Don't trust a place that goes by “by”. It usually means the chef created the menu, shared his ideas, taught some tricks and then went “bye bye”. That's is not true about Less, a restaurant at the Embaixada; chef Castro e Silva gave it his name and a menu with some of his oldest recipes. The menu is not huge but it is big enough to ensure you will be well fed, with dishes such as marinated sea bass with fresh herbs, Alentejo pork gyosa or lemon and trout eggs risotto.
Time Out tips:
– Despite being a fan of Portuguese cuisine, the chef likes to add international touches from all over the world.
– The venue is owned by Gin Lovers, so you know what drinks to order.
– Good for summer lunches (it's nice and cool).
