La Paparrucha has been around for quite some time now (since 1998 to be more precise)- maybe you’ve heard of it, like I had before trying, the legend of mouth watering food and a breathtaking view. Well, this week I bring you confirmation. I did my job as your trusted restaurant-advisor, bit the bullet (more like meat) and I come back ready to tell you it is as good as you’ve heard or, if you hadn’t, that you should had!
Full disclosure, the restaurant isn’t the most budget-friendly place in town. However, to help overcome this, they’ve come up with a pretty cool concept: a lunchtime buffet (just on weekdays), where you can get a taste for the real thing for the much more friendly amount of 12,5€. What’s more, if you make the house card, that becomes 10€ a pop.
The buffet includes an all-you-can-eat choice of starters, salads, soup, mains, sides and, of course, a choice of grilled meats. Also included are a drink, coffee and a table of desserts (I highly recommend the oreo mousse!). With no extra charge, you also get that lovely view of Lisbon, the perfect companion for such a nice meal.
If you want the full experience, you can also go for dinner or during the weekends, when the price tag might be a little higher (something like 35€ for a full meal) but you also get to try their most famous dishes, such as Sirloin on the Grill, Chorizo Steak or Steak’s Eye. Either way, it’s definitely an experience I hope you enjoy!
