This large dockside space, dotted with designer furniture, features a main restaurant, a large terrace on the river, and an excellent sushi bar upstairs. Its kitchen is now run by one of Portugal's most admired chefs, Alexandre Silva. The menu might offer the likes of poached John Dory with a lentil and fennel stew or Alentejo presas (pork shoulder) with a dried fig stuffing. There are always vegetarian options and lovely light desserts. There's also a great Sunday brunch outside high summer.
