Bica do Sapato
One of the first “it” restaurants in Lisbon, a status it has held almost since its inception, it had an undeniable aura of glamour and sophistication, and its status is further elevated with John Malkovich and Catherine Deneuve being partners of this restaurant as well.
With a privileged location by the river in one of the old warehouses of Santa Apolónia, it boasts and ample space, superb decoration and unobstructed panoramic views of the river with an outside terrace to die for in the summer months. Although the contemporary decor is ubiquitous, Bica do Sapato is divided into several different spaces and cuisine types – entry is through the bar, where you can have a quick bite, followed by a large room with mediterranic cuisine, and a top floor that serves only Japanese food. The extensive culinary offering is completed by top-notch service Bica dos Sapato’s employees provide as well as wine & drinks to match.
