Kais, Lisbon

Cais da Viscondessa, Rua da Cintura-Santos
Portugal 1200-109
Tel: 351 21 393 2930's insider take:

Another dockside converted industrial space, Kais's dramatic interior was designed by Maria Jose Salavisa. He kept the 19th-century tram warehouse's high ceilings with their ironwork, pulleys, and chains and the original exposed brick, and installed a wood floor, olive trees, a waterfall (echoing the quays the restaurant's named after) and Frank Lloyd Wright–esque furniture. Standing across from (and with the same owners as) the notorious pair of clubs Kremlin and Kapital, Kais is a see-and-be-seen place that turns into a supper club after 10 pm. The trendy food (Mozambique prawn curry) has a good reputation, but be warned: Every conference in town seems to bring its delegates here to experience the hip side of Lisbon, which interferes somewhat with the edgy vibe.

Closed Sundays. This restaurant is closed for the first 15 days in August.
