    Absolutely AMAZING dinner here! It's housed inside the museum of pharmacy in what looks like an old pharmacy. The atmosphere is fun and different, but the real star is the surprise dinner menu. For 28 euros, you get a 5 course meal: soup, starter, fish course, meat course and dessert. The meal literally is a surprise, you don't know until it shows up at your table. At the beginning, they ask if you have allergies or any particular preferences so they can tailor for your needs, but other than that, the chef does his thing! We had:
    -Green pea soup with cinnamon and pieces of blackened pork (served in a measuring beaker!)
    -Three starters: cod ball with spicy mayo and salad, octopus salad with apples on puff pastry and duck pate with apple on toast and honey
    -Fish course: the BEST squid ink risotto ever! HUGE chunks of perfectly cooked squid steak. We literally scrapped the bowl clean
    -Meat course: Blackened pork in Madeira wine sauce served with corn fritters and sweet Portuguese potatoes.
    -Dessert extravaganza: sliced pineapple, edible flowers with honey, pear crumble, white chocolate creme brulee and chocolate mousse with a Portuguese liqueur.

    The service was great, everyone was so friendly and even when we had never tried this particular Portuguese liqueur, they gave us free shots so we knew what it tasted like.

    Highly recommend!

    A good example of the petiscos revival. The food is good and the pharmacy ambiance is different. Try to have lunch with a beatifull view of the river.

    A really fun pharmacy-themed restaurant located in an old pharmacy museum where all the servers wear surgical gowns and the chef surprises you with a 5 course Portuguese meal with dessert. The cocktails have prescription like names and my receipt even came in a pillbox. Go for the food, but more for the interesting apothecary atmosphere.
