Close to the Amoreiras Gardens, Casa da Comida has long been considered by locals to be one of the finest French-Portuguese restaurants in Lisbon since its founding nearly 40 years ago. Under the direction of owner Salomé Alcântara and head chef Miguel Carvalho, Casa da Comida recently underwent a physical and artistic renovation, bringing an eclectic charm to its decoration and touches of avante-garde to its cuisine.
