With a larger group of gentlemen the Espal Habrasas was chosen as the place to eat dinner. Located on the Docas it’s just a convenient 60 minute walk from Rossio, taxis seem to be the preferential choice. The appetizer were some octopi with garlic and oil. In terms of texture it was rubber and mush together, the taste just what you get when you cook garlic too long. The restaurant prides itself on meat and are offering beef cooked tableside on a hot stone. Since you choose the size of your cut, this seems like a good idea. The french fries served with the meat are bland, the sauces from a 20 litre convenience food container and the meat is soso. Unfortunatley the hot stone just wasn’t hot enough and it was not possible to grill all the meat perfectly. Prices are okay (compared to CH), expensive for Lisboa and too high for the quality of the food:
