Pão à Mesa

In a Portuguese home, com certeza!

All (or almost all) of the dishes include bread - such is the idea behind Pão à Mesa, a restaurant with a concept that celebrates one of the ingredients that's always present on the Portuguese tables.

In Rua Dom Pedro V, at Príncipe Real, we come across this place that combines tradition with modernity, the recipes of other times with the city's bustle, and where Portuguese cuisine is reinvented, day after day. This is Pão à Mesa, which we were curious to try, and which has not let down a bit.

Between cheeses, sausages, meat dishes, fish dishes and desserts... Bread is the star of the menu, and the restaurant offers an experience that comforts us with the same flavors as always, surprising us with this new way of approaching and reinventing Portuguese cuisine.

Between notes in cork and a tribute to Fernando Pessoa, Pão à Mesa brings us to what's best done in Portugal - from wines to poetry, passing, of course, through the gastronomy that makes our mouths water just by thinking of it. We tried the creamy duck rice, with medium-cooked magret, parmesan tile, and duck demi-glace, and we already want to go back - our mouths are watering just by picturing it!

Cool Tip: After dinner at Pão à Mesa, go to Pavilhão Chinês, a place with so much to see that it always deserves another visit.
