Fodor's Expert Review A Travessa

$$$$ Lapa and Estrela Belgian

Its lovely location in an 18th-century former convent (also home to the Museu da Marioneta) is just one of the trump cards of this Luso-Belgian restaurant. Meals begin with a selection of at least eight starters, including the restaurant's famous "black pork secrets" and scrambled egg with wild mushrooms. Fish and meat mains are superb, and come accompanied by a selection of separately plated sides such as spinach and turnip purees and oven-baked potatoes. The interior is inviting and, on warm days, you can sit at tables set out in the old convent's courtyard. Parking is a puzzle in the narrow streets of the old fishermen's neighborhood of Madragoa, but the restaurant has an arrangement with the Largo Vitorino Damásio car park in Santos (with transfer service, no fee). Call to be picked up in the restaurant's van.
