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.
