Popping into Taberna is to explore Portugal's extraordinary culinary heritage. The restaurant is designed to resemble a rustic eatery, something that typifies the cozy, family-run cafes scattered throughout the country's interior. But this is a place to eat that also serves as a mercearia, a grocer's store that sells all sorts of authentic goodies, anything from hams and cheeses to jams and honey. Indeed, eating here is a delightfully eclectic experience. I mean are you in the city or the countryside? Taberna is all about savouring traditional delicacies carefully reinvented to appeal to both those who enjoy a good hearty meal or prefer a lighter though no less tasty snack. Appetizers, soups, salads, grilled dishes, and desserts grace the menu, which also indicates vegan and gluten-free choices, and those that contain potential allergens. A great choice of Portuguese wines helps wash it all down.
- Best Restaurants: "Take a wander down the corridor for a wonderful surprise, another Avillez eatery known as Patio which takes the Portuguese culinary experience to another level."
- Baixa/Chiado's Best Restaurants: "Consider lunch over dinner as the experience is less crowded and the vibe more relaxing."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: The man behind Tabera is Jose Avillez, Portugal's most famous chef (he holds two Michelin stars at the city's Belcanto restaurant).
- Best for Baixa/Chiado's Best Restaurants Because: Bairro da Avillez is a novel Lisbon dining experience where you can eat and shop under the same roof. Epicureans will be suitably impressed.
