Designed around a Mediterranean brasserie concept, the in-house restaurant at Inspira Santa Marta Hotel exudes a pleasantly understated cosmopolitan ambiance. The fine dining venue's cultured organic look is deliberate and the kitchen follows the hotel's guiding principals of environmental sustainability: for the most part, ingredients have been sourced locally, and preferably through fair trade outlets. The menu celebrates the textures and flavours of southern Europe, and surprises abound. Order the roasted triggerfish with herbs, olives, cherry tomato and olive oil bathed in sweet garlic sauce for a gastronomic revelation. Equally appealing is the pistachio encrusted lamb chops with whole grain mustard sauce. By all means investigate the wine list but make sure you also order the mineral water. The proceeds of every bottle sold goes towards building and maintaining fresh water pumps in rural African villages - a wholly commendable initiative.
- Best Value, Avenida Liberdade/Marques de Pombal/Estefânia's Best Restaurants: "Be sure to order a bottle of mineral water. All proceeds go towards the construction of fresh water pumps in African villages."
- Recommended as Best Value Because: Considering the quality of the menu and the care with which food is prepared and served, this is outstanding value for money.
- Best for Avenida Liberdade/Marques de Pombal/Estefânia's Best Restaurants Because: The award-winning Inspira Santa Martal is Lisbon's first Green Globe hotel property, and the eco credentials extend to the restaurant.
