Pestana Palace Hotel
The Pestana Palace Hotel Lisboa is considered one of the most luxurious and exquisite hotels in the world and it will exceed your expectations. It’s located at the top of Santo Amaro and it takes us back in time to the late 19th century. Pestana Palace is absolutely breathtaking and each room is unique. With an exemplary service, this is the perfect place to sleep in Lisbon!
On Avenida da Liberdade, next to the most amazing stores, a hotel that combines two perfect concepts: luxury and comfort. If you’re looking for a great night’s sleep, this intimate boutique hotel is also a great choice! It’s like staying at a good friend’s home with all the perks we desire, along with luxurious details.
Feitoria is located inside the Altis Belém Hotel and was awarded a Michelin Star in 2011. The ideal word to describe it is “excellent” and the menu fits the concept perfectly, combining the delicious dishes with the elegant decor. Led by Chef João Rodrigues, Feitoria presents us with a bit of the Portuguese identity, without forgetting the innovation that we like to see in these kinds of restaurants. If you’re looking for an exclusive experience, reserve the Chef’s Table.
It is, definitely a restaurant you should visit the next time you’re in Lisbon. Belcanto, by José Avillez –one of Portugal’s culinary references – already has two Michelin Stars (it was the first restaurant in Lisbon to receive this honor!) and was elected one of the best 100 restaurants in the world by the prestigious “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List”. Revisited Portuguese cuisine is the main character at Belcanto and the sophisticated atmosphere makes it perfect for a relaxed, classic dinner.
100 Maneiras Bistro
If you want a nice, quiet dinner with a special twist, choose the “Hendrick’s Room” at 100 Maneiras Bistro. It’s an exclusive room with only 13 seats, where exclusive gin-based menus are served. A memorable experience is guaranteed and you’ll have a lot to talk about while you’re tasting the most delicious dishes.
