Owned by the acclaimed actor John Malkovich, Bica do Sapato is one of the best restaurants in town. It was designed to appeal to a wide array of customers and, as such, you can find several different styles in here.
By the ground floor, you can find beautiful, 70's inspired decoration to go with the traditional portuguese cuisine, with just a tad of other mediterranean flavors.
The upper floor, though, is an entirely different story. In it, you can taste what is probably some of the best sushi in town.
Having been a portuary building, deactivated in the meantime, Bica do Sapato offers vast amounts of space, high-ceilinged rooms and - of course- an absolutely terrific view of the Tagus river through its plate-glass windows.
With chef Manuel Bóia, one of the best portuguese chefs of his generation, this restaurant near the Santa Apolónia train station will surely be appreciated by all visitors of fine taste.
