Taste the Unique.

TRADITIONAL, FRESH AND BOLD

Portugal’s history is full of discoveries. And it’s no secret that most of them came directly to our kitchens. New flavours, unknown ingredients and wonderful recipes which enriched our cuisine and made it like it is today: deliciously irresistible.

Our restaurant, Criatura, will lead you on a journey through the origins of fusion cuisine where “sharing” is the word that will allow fraternization at the table – a popular tradition in Latin countries – so you can have the chance to taste a greater number of dishes and also enjoy those moments with the ones you love. We’re sure new flavours will bring new friends all around you.

Our table is your table

Food, friends and long talks are some of the things that make our mealtimes so unique. Gather some friends around a large table, order different dishes, pair them with wonderful wines and share. Share the stories, share the flavours, share the experience of being together. Appreciate all that our kitchen and city have to offer you and feel welcome and happy.

Like a cellar

Portuguese wines are well-known for their strong character and rich flavours. That’s why we dedicated a long time choosing you some of the best bottles that will take you through Portugal’s vines and heritage in just one glass. If you're eager for a long journey don't miss our great world selection. Enjoy a glass or two.

Welcome to our neighbourhood

The food is great but so is the vibe that surrounds Criatura. We are proud to say that we have the best of the neighbourhoods. Follow us and nearby you can enjoy the unique view of Miradouro de Santa Catarina, walk up and down the streets of Bairro Alto and Bica, enjoy some drinks, and dance.

Senses all around you.

INTIMATE, EXQUISITE AND UNFORGETTABLE

Delicious food is like heaven in your mouth. And to reach it you just have to come to our top floor where you’ll find Suba, our Gastro Bar.

Feel very welcome here, our table is always ready to surprise your senses with some simple recipes, new creations or the best of these two worlds. Especially at lunchtime, our Chef prepares tasty Portuguese Cuisine with a contemporary twist made from fresh and local ingredients. Because we like to please more than just your palate all is served with a wonderful view over the Tagus River. As you can see, heaven is really all around you.

Creative Food? Yes, please.

Suba is the kind of place that everybody loves. Imaginative food, sophisticated flavours, good service and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Here the main pleasures come in small dishes so you can try one and another and repeat. Have a seat, order the food and get what you deserve: the best.

The best things in life come in pairs.

It sounds like a promise and it is. Our food is good on its own but goes better with a nice drink. Pair your food choices with a wonderful Portuguese red or white wine or a french Pinot Noir if you like to take it seriously. But if you're feeling bold and want something different try to have your dish with an exclusive cocktail.

Table with a view

When you have one of the best views of Lisbon it's a privilege, but a great dilemma will arrive sooner or later: staring at the hills, the river and the city or gazing at the dishes conceived by our Chef? Don't worry, at Suba we offer you a little advice as starters: don’t choose and let those two pleasures complement each other.
