Casa Momus

Top choice mediterranean in Santa Teresa & Lapa

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 a Moroccan lamb kafta (spiced meat patty) with tabbouleh and yogurt sauce, then feast on oxtail risotto with watercress, seared tuna with couscous, grilled beef tenderloin, 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.
