Hg2 : The Hedonist

Viagem de Sabores

The neighbouring Romanesque Sé cathedral provides a loose theme for this charming restaurant. White prayer clothes are draped over the carved pew-like seating and a large panelled wall mounting hints at a stained-glass window effect. But any tones of religious austerity are reassuringly absent. Gentle candle light seeps through frosted glass, giving the bare stone archways an orange glow, while a relaxed crowd of diners gather for civilised conversation.

As its name aptly suggests, the restaurant truly is a journey of flavours. The menu is interestingly eclectic and fuses Thai, French and Portuguese cooking. There’s also a choice of vegetarian options – practically unheard of in carnivorous Portugal! The wine list is selective and of a high standard. The kitchen staff are commendably efficient at the busiest of times, and not a note of frenzy hangs in the air. This can be a cleansing experience for both the palate and the soul!
