Hg2 : The Hedonist

Santo Antonio

A Sunday opening and leafy outdoor terrace are the main draws for this busy Alfama restaurant. Favoured by media workers and artistic types, the atmosphere is satisfyingly relaxed. Long wooden tables encourage customers to interact, and vibrant conversation across flickering candles continues well into the night. Upstairs, customers can opt for more formal dining. Black and white portraits of movie stars swamp the wall space; some were actual visitors. This self-conscious effort to create a bohemian environment works surprisingly well.
rnThe restaurant takes its name from Lisbon’s patron saint and a collection of religious statues have been donated over the years. Every June, on the feast day of Saint Anthony, a big party takes place in the bairro. The menu offers a wide selection of tapas. Dishes are interesting on paper, but disappointingly don’t meet expectations and are a little overpriced. The perfect spot to meet locals and indulge in some intellectual conversation.
