I’m in the mood for “old world charm”: places that bring back the “cafe culture of yesteryears”, where you can stop for a coffee, have a drink or enjoy a delicious meal.

Café Lisboa, the 4th restaurant by Michelin starred chef José Avillez, has all that, plus a beautiful historical location, fabulous interiors and the right touch of modernity.
