This Lisbon fine dining venue glows under two Michelin stars thanks to its chef, Henrique Sá Pessoa, one of Portugal's most dynamic kitchen wizards. Alma, which means "soul" in Portuguese, offers diners the option of two five-course tasting menus, Costa a Costa, inspired by the sea, and Alma, a selection of the chef's favorite dishes. There are also a pair of three-course menus, Origens and Caminhos, plus an inventive al la carte list. Alma works very well as an upscale lunch venue but it's in the evening when the restaurant truly comes into its own after the lights have dimmed and a wonderfully intimate atmosphere pervades the room.
- 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."
- Best Restaurants: "For a truly international flavour, opt for the Caminhos, a three-course menu that reflect's Sá Pessoa's world travels."
- Best for Fine Dining Because: Alma combines all the elements for a fine dining night out: Michelin cuisine, a beautiful venue, and impeccable service.
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: One of Lisbon's exclusive Michelin-starred restaurants, Alma is quite simply a delightful journey through international flavours.
