Chef de cuisine, “pulso firme” (firm hand) in traditional Portuguese cuisine, and genius at recreating our gastronomy – that’s how Marlene Vieira could be summed up in a few words. The connection to the kitchen started early and at the moment carries 30 years of experience in the area and is always connected, to what is best in Portuguese cuisine.
A restaurant that is both timeless and modern.
The new restaurant that Marlene Vieira opened at the Lisbon Cruise Terminal is clear in its approach and execution. Here we have the reflection of a Portuguese table full of gastronomic memories, a reflection of her learning, in a search for modern Portuguese cuisine.
“Marlene, it’s my story. Is the reflection of my memories and convictions, a mixture of tradition and innovation.”
“It is the union of my knowledge with the desire to provide memorable experiences. In this refined space I serve a gastronomic journey which is a reflection of my apprenticeship searching for a modern Portuguese cuisine with sustainability and seasonality concerns.
Marlene is an irreverent, vibrant, and rebellious space with a strong attraction to newness. It is a signature cuisine in which the technical approach makes the ingredients shine in their essence.
This is a unique experience that represents simple acts such as eating and gathering.”
