Tacos, tequila, mezcal and Latin cocktails are served with love at this funky, unfussy eatery.
There’s an increasing trend in Lisbon nowadays for restaurants to serve cocktails with meals, and take their cocktail offer seriously. But you don’t need to eat to enjoy a drink at this funked-up taqueria, with its selection of 20-odd mezcals as well as scores of tequilas.
Dining dominates the utilitarian interior with its polished concrete floors, but there’s space to perch at the bar for a bevvy or two. While Margaritas, both mezcal and tequila, feature heavily on the extensive menu, alongside new classics like the Oaxaca Old-Fashioned, there’s plenty of creativity left for in-house mixes. Drinks are balanced and well-made, while the agave-led menu merits further exploration.
