Henrique Sá Pessoa was the great winner of the 2019 edition of the Michelin Guide: he received the second star for his Alma restaurant (the first one was at the end of 2016). In this Chiado restaurant, the chef is increasingly worried about the Portuguese product and its appreciation in the dish. There are two tasting menus (one at €110 and another at €120): Alma, where you will find your classics, and Coasta a Costa, which takes you on a trip along the national coast and brings to the table sea water and sustainable species.
The first Michelin Guide gala to be held in Portugal dictated just two more stars for Lisbon restaurants in the 2018-2019 season. In total there are now eight restaurants in the great Lisbon area that can proudly boast this star from the most important gastronomic guide in the world. You can find them from downtown Cascais to a quick trip to Sintra, or just by walking up and down Chiado, now considered the center of high gastronomy in Lisbon. All of them are, of course, on our meticulously compiled list of the best restaurants in Lisbon, so be sure to check it out if you’re looking to find some more affordable, yet still delicious options in the city. If you want to try the best of the city, all under one roof, then the Time Out Market is the place to visit.
