Popular restaurateur and chef Oliver da Costa (Guilty!, Olivier Avenida, Yakuza, Honra and Assador) is at it again. He has opened a new restaurant that can be considered the first restaurant of aged beef in Portugal. It’s K.O.B. by Olivier. The K.O.B. stands for “Knowledge of Beef” and the menu provides a vast range of red meat from all across the globe to taste and enjoy. K.O.B. is located at Rua do Salitre (in the former Pedro e o Lobo location).



Working with designer Ewa Kubik, Oliver’s use of heavy use of wood is a natural complement to the menu. Details of copper stand out against the teal background of the walls. Raspberry-toned couches add to the rich texture of the room.
