Tabik is new on the Lisbon scene, and the young chef Manuel Lino, much admired. Located on the Avenue das Libertadas, you wouldn’t expect to find a restaurant like this here. The interiors have distinct touches of Scandinavia – lots of pale wood and a minimalist feel, but the faux tiled floors remind you you’re in Portugal. Large doors open the restaurant and bar completely up to the street which is lovely. The food is delicate, delicious and beautifully presented. You get the whole gourmet experience – from warm bread and butter to a pretty amuse bouche. If you just opt for a main course and a (obligatory) pudding, then it’s not too expensive. Highly recommend the Portuguese version of a rosemary creme brûlée. Delicious.
