Expert review of Largo

One of Lisbon’s newest and coolest restaurants, set in a wonderfully converted old cloisters.

Big on substance and style, this new restaurant is the creation of Lisbon's most celebrated chef, Miguel Castro e Silva of Porto’s Bull & Bear (widely considered the country’s best restaurant) and Miguel Câncio Martins of Paris’s Buddha Bar fame. The results are a spot-on mix of super-cool design, ambiance and delicious modern cuisine.

Food and drink: 

Maintaining its Portuguese roots, the local-inspired menu is given a modern look with some inspired twists. Personal highlights include the roasted Iberian pork and polenta, and the fresh cod marinated in port and soy sauce – ‘a tribute to black cod’ which might be the best plate of fish in town.

Ambience: 

It's as achingly cool here as Lisbon can muster. An original open-brick dome ceiling looms over the diners, while a 30-metre fish-tank, containing a smack of dancing jellyfish, dramatically makes up the eye-level interiors. Appropriately, diners are smart, young and hip.

Service: 

The restaurant tries hard in every way and this includes the waiting staff.

Location: 

Up one of Chiado's cobbled streets, it's easily noticed.

Price advice: 

If you get out for under 70 euros pp, you've done well, but then this isn't the kind of place you should scrimp in.
