Over the past two weeks, I was in Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona and found the food in all locales fantastic overall. However, few restaurants in particular rose above the extremely high standards I developed after the first week of the trip. eleBe, however, was perhaps the most notable of such rare establishments. The waiter who helped us made me finally understand why his profession is respected in Europe; his help in choosing wine and food suited to our taste and budget was terrific. The location, although slightly outside of the city center, is a virtue in itself as it is sheltered from the inflated prices and disappointing food to be found in more touristed areas by a neighborhood that struck me as lively, Portuguese, and still quite pleasant to walk through. And the food, well, I'd have to be a more accomplished critic or at least a more creative writer to sufficiently describe how good it was. But I can say that you should go here if you want a terrific meal that you'll remember and that you'll swear should've costed about twice what you'll end up paying.
