One of the things that I love the most about Lisbon and Portugal is the amazing cuisine that we have. As a country with 800 km of coast and where, for most of the 850 years of history, life revolved around the sea, it’s normal that we have a lot of fish on our menus. However we also cook meat that is close to perfection.
In Adega das Gravatas there are a couple of really good options on the menu, from a wide range of fish, to a couple of very traditional options of meat. There is a very interesting steak de Mirandesa, that is something very traditional from the North of Portugal. Then there’s my favorite choice every time I go there, that is “Bife na Pedra”, or steak on the rock, that is basically a raw steak that is brought to the table with a scolding hot rock, where we cook it.
But Adega das Gravatas also has something that will bring a smile to your face, it has ties spread throughout the entire restaurant, most of them gifts from former clients. Some of them were important clients and even have their picture on the walls. Check for example the ones from most of the Benfica team.
