Mercado is the brand new restaurant on the ground floor of The Lumiares. With high ceilings and huge glass fronted doors that open up onto the street, this is a light-filled and inviting space that is a fantastic addition to the hotel – and to the neigbourhood.
Mercado is a restaurant of two halves – literally! On the right (as you enter from the street) is the café serving coffee, snacks and cakes in an informal setting. You can even buy cheeses and hams, home-made sandwiches and chutneys here if you fancy taking some back to your room for later…
On the left is the restaurant – still relaxed but serving light meals (salads/quiches) alongside delicious traditional Portuguese dishes including some of the chef’s all-time favourites honed from over twenty years in the business.
As with our rooftop restaurant Lumni, celebrated Portuguese chef Miguel Castro e Silva is at the helm and has created Mercado especially for The Lumiares. We think he’s done a fabulous job and absolutely love it – we hope you do too. Let us know what you think!
