João Rodrigues is among Lisbon's most creative minds. He is a master at extracting maximum flavour from every ingredient, whether fish and shellfish (brought in from the Algarve and Peniche fish markets) or several bio legumes grown at the Quinta do Poial. The restaurant has a hotel-kitchen style, with plenty of seafood and Eastern touches, but the chef can't resist showy experiments with smoke, dust sprinkles and the like. As it must be in a fine dining spot, the appetizers and the amuse bouches are part of the experience and the artistry does not disappoint.
Time Out tips:
– It has one Michelin star, but it should have gotten a second in 2017.
– The Terra menu is 100% vegetarian and awesome.
– Menus cost €80 (three courses), €95 (four) and €135 (six).
