Lost in a Lisbon labyrinth?  Had enough bacalhau, fado and calcada?   Fear not.  Follow a crooked street in the Alfama District to a little piece of Asian paradise, the Kuta Bar.  Here you escape city life and chillout with your friends in total Zen comfort.

The bar is named for Kuta Beach, a popular hot spot in southern Bali.  There, spectacular sunsets are the precursor to active nightlife.  Here, colors of the sunset provide a backdrop to an Indonesian-style lounge that offers signature cocktails and sushi to guests in a relaxing, but fashionable, atmosphere.

Indonesian/French/Portuguese fusion cuisine is served up here.  Very reasonable fixed-price menus offer everything from mushroom rolls and wasabi salmon tar tare, to  grain-encrusted dourado filets to Chinese noodles with shrimp.  Wednesday night is Sushi Night (20€ per person).  On Sundays, a fabulous brunch is available…but don’t forget to ask about the free massage.

Raul Perez in the brainchild behind Kuta Bar.  He is French of Portuguese descent whose CV includes a stint at Paris’ popular Buddha Bar.  He has decorated the two-level with furnishings directly from Indonesia.  Comfy armchairs and sofas are surrounded by fountains and lava stone statues.  Flowers abound and incense fills the air.
