A place to discover the best Portuguese ingredients cooked in a sophisticated, yet simple, way and full of flavour.The restaurant of the beautiful Bairro Alto Hotel has one of the best views over the rooftops of downtown Lisbon. The project started with Nuno Mendes who came from London to create all the food concepts in the hotel (check also the more recent 18.68 Cocktail Bar). Now that Nuno left, talented chef Bruno Rocha continues the work they started together. Try the amazing barnacles toast to start and, if in winter, don't miss the mushrooms with cured egg before discovering the delicate texture of the sea bass, at its very best also in winter, when the fat of the fish melts in your mouth. For dessert, the soft and not very sweet farófias are a must. Also, go for the wine pairing and you will learn a lot about less well known Portuguese wines from small, independent producers, many of them organic or biodynamic.
