The walk is very pleasant, and certainly opens the appetite, so the best suggestion, right there, 10 minutes away on foot you will find: SANA Malhoa. A hotel that is distinguished by its sophisticated and contemporary decoration. Here you will find a Mediterranean Restaurant where, as the name indicates, you will find Mediterranean cuisine where you can delight yourself with the majestic lamb chops on a plate lacquered in honey with mint or with a choice of the marinated monkfish from our coast with hints of smoke, shrimp on a velvety truffled potato. The recommendation is that whatever dessert you order, ask for it to be served along with a coffee on the interior terrace where you can take the opportunity to spend a few more hours checking emails and making up for those missing conference calls. Still at the SANA Malhoa, there is nothing better than ending a working day with a quick stop at the gym or an express treatment at the SAYANNA WELLNESS & SPA.
From here, enjoy the late afternoon. If after a busy day, what you need is some shopping therapy or simply a stroll along the beautiful Portuguese sidewalk, then head to Avenida da Liberdade where you will find the best local and international shops, all the latest designers and premium brands.
