Fodor's Expert Review Largo do Paço
This internationally renowned restaurant in the Casa da Calçada Hotel has won award after award for the innovative Portuguese cuisine by chef Tiago Bonito, including a Michelin star. Carefully constructed tasting menus (including one for vegetarians) are the way to go, but you may also order à la carte. Dishes might include bacalhau cooked with parsley and black olives, or braised oxtail with wild mushrooms. The staff can offer expert help in choosing wine from the lengthy list (which includes the hotel's own vinho verde).
