It celebrates 40 years of age this year and that is more than enough reason to go there and celebrate with the owners, Viviane Durieu and António Moita, the fact that they have held on for so long with such a special restaurant. Special because it combines several cuisines - from the partridge the Convento das Bernardas way to the ray au beurre noir, or from the lamejinhas to the venison medallions with truffles, there is a bit of everything -; special because a restaurant in a former convent, with tables in the cloister is something that seems straight out of a movie; and special because there is always someone famous sitting at the table.
Perfect for: a top dinner at a place where there aren’t many restaurants of this kind.
Must try: the flounder meuniere.
