NileGuide Expert tip:
Housed on the ground floor of the Fontana Park Hotel, a Design Hotels property, Saldanha Mar is one of Lisbon's leading fish and seafood restaurants. With its ivory-white interior bathed in soft natural light, this minimalist-styled eatery is as much about appreciating cutting-edge interior design as it is enjoying haute cuisine. The menu honours Portuguese gastronomy but is influenced by Mediterranean flavours. Ingredients are sourced daily from local markets and chef Paula Carção directs a kitchen that takes full advantage of this wonderfully fresh maritime harvest. Saldanha Mar is particularly known for its grilled fish specialities, served lunchtimes or throughout the evening under candlelight.
