Located only a few steps from Sé, Lisbon’s cathedral, there is Prado. Prado occupies a former cannery, where there are also Roman ruins, where the wine cellar is placed.

Prado means “meadow” in Portuguese and the design of the restaurant reflects its name, with sage green walls, natural wood, and plenty of plants hanging from the ceiling.

The two storeys high room and windows serve farm-to-table food. On the menu, there are only seasonal and fresh local ingredients. The dishes are a twist of Portuguese food with international influences. The chef who leads the kitchen is a Portuguese who worked at “Taberna do Mercado”, a Portuguese restaurant in London by a Michelin star chef Nuno Mendes).

The chef created a wonderful menu, from which one can choose something from the sea or from the land: as the Iberico pork tenderloin, quinces & chocolate peppers. To go with the food, the wine list comprises only organic, biodynamic, and natural wines.

Our tip: is don’t skip a mouthwateringly delicious couvert: a Barbela wheat bread (from Gleba), fresh goats butter, smoked salt & sea lettuce, whipped Iberico pork fat, garlic & bay leaf; Nor skip a dessert such as Sweet potato, smoked milk ice cream & honey.
