4.5

A Lisbon restaurant by beautiful people for beautiful people.

Owned by a trio of model agency bigwigs, this is the place to namedrop right now. But if you look beyond the crowd of long legs and rigid jawlines, you'll find there's also some pretty good food to be had here as well.

Food and drink

The menu is a seasonal and modern mix of Mediterranean, Italian and Portuguese fare with a mild emphasis on seafood.

Recommended dishes

On my only visit I had the octopus risotto, which was outstanding. The soft octopus blended well with the thick and creamy rice. I also noticed more then a few size-zero models being tempted by the cheesecake.

Ambience

Wall-to-wall models and fashion folk with just a waft of smug in the air, which may or may not, be bearable.

Service

The wannabe models and actors that make up the staff are probably more beautiful than efficient, which is fine by me when they look that good.

Location

Down an obscure street in Santos, this place is either awkwardly out-of-the-way or secluded and secret, depending on how you look at it.

Price advice

Lunch deals are pretty good with mains going for around the 10-15 euros mark. In the evening prices get closer to 20 euros.
