Bank card, Cash
A modern version of the typical ready-to-eat portuguese restaurants, with an attractive decoration and delicious home cooked meals, “Eleva-me” (the portuguese word for “lift me up”) was born from the devotion of four friends and is conquering the residents of Arroios.
The place has a young, pleasant vibe with very nice background music. It’s perfect for those who live nearby and want to grab something to eat at home or eat something fast and cheap. On the menu there is a different main dish everyday - you can consult the monthly calendar on facebook - and three main dishes that are always available: chicken gratin with vegetables and yogurt sauce; meatballs and "Bacalhau à Gomes de Sá", codfish with potato and boiled eggs, doused in olive oil and parsley.
On Fridays, the dish of the day is vegetarian and may vary from couscous with vegetables (vegan), veggie lasagna (contains cheese) or vegetables gratin (contain dairy products), for example. During the other days of the week, those who choose a vegetarian diet can order soup, with 100% vegetables, like beetroot, carrot, pumpkin, spinach, etc, for only 1,50€.
The main dish costs 3,95€ but for 5,30€ you can have the complete menu that includes soup, the main dish and a drink. The restaurant has 25 seated places and is available to organize all kinds of events, including group dinners from 11€ (with all-you-can-drink option) or catering service. All in all, it’s a modern place, with unbeatable prices for those who are craving a fast home cooked meal and don’t have the time or will to cook!
