Created in 1978, A Travessa is located near the old quarter of Madragoa and the aristocratic residences of Lapa (the embassy district), in the heart of the Bernadine Convent, which dates from the 17th century. For an intimate and contemplative atmosphere, book a table in one of the rooms of the old refectory, and sit down around the large fireplace, beneath a vaulted ceiling of red brick. The tables on the terrace, in the cloister, are the most romantic. In this unique setting and according to the chef's inspirations, enjoy grilled John Dory and monkfish, milk-fed lamb or sautéed foie gras. To finish, don't miss the prisco do abade, a traditional dessert made from egg yolks and sugar. A delight!
