4.5

Fine dining in grand and historic surrounds.

I only dine here as a rare treat. This is the place to come for sophisticated high-end dining. You won't look out of place in a tuxedo or ball gown, while rubbing shoulders with the highest of Lisbon and Europe's high society.

Food and drink

This place brings traditionally rough-and-ready fare of Portugal and gives it a strong twist of finesse. The seafood is top drawer and the wine list is as long as it is pricey.

Recommended dishes

The only time I visited I had the menu degustation, of which the highlights were the lobster couscous and the duck magret.

Ambience

It's very formal here, to the point that it feels rude to talk above the volume of whispering.

Service

Excellent the waiters are always on-hand at the slightest flinch of a request.

Location

Obviously in the Hotel Ritz, the restaurant couldn't be in a grander location. There are also lovely views overlooking the Eduardo VII Park.

Price advice

Including wine our bill totaled around 70 euros pp.
