Essential is the name and apparently concept of this small restaurant at 176 Rua da Rosa in Bairro Alto.

A rush to find a good restaurant close to the hotel where we were staying and open at 3pm, luckily ended up at Ofício. An atypical “tasca” or tavern, as they like to characterize themselves, but which has nothing to do with a tasca, neither in the food nor in the atmosphere or service. In […]

Flying with Emirates – Dubai – Lisbon

Airport After the amazing flight in the A380 from Bangkok we arrived at Dubai’s Airport for a “simple” connection to our flight to Lisbon.
