Solar dos Presuntos

One of Lisbon’s most renown restaurants, frequented by business men and politicians. It is very similar to our Ferreira restaurant in Montreal, except that the cuisine is more typical of Portugal as it specializes in meals from the Minho area. Carlos recommends it for lunch time. You’ll enjoy its three floors and five rooms covered with photos of celebrities that visited the restaurant, including Carlos. Will you be able to spot it?
