Description: Who passes by sessenta will get to know the Portuguese cuisine worked with the finesse of the best national restaurants. In a comfortable environment designed so that their customers can feel at home, but with the advantage of being served by someone who knows how to do it, enjoy the delicious combinations of specialties and wines served by the glass. At the end linger over a good conversation while having a fantastic dessert. At lunch time, sessenta offers an informal atmosphere and serves quick meals without forgetting the essential: the high quality of the food and drinks. At night the environment becomes more intimate and quieter.Wifi free

“Great food; wonderful staff”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Once again, I relied on the recommendations found on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. I had checked with the concierge at the Four Seasons, but he had never heard of the place.

When the cab driver had trouble finding it I bean to wonder if I had made a mistake. But that all ended when I went inside.

The owner greeted us warmly and took us to a table. His English and that of his waiter were fine and with their help, we selected a nice wine, Dialogo, a very drinkable red from the Douro region of Portugal.

The owner took a tiny hole-in-the wall coffee shop and converted it into a really cute restaurant, using artwork, paint and probably a lot of sweat equity. It is not fancy, but it is charming.

But the food was exceptional. We ordered grilled prawns for an appetizer and almost fainted when they were served, They were the size of small lobsters and were scrumptious. Then, while we were waiting for our entrees, we were served samplings of the day's homemade soup and some hors d'oeuvres of smoked salmon on crackers.

The soup was so good that my wife canceled her dessert and had the soup instead.

Between the food, the attentive service and the very reasonable pricing, Sessenta is a winner. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

“Not sure what happened”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We had such high hopes to eat here, and so we did. For lunch. I ordered a pasta with fish, my partner ordered the steak. The food was definitely not bad, but also not great. The waiter was very kind. I guess that it really depends when you go to Sessenta, cause this time it wasn't worth it. Unfortunately!

“Superb. Fantastic food!”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We went to Sessenta simply because it was very close to our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised. Portions were not specially big but the fish was delicious. The restaurant itself was small but cosy and quiet, something we really appreaciated after a busy day. We didn't have dessert (they looked fantastic, though) but ended the night with a nice sherry. It was expensive at all, taking into account the quality of the food.

“Very convenient AND very good”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Sessenta was just across the road from Hotel Real Palacio. This was so convenient, beacuse we had travelled & arrived on a Friday evening, hungry & didn't want to go too far. A passerby recommended it & we were so happy with it. VERY pleasant staff. They recommended an excellent wine. We had the 'taster' menu (4 courses) & enjoyed all of it. In fact we went back the next evening, for dessert & port, after a disappointing meal somewhere else! There is also a small bar & they do take-aways too. Highly recommended

“A gem in a hotel district”
Reviewed November 26, 2012 via mobile

I truly recommend a visit to this gem, placed in the middle of a hotel district. The food, Portuguese with a twist, was delicious, the prices fair, and the service perfect. The quiet atmosphere was nice and made us stay for a full three-course dinner.
Don't miss this place, especially if you stay at a hotel close by.
