Concierge.com's insider take:
Beautiful views over flower-filled terraces to Eduardo VII park from this restaurant in the Four Seasons make the lavish lunch buffet here extra-delightful. At night, the à la carte dinner is worth the splurge, especially since chef de cuisine Stéphane Hestin joined straight from the three-Michelin-star La Côte d'Or in Saulieu, France. Hestin's classical training adds layers that Portuguese tradition never imagined to local dishes like a seafood rice casserole, but mostly he produces exquisite Mediterranean dishes with a French influence that are all his own: wild mushroom tempura; sautéed crayfish with chestnuts, celery, and truffle oil; sea bass, calamari, and clams with spider crab emulsion and asparagus; milk-fed veal with citrus and pistachio pesto.
