2 Michelin-star Restaurants
ALMA is a fine dining restaurant, with signature cuisine, served informally in a sophisticated ambience. It aims to be an innovative restaurant, not only regarding food proposals, but also to simplify and break down some basic rules. For Henrique Sá Pessoa, there is only good cuisine and bad cuisine. He defines his as a tasteful cuisine: refined taste, perfect technique and excellent product. The basis of his culinary philosophy is in his influences and references: travels around the world, the passion for Asia, the knowledge of traditional Portuguese cuisine and the life in Lisbon.
