About
In the heart of Chiado, Henrique Sá Pessoa’s Alma restaurant is one of the greatest gastronomic references in Lisboa. The chef and his team were awarded by the most known gastronomy guide. A chef’s cusine, a wide room, elegant and comfortable, perfect for all. With two tasting menus – Costa a Costa, with 5 moments, with a sea inspiration, and Alma, with the chef’s favorite dishes – and a a la carte menu, where the client chooses his own menu. Henrique Sá Pessoa is already well known and during his career, he has been working with the biggest worldwide chefs. In Alma, is not only the cusine that amazes you. The building from the XVIII century, the sharp but easy going service and the feeling

If you can’t get a Dinner reservation, go for Lunch, that’s what we did and had a great experience. We booked 2-3 months in advance.
