In the Boavista zone, this restaurant is tasteful and comfortable, offering a Portuguese cuisine that has been updated for modern tastes. It is both a cafe, with Internet access, and a formal restaurant. The chefs always prepare a fresh soup of the day, or else you can pick from such starters as bruschetta with melted goat cheese, perhaps a salad of four different types of lettuce with cheese from the Azores, whipped together with a mustard and honey sauce dressing. For the vegetarian, courses are offered such as ratatouille with basmati rice served with grilled polenta. Among the best fish dishes are grilled tuna steak in a sage sauce or grilled codfish filet on a bed of fresh spinach. The chefs are equally skilled at turning out meat dishes, including grilled lamb steak with a Thai sauce or rump steak served with black beans.
