Our hotel is created with the mindset that we use different spaces as one commercial organism that is constantly evolving throughout the day / night. Tantalo is a 12-room hotel, a restaurant featuring a communal kitchen-style atmosphere serving shared comfort dishes influenced by ingredients from around the globe, the lively ground floor bar / lounge and finally the only public outdoor rooftop bar / lounge in Casco Viejo with incredible views. Each hotel room features individually designed custom art by different local artists ensuring that no two rooms will be the same.

We had drinks at this rooftop bar. Lovely view, nice vibe and tasty drinks. Variety of people there. We didn't eat there. Only drawback was that a lot of the tables were "reserved" but there was no-one at them.
