Best for Gourmets - Expert review of Eleven
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.
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.
I particularly like the Madras curry with lemongrass.
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.
The staff are polite, friendly and eager to please.
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.
Expensive for Lisbon but not bad by international standards, considering the quality. Our bill came to around 75 euros each.
Try and get a window table to get the best out of the amazing view.
