Restaurant & bar LESS Baixa Lisbon: stunning city views, lounge chairs & Gourmet Burger

Years ago I discovered a cafe on the 8th floor of a huge department store in Lisbon : good coffee (bica), a pastel de nata .. and stunning city views!

Restaurant & bar LESS in Lisbon: this view will never be boring! 🙂

Nine months ago restaurant & bar LESS was opened, on the 8th floor of department store Pollux (9 floors, 5.000 m2), founded in 1936, offering typical Portuguese luxury items for home decoration and household goods.

The terrace, offering views of the legendary Santa Justa lift and the ruins of the Convento do Carmo, (Carmo Convent) used to have a small cafe with plastic tables (a hidden gem..)
.
Basic snacks, soups and coffees were served nearby products for sale in the store such as plastic flowers, garden chairs and camping tables.

In September 2017 the entire 8th floor of the department store was transformed into a modern casual dining space serving delicious food (Chef: Miguel Castro Silva) .

Meals are served inside and also outside on the terrace.

‘Are you being served?’
 .
BESIDES: When I entered the Pollux department store for the first time, around 16 years ago, the old-fashioned atmosphere and the (good) hierarchical service-model reminded me a little bit of the legendary British sitcom  “Are you being served?’ 😉 (YouTube), broadcasted between 1972 and 1985.
