Michelin star food and service for a sensible price. As a mixed group of vegetarians and meat eaters, it's almost impossible to find a restaurant that leaves everyone satisfied and feeling happy. Arnau, who served us, was charming, knowledgeable and flexible to our palettes. Lovely food and the Carob brownie really ended the meal of a high! A restaurant to... More

We visited this lovely restaurant on Saturday evening, 8 of us, in Lisbon for the weekend. I'd previously researched gluten-free eating as I am coeliac and had then booked by email. When we walked in, the look and feel of the restaurant had us feeling it might be too expensive for us, but we needn't have worried. We had the... More

Was pleased to discover a clearly labelled English menu with plenty of gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian and vegan options. I had gluten free bread with pumpkin soup. Everything was great. Friendly and knowledgeable service. A great choice for those with dietary restrictions.

For lunch: Soup and a simple appetizer buffet. A rather big main dish. Dessert buffet: two cakes, flan and fresh fruit. You also get bread, water and wine/soft drink. The price was 14,50€. The soup and bread was good. The appetizer buffet was not that exiting, but have options that were okay. I had a risooto as a main and... More

We wandered about Lisbon enjoying the sights and sounds but were disappointed with the "cookie cutter authentic" Portuguese cuisine restaurants located next to each other. The vendors each displaying a portfolio of their specialty dishes then offering their business cards. One place suggested by our Hotel Tivoli was Santa Marta which was this typical restaurant. Why we wandered across the... More

I ate here for dinner while I was staying at the hotel. I had the pumpkin gnocchi which was probably some of the best gnocchi I have ever eaten in my life. You could tell that it was picked fresh and made fresh and not frozen. They have a great wine selection as well. The Mediterranean inspired menu changes seasonally,... More

The restaurant is located in the Inspira Santa Marta hotel. When I first walked into the restaurant, I was impressed by the modern decor and signs about sustainability.

I regret I did not try this restaurant earlier or I would have returned. The shrimp and lime risotto was perfect; the best I have ever tasted anywhere in the world. The staff recommended a white wine from the Duoro valley that went perfectly with the dish.
