With chef Miguel Rocha Vieira in charge of the kitchen, the new Anfíbio restaurant has been open since the 24th of April. Located in the renovated Doca da Marinha, opposite the Tejo River, it is announced as the “new food ecosystem” of Lisbon and promises to change the riverfront next to the Campo das Cebolas area.
With a terrace overlooking the river and modern and luxurious decor, its menu is full of a sense of humor. A project by architect Carrilho da Graça, the Anfíbio marks the return of chef Miguel Rocha Vieira to Portugal, after a few years living in Hungary, where he won two Michelin stars.
With 130 seats and an open kitchen, visible even from the street, with the intention of arousing the curiosity of passers-by, as if to make the team shine, this is the last phase of a complex that includes three kiosks, named after the works of artist Julião Sarmento. Located in the renovated Doca da Marinha, next to Terreiro do Paço, with a concession in charge of the Leanman group, its gastronomic offer is diversified, with primacy for fish.
Open from Monday to Sunday for lunch and dinner, the space that advertises itself on social media as the “new food ecosystem” in the city arrives with humor and a certain touch of irony, starting with the names of the dishes created by the chef, who was born in Cascais. So, for starters, we come across “Like a Caesar, but with lobster”, a Caesar salad with Atlantic lobster. Meat lovers will also find true delights here and those who opt for vegetarian can find delicious options, with emphasis on fire-roasted aubergine, yogurt, mint, and Ahmed’s naan.
As “what is sweet never tastes bitter”, as the Anfíbio menu says, the meal culminates with sweets such as “Let’s break the whole pavlova!”
The Anfíbio restaurant is open from Monday to Sunday, from 12:00 to 15:00 and from 19:00 to 23:00.
