Chic-Nic Pestana Palace Lisbon

It was just by chance that I read about a Picnic at Pestana Palace Lisbon while I was still enjoying the beach in Algarve, luckily enough I found it just in time to book it for the week we would stay in Lisbon.

We never stayed at the Pestana Palace (will definitely try it next time we are in Lisbon) but I heard about its beauty and of course this was the perfect chance to have a first look around, also the idea of a picnic in a Palace delighted both Suri and I so of course it couldn’t be missed.

The called Chic-Nic was held at Casa do Lago (Lake House) in one of its lush gardens that surrounds it, as soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed and guided to our picnic blanket with our basket and some food that was ready for us, then the concept was explained and a welcome drink was offered us.

A variety of food including sushi, saladas, BBQ, carpaccio, ceviches, desserts, etc. was presented on a buffet basis at the Lake House to be then taken back to our picnic blanket.

We absolutely loved the experience and although unfortunately we won’t be back to Portugal this summer I hope they continue this fabulous concept next year.

I have to admit we don’t go to Portugal as often as we would like to but when we do there’s one thing that I always make sure we do, having a delicious brunch in Lisbon!

Below are my two favourites so far ;).

Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

I wrote a more extended blog post on my old blog when I first tried their brunch, you can read it here, and one year later I have to reference it again as we are addicted to it. Last time we’ve been there (December 2015) we invited our parents to go with us and they loved it as much as we do.

From the food variety and quality to the excellent staff everything is carefully though and prepared to make sure guests have a wonderful time there. The room setting is beautiful and the atmosphere is elegant and classy but at the same time very friendly and relaxed.

Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

The Ritz Sunday Brunch concept is carefully designed to include and welcome families with kids. Included in the brunch concept there’s what’s called Ritzlandia, kids from 4 to 14 years old can enjoy this space and play with other kids as well as Ritz staff who are there to take care and supervise them allowing parents to enjoy their time without having to worry about their children’s safety and at the same time make sure kids also enjoy their experience.  It’s a spacious room full of toys and activities to entertain kids, as always Suri was greeted by very friendly staff that made sure she would have a very good time, and she definitely did!

In Lisbon or travelling soon? Don’t miss this fabulous brunch!

Museu do Oriente

Before we travelled to Portugal I started noticing this new Brunch concept a lot on Instagram and as the images and comments were fantastic I had to give it a go.

What a nice surprise we had. We invited some friends with two girls as well and tried the 12:30pm session (there’s another one at 2:30pm).

The views over Rio Tejo are beautiful and relaxing, the room’s atmosphere is nice and relaxed and the food stand was to die for, yummy! There was even a space for kids with an entertainer, girls loved it.
