Great Food, A Lion & The Chiado Palace

The Chiado Palace, in Lisbon, the centenary rooms, with the vaulted ceilings and walls lined with paintings with mythological allegories, gave way to a new concept of restoration. Seven spaces divide this building dating from 1781, with a gastronomic selection that goes from the most accessible, on the ground floor, to the high gastronomy, on the upper floors.

To receive it, flying over the foyer, is a large golden lion that stands 10 meters high and which leads to the noblest rooms. It was in this palace that the aristocracy and the good people of Lisbon danced and met in magnificent banquets in the company of unpublished works of art. The story now repeats itself a few meters from Praça Luís de Camões
