Two stars restaurants

Alma, by Henrique Sá Pessoa

“ALMA is a fine dinning restaurant, with signature cuisine served informally in a sophisticated ambience. It aims to be an innovative restaurant, not only regarding to food proposals, but also to simplify and break down some basic rules. For Henrique Sá Pessoa there is only the good cuisine and the bad cuisine. He defines his as a tasteful cuisine: refined taste, perfect technique and excellent product. The basis of his culinary philosophy is in his influences and references: travels around the world, the passion for Asia, the knowledge of traditional Portuguese cuisine, the life in Lisbon.”

The menu:

COSTA A COSTA (140€): “A tribute to Portugal’s fish and seafood. Five dishes that take us on a journey along our coastline and bring seawater and sustainable catches to the table.”

ALMA (140€): “Inspired by the creations for which the chef is best known, the five dishes on this tasting menu offer fresh interpretations of some of Portugal’s more traditional flavours.”

Because we are never contented with what exists, because we like to risk and reinvent, with knowledge and enthusiasm. We took another look at some of our most emblematic dishes and decided to reinvent them, take a Step further, explore the unknown starting-off from what we know. We have introduced innovation into tradition: new flavours, textures, ideas and sensations.”
