Since I am not Portuguese, I usually would not care about visiting a foreign country association in Lisbon other than my own (Brazilian). But out of the blue my friends invited me to have lunch in this Cape Verdean restaurant and I accepted, and thank God I did, because only now I found out this treasure in the heart of Lisbon!

The place is located on the top of a commercial building, so if you think you are in the wrong place, that’s exactly where it is. Once leaving the elevator, on the 8th floor, you enter a wide room with really nice views over the city.

The place is rather simple but, believe me, quite packed. So it’s better to make a reservation beforehand, at least on music days. The food is gorgeous and very tasty. The staff is very kind and efficient. Try the famous “Cachupa” (low-cooked stew of corn, beans, and meat), or a tempting chicken creole or, like I did, a wonderful onion tuna steak, along with rice and beans.

If you dare, go there on a Thursday, and you will witness good live Cape Verdean music, the famous “Morna“, and a lot of people dancing happily while you have your delicious lunch. I know it sounds very strange, but it’s a perfect unique experience!
