Casa Momus

One of the best and loveliest restaurants in Lapa, Casa Momus has a small, but well-executed menu of Mediterranean-influenced dishes. Start with prawn croquettes, fried polenta with spicy gorgonzola, or Moroccan lamb kafta (spiced meat patty) with tabbouleh and yogurt sauce; then feast on oxtail risotto with watercress, sesame-crusted tuna, pork tenderloin saltimbocca and other rich main courses.

Casa Momus is set in a beautifully decorated 19th-century building on a pedestrian-only stretch of Rua do Lavradio, with outdoor tables on the cobblestones.
