100 Maneiras Restaurant, the Lisbon Way

100 Maneiras Restaurant, Lisbon
100 Maneiras Restaurant used to be one of Cascais‘ top dining choices, so it was sad news when it closed late last year. The good news is that it has reopened in the capital, and is now one of Lisbon’s most exciting new restaurants. It took over the space left empty by Olivier when that restaurant moved to Avenida da Liberdade, and has returned gastronomic excellence to that address in Bairro Alto.

What have also changed are the average prices, as the tasting menu that used to cost 68 euros is now between 25 and 30 euros (and here you can only get the tasting menu). The chef is Ljubomir Stanisic, a Yugoslavian (now Bosnian) who’s been living in Portugal for over a decade, and will continue to assure quality and creativity in the new Lisbon incarnation. What’s on the menu changes daily as only the freshest ingredients found that day at the Ribeira Market are used. Stanisic then spends the afternoon looking for several ways to come up with the most interesting dishes to surprise you at the table (“100 Maneiras” means “100 ways”). His preference goes to fish and lots of fresh vegetables, and everything is Portuguese-inspired.

The wine list is also outstanding, offering more than 100 carefully-selected labels that are priced at between 12 and 60 euros.
In the well-lit dining room you’ll only be accompanied by about 30 other people, as it’s a small but ideal place to try such an intimate dining experience.

Address: Rua do Teixeira, 35
Open from 8PM to 2AM (closed Sundays)

    We stumbled in at the beginning of May 2009, looking for Olivier. We had the tasting menu (how could you not?) and were delighted from beginning to end. The sommelier made a fantastic meal perfect. Do not miss this restaurant.

    I found this restaurant doing research online. I would never have found it otherwise. It was by far the best meal I’ve ever had. We have ton a ton of tasting menus all over Europe and this was the first one where I wasn’t disappointed by any of the courses.
