There's never been a better time to eat out in Lisbon. We are aware of the enormous difficulties the pandemic brought to this sector, but we are also confident the best, non towards mass tourism business models, will take the lead. 

That's the case of Leopoldo Calhau, a man who was always ahead of his time - and the genious behind Taberna do Calhau and Bla Bla Glu Glu - who makes simple yet fancy portuguese food (inspired by his hometown Alentejo) in a space that also brigns all his heritage.

Leopoldo invited us to Taberna do Calhau and, while using a Breton, cooked an amazing lunch.

Of course you can see it for yourselves, but book a table for four and don't miss any plate.
