Situated in the heart of Lisbon, Gambrinus is a reference point in Lisbon's Cuisine. Over the past 78 years, national and international personalities, artists and politicians have met to enjoy meeting places. The Restaurant has maintained a comfortable environment, with high quality products and service of excellence, since the remodelling done in 1964 by the architect Mauricio de Vasconcelos. The same artist was also responsible for the decoration.
