Restaurant POLLUX Terrace Lisbon: scenic city views, shopping mall rooftop & delicious lunch

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

‘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?’¬†ūüėČ (YouTube), broadcasted between 1972 and 1985.
