Inside dining room and decoration at The Insólito

The Insólito

Restaurant & Bar · Lisbon, Portugal

Set within The Independente Suites & Terrace, this thought-provoking restaurant is defined by its quirky atmosphere – from food to context – set in the rooftop of a 19th century Town Palace with a stunning view of both the old town and the river Tagus.

At The Insólito you will find a place to rediscover flavours and textures, sometimes through the least expected combinations.

We look to explore the unusual side of food and drinks; to provoke the ingredients themselves to challenge both the local and the international palate.

Challenging conceptions, tastes and preparation methods, at The Insólito we aim to provoke, and share with you an unexpected and playful side of Portuguese gastronomy.

Our two main areas, indoors and outdoors, offer two completely different settings, both equally delightful. Stay indoors, in one of our 30 indoor seating places, including 6 at the counter, and admire the mismatched collection of vintage works of art; or, step outside into the sun terrace, and marvel at the stunning view of the Baixa and Tagus River from one of the 32 seating places.

Never shy of a challenge, The Insólito will most definitely surprise you.

The best bar to drink original cocktails and have fun.

Cobre

Cocktail Corner · Lisbon, Portugal

Inspired by the rich history of cocktails and by the multiple successful experiments at The Decadente and The Insólito, we felt that it was time to introduce cocktail culture to Lisbon.

We drew further inspiration from cities such as London, New York and Berlin and decided to go for a décor that would modernize the perception of bars locally. That is how Cobre – Copper – was born.

We researched the history of cocktails and we were stirred, no pun intended, by the nature of the metal that defines the space. A noble and historic material, that marked the end of the prehistoric ages and whose qualities are synonymous with the principles that we want this bar to stand for.

In that sense, our chief-bartender aimed to created new, creative and stimulating concoctions as well as reinvent age-old classics. We’ve made sure that nobody is drinking on an empty stomach and we briefed our food consultant to create a sharing menu that serves dishes from all over the world.

Swimming pool at guesthouse Uva do Monte garden, in the summer light.

Uva do Monte

Blueberry Farm · Melides, Alentejo

Set within the Herdade da CostaTerra amidst one of Europe’s most beautiful and untouched coastlines, Uva do Monte guesthouse is the perfect relaxing getaway, both enveloped in the countryside and within earshot of the ocean waves.

The guesthouse was created from the reconversion of an old residence of a family of farmers who worked the land at Herdade Costa Terra. The original house was built for a large family, thought out for community life, in complete harmony with the surrounding farm area. Today, the essence of community remains at the Uva do Monte guesthouse, in the same simple and down-to-earth way of life.

Uva do Monte is, in fact, the regional term for blueberries and this lea has been used by several generations of farmers to grow the most varied fruit and vegetables. Today, it is a place of relaxation and calm, where you can go to get away from the stress of everyday life.

About 2 km away you will find the Aberta Nova Beach – an almost entirely deserted beach and one of this coast’s best kept secrets. At night, when the sea is rougher, you can hear the waves at Uva do Monte and by day you will find that this beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the Summer sun.
