Description: A few steps from Marques Pombal, our staff welcomes you in a comfortable and cosy atmosphere. Elaborated with a French technique, our "à la carte" Menu, available at lunch and dinner, gives you an accessible "fine dining" experience thanks to fresh Portuguese products. Our wine list will give you an overview of the amazing variety of wines that can be found in the main Portuguese regions. France and Italy are also represented through their best "terroirs" for our nostalgic guests. Our staff is always more than happy to recommend any wine pairing possibilities with our food menu. Our 14€ Executive Menu, elaborated with fresh products of the day, includes a starter, a main course, a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and a coffee. It is available at lunch time from Monday to Friday. If you would rather have a nice "aperitivo", we also have a choice of cheeses and charcuterie from Portugal or imported from France and Italy. We hope to see you soon at Paralelo 45!

We found this restaurant by pure coincidence when walking down the street. We were really surprised by the good quality of the plates which are inspired by french cuisine ( coq au vin and souris d'agneau). For each plate there was a suggestion of wine which allowed us to taste several good portugeese wines.

Had the lunchtime menu with some extra wine to keep us going. The service and the food were all excellent. 3 great courses served in a friendly manner . Wine was excellent as well. Can't think of any reason not to go there.

The restaurant looks cosy (but don't sit on the sofa;) and it is really relaxed and the wines are nice. The food was good but nothing really especial. The service a bit fumbling wasn't however our waitress was quite new. I ate tartar steak and it was too spicy, the meat didn't taste.

We had dinner here recently when we were visiting Lisbon. The restaurant was a short walk from the Intercontinental Hotel where we were staying. They helped me choose a Portuguese wine which didn’t disappoint, in fact it was so good I had 3 glasses! Although there were no vegetarian options on the menu, they offered to make me a vegetable risotto that was so good, nothing was left on my plate. I also had the desert of the day which was very tart and lemony but so, so good! We dined with another couple and we all had a very enjoyable dinner. We all loved the dinners we had and it made for a memorable dinner in Lisbon. I would highly recommend this restaurant. You won’t go wrong. The staff went out of their way to make sure we all liked our choices. We never felt rushed and were at the restaurant for 3 hours enjoying the company, the food and the wine.
