In Brief
Without a doubt one of the best gastronomic experiences I have ever had. After all this is a restaurant with two Michelin stars. Quality of food: excellent! Quality of service: excellent! Quality of the wines: excellent! Wow effect: maximum! An inevitable choice for a special day. I strongly recommend this one.

We came here for my mum's birthday dinner and had the Lisbon menu. It was quite extraordinary. Especially the golden goose egg and the delicate suckling pig. For what it is, it's actually quite affordable and they also have a great list of Portguese wines. If you want to treat yourself to something quite unique, go here.

Definitely abundance of creativity and fun can be found in all the dishes. However, I would expect more for such a highly rated restaurant. I ordered Lisbon menu with 3 wine pairings. It took awhile for wines to start opening up, so the wines were not good pairs, personally, to the pace of all the dishes. The egg dish was quite amazing actually. And Dip in the sea (the cod dish) was pleasantly surprising and so were the chef's compliments. On the other hand, both of the meat dishes were very disappointing. Deserts were somewhat mediocre. Overall, the experience (including service) was good and food was all right. Had the price been a little bit more reasonable, I don't think my ratings will be so harsh.

Allow me to preface that this was my first 2+ Michelin star experience, perhaps I expected something different than I should have. That said I have trained in a french kitchen and been to quite a few restaurants considered to be top tier. The food was... Ok. I was consistently presented with experiences I had never had, but I was not consistently presented with good tasting food. Every single dish was without question cooked to perfection, however during the full 14 courses, I felt like everything was a little under seasoned. I *loved* the new textures and experiences brought by the molecular gastronomy, however I don't think it was enough overall. Also, my wife suffers from some admittedly annoying food allergies, but I have had many lesser restaurants handle it better. She had dishes that were honestly just bad. I know that a 2 star restaurant like this excels at perfection, but I believe they've lost their way some. In the name of a type of "perfection" I believe we got some really mediocre dishes and in the case of something made to work around food allergies, some bad food. All around I was disappointed. I just expected more than an experience. Out of 14 courses most fell on a personal scale of 6-7 out of 10. I am disappoint.

Absolutely delicious food. Extremely courteous and attentive staff. The price was very high but it was certainly an experience I recommend. Try the tasting menus!
