“Blushing is the most peculiar and most human of all expressions.”

The beginning of a new year brings the birthday of my dear boyfriend and, since I like to plan something special, looking for a nice restaurant was a task I needed to undertake.

Lisbon has an enormous variety of restaurants to choose from and this time I wanted to take F out for a good meal, in a good place. Being that this beautiful city of mine is located near the river, my choice fell on a restaurant with either a terrace or a nice view of the coastline.

The title of the post is a quote taken from The Expression of Emotion in Man and Animals, by Mr.Charles Darwin, and fits the subject perfectly, since we had lunch at Darwin's Cafe.

Located in the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown (Algés), Darwin's Cafe is a beautiful restaurant with modern decoration and a relaxed atmosphere, while still maintaining a touch of sophistication. Besides the interior room there's a beautiful terrace, perfect for a coffee or tea (meals are only served inside).

The staff was very friendly and service was quick (probably because we had an early reservation and other customers only arrived when we were halfway through our meal). Plus, the food was very well served and presented and everything tasted A-MA-ZING!! 

Shrimp and octopus risotto with sundried tomato and fresh coriander

Spaghetti nero with shrimps, mango and caramelised celery

Birthday boy, Hendrick's and a Mojito!

 Definitely a place to come back to!

  1. Adorei o título deste post. E do post em geral também gostei, pela sugestão.
    No outro dia dizias que talvez fosses acabar o blog porque não tinhas inspiração... eu pessoalmente acho que deverias colocar mais posts a sugerir locais giros ou assim. ;)

      É óptimo ter feedback! A sugestão está mais que registada, vou ver se me aventuro por Lisboa e descubro mais uns sítios giros! :D
