Lisbon's Best  Fancy Restaurants

Fancy restaurants can be very silly. Everyone knows that. From the tweezer obsession, to the staff’s silent and diehard commitment to your hydration, to the last words of a single leaf of radicchio you hear before eating it. It’s all OTT. But sometimes, OTT is what you want. Maybe it’s your birthday, or an anniversary, or you’re just in the mood for someone to lift the lid off of an extravagant bowl to reveal one single holy water boiled chickpea for you to eat. Whatever the reason, you want to be in a restaurant and eating food that feels a bit ~fancy~, and these are the spots for just that.
