo VII and next to the lovely Amalia Rodruiges gardens, the restaurant has two floors of stunning floor-to-ceiling views over the Rio Tejo.

Price advice: 

Expensive for Lisbon but not bad by international standards, considering the quality. Our bill came to around 75 euros each.

Tables to book: 

Try and get a window table to get the best out of the amazing view.
