The Decadent may no longer be on the tip of the tongue when we need cool places to dine out (here at Time Out it’s common practice), but when we're going to rummage through the hippocampus to get a more concrete answer, there it is. A restaurant where you still pay little and eat well; to be able to go on weekend nights when you want to see beautiful people; to be presented with an idyllic patio-terrace with tables to gather several friends around. The menu changes seasonally, but the steak never disappears.

Perfect for: making a two in one, with dinner and drinks, or vice versa, without leaving the site.
Must try: Portugal on a plate, a loose rice with fish and shrimp.

Stunning decor and great vibe. The bar to the restaurant boast a cosy yet modern environment, with both the indoor and outdoor seating available (with retractable roof and heating lamps available in winter).  The service and waitstaff were extremely friendly and accommodating, especially when we raised concerns about some of the dishes. The meat was overcooked and unfortunately the Ceviche was very bland. The duck on the other hand was beautifully tender and tasty. It is not the right place if you are on a budget, but great environment for a couple of drinks. Again hat off to the service, the staff was excellent.

O nome, na minha opinião, é original, mas pouco lisongeiro. Já visitei este restaurante uma vez, só não repito porque o meu orçamento mensal normalmente só dá para uma tasca por mês. Mas aqui também pode sempre beber um copo antes de se atirar à noite das ruas do Bairro Alto.
