The first restaurant to bring a Michelin star to the city centre back in 2006, with the elegant Mediterranean cuisine of Joachim Koerper, Eleven briefly lost, then won back, that honour but now seems to have a firm grip. In what is essentially a large concrete box, whose floor-to-ceiling windows afford panoramic views, Lisbon's elite coo over elaborate dishes produced using the freshest seafood, vegetable and herbs, and prime meats. Desserts, such as coconut crême brûlée or passionfruit soufflé, are divine. The minimalist decor - wood, iron and stone - makes it feel like a place that's geared towards a business crowd, and the lunchtime 'express menu' (€31.50 for three courses) fits with that. But there are various tasting menus (from €90) to be enjoyed at leisure.
