Henrique Sá Pessoa is one of Portugal's most dynamic chefs. Media savvy and with plenty of marketing nous, he knows how to turn heads and raise eyebrows. He also knows how to cook! Michelin thinks so, and has awarded Alma a coveted star for his efforts. Sá Pessoa regales his guests with clever interpretations of Portuguese gastronomy made a touch more exotic with Asian flourishes based on his travels to this exotic part of the world. Options include two highly regarded tasting menus – Costa a Costa, inspired by the ocean, and Alma, which features a collection of the chef's own favourites. The wine cellar is inspiring and includes wines from across Portugal including some lesser known labels which will surprise even the seasoned connoisseur.
- Best Restaurants: "For a truly international flavour, opt for the Caminhos, a three-course menu that reflect's Sá Pessoa's world travels."
- Fine Dining: "If you're interested in seeing how the food is prepared, ask for a table near the kitchen balcony. The chef and kitchen staff work wonders right in front of your eyes."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: One of Lisbon's exclusive Michelin-starred restaurants, Alma is quite simply a delightful journey through international flavours.
- Best for Fine Dining Because: Alma combines all the elements for a fine dining night out: Michelin cuisine, a beautiful venue, and impeccable service.
