Advance reservations recommended.
- International cuisine and fine wines are de rigueur at this, one of the city's most stylish and attractive restaurants. Set overlooking the river near Lux nightclub, Bica do Sapato's upscale environment has earned it a fashionable patronage, not least because one of its business partners is the American actor John Malkovich, who pops in now and again unannounced. Portuguese culinary heritage is upheld with dishes like braised turbot in spinach and clams garnished with coriander. Upstairs, a minimalist sushi bars serves excellent sashimi, tempura, kushiyaki and other Japanese gastronomy. A bistro bar offers light meals during the day. The riverfront esplanade is a delight. © Nileguide 2011
Located right next to the trendy nightclub Lux, Bica do Sapato is armed equally to the teeth with the chic restaurant factor. Co-owned by American actor John Malkovich, The spacious Bica do Sapato restaurant, bistro and sushi bar has its decor trendy, waiters dressed a la mode and food that lives up to it's reputation. They do experiment with the menu often, so if you aren't adventurous enough to try their reindeer or buffalo, stick to their Portuguese fusion or sushi. No matter what you choose to order, you'll be sure to find a nice wine to compliment it. As far as dressing goes, pull out all the stops.
