Tavares is much more than a restaurant: it is one of the symbols of the gastronomy and architecture of Lisbon. A gastronomic experience in a place that is living its third century of existence is a journey in time full of memories and emotions.

Three centuries of history

It is one of the oldest restaurants in Europe - it opened its doors in 1784 and still retains the name of the Tavares brothers, who took over the business in 1823. It has become a place of worship among chefs and gastronomic critics from all around the world, whose history of almost three centuries merges itself with the History of Portugal. In 1861, the businessman Vicente Caldeira wanted to make the house 'the most luxurious place in Lisbon', and it did. The Tavares has become a national icon and one of the most exclusive and luxurious restaurants in the world. The chefs may have changed over the years, but the Tavares restaurant remains one of the best, most exquisite and historic restaurants in Lisbon.

Contemporary Portuguese flavors 

An unforgettable journey through the contemporary Portuguese flavors. You can choose "Tavares" or "Inspiração" tasting menus, or choose À La Carte. Among dishes with a more classic inspiration, such as Cod, Grain and Sesame or Iberian Pork and Broad Beans Stew, the menu is varied and offers different options. Foie-Gras and Strawberries; Swordfish, Orange and Carrot; Lamb, Beetroot and Red Currants; Pastel de Nata 'Tavares'; or the rich board of Portuguese Cheeses are some of the proposals that should not be missed.
