A cosy tavern with dishes inspired by Iberian cuisine, Adega (as it’s known to regulars) combines good food, a great atmosphere and a fine wine list. The success of this branch of the restaurant has inspired restaurateur Felipe ‘Ipe’ Moraes to open up a second Adega Santiago. Seafood lovers should go for the polvo à lagareira (chargrilled octopus) – with a side of buttered vegetables, which makes a simple but mouth-watering duo. More expensive fish dishes, such as bacalhoada na lenha (oven-baked salt cod with potato, onion, peppers, olives and eggs) at R$145, are designed to serve two.
