The restaurant opens at 7:30 p.m., and when we got there, a small crowd of diners had already gathered in anticipation of the excellent meal about to be unveiled. Terra's ambience is intimate (but not cramped -- there is plenty of seating),and their drinks list extensive. The restaurant's website includes a link to a vegetarian dictionary in several languages -- very convenient indeed!
After dinner, we headed over to a port-tasting cellar, where the three of us (we spent the evening with a musician/web designer friend of mine who currently resides in Lisbon) shared an assortment of affordable and "other" port, accompanied by a house cheese. I myself am not a big drinker, but I must say I enjoyed the diversity of flavours offered by the three different samples we had selected: The pricey port appealed to me more than the dry one or the 20-year-old one. (And if I knew what I was talking about when it comes to such delicacies, I would refer to them by their proper names, which I cannot for the life of me remember now!)
Some colleagues at work suggested I bring back a bottle of Port from my excursions for their consumption; our dinner friend noted that bottles of the stuff could be had at the local grocery store for a considerably more reasonable price than the wine cellar's offerings... perhaps we'll make a quick stop there tomorrow, in between the Belem Monastary ad the Lisbon Music Museum.
