As locations go, classy Michelin-recommended Tágide is hard to beat. Set within an elegant 18th-century townhouse in Lisbon's gilt-edged Chiado quarter, the restaurant commands glorious views across the city's downtown area â" an especially alluring site after dark, particularly if you're seated on the terrace. The menu errs towards traditional Portuguese cuisine, with chef Gonçalo Costa drawing on regional ingredients and time-honored techniques. Daily set lunch and dinner a la carte options are supplemented by an inspired menu dégustation that really does showcase Costa's talent in the kitchen. It's a seasonal selection, so dining here over several different months is perhaps the only way to truly savor the gastronomy (if you're that fortunate). Otherwise, opt for the beguiling tasting menu. As befitting such quality, the wine list perfectly complements the food.
- Best for Fine Dining Because: Tágide is coupled with the less formal but equally attractive wine and tapas bar.
- Best for Baixa/Chiado's Best Restaurants Because: Haute cuisine with one of the finest â" and romantic â" views in Lisbon makes Tagide a "must try" with foodies.
- Best for Romantic Dining, Best Restaurants Because: The views combine rooftop Lisbon with the river, and the fine dining restaurant coupled with the less formal wine bar is an alluring combination.
