Gambrinus

UPDATE – PLEASE NOTE, GAMBRINUS NO LONGER HAS A MICHELIN STAR

There’s no better place to sample seafood and hops than Gambrinus – that’s if you have the budget to break! Borrowing its name from the God of beer, is a this beer house with fine dining pretensions.

The range of locally caught seafood is impressive and boasts creatures long-forgotten from the deep. Staff, robed in purple velvet waistcoats (unbelievably, there are 65 of them in total!), take their business extremely seriously and each dish can be tailored to specific wishes.

There are two entrances to Gambrinus, one to a sit-down restaurant (complete with concierge), the other to a less formal saloon-style bar. The latter is more suitable for lunchtime crowds and late-night diners. Exotic wood panelling provides a ‘home-from-home’ for the politicians and men of letters who occupy the crisp linen-covered tables. This place makes all other mere mortal cervejarias look like McDonald’s. Recommended, if your idea of heaven is a lightly buttered langoustine on a porcelain plate.
