Alcantara Cafe

15 Rua Maria Luisa Holstein
Lisbon, 1300-388, Portugal
TEL: 351-21-362-1226

A place to see-and-be-seen, the Alcantara Cafe, in the neighborhood of the same name, is housed in a 600-year-old timber warehouse that was formerly a printing factory. Redesigned in 1989, the Baroque-industrial decor is stunning — high ceilings, fluted steel columns, drapes of red velvet, large arched mirrors, and multi-paned windows. Classical sculptures and marble walls surround the wooden tables and burgundy leather seats. International and Portuguese cuisine is served, with the steak tartare being a signature dish. The Portuguese entree of the day may include the fried codfish (bacalhau) or meat and bean stew (feijoada).

Insider Tip:

The restaurant stays fairly empty on weekdays but reservations are a must on weekends.
