We found Portugal on the Presqu’île, head to rue des Quatre Chapeaux for a Portuguese treat. Former photographer, Vito is originally from Lisbon, and decided, with his partner Murielle, to open a restaurant in Lyon and to bring a bit of “home” to the capital of Gaul. On the menu, you will find plenty of nuggets that everyone loves when passing through Portugal: flambé chorizo, octopus salad, crunchy vegetables, mashed sweet potatoes, fried potatoes, pasteis de nata… At Cafe Lisboa, nothing is is French, not even the wine. When you pass the doors of the establishment, you take a little trip.
