Os irmãos Joaquim e António Machaz, abriram em 1988 o restaurante Vela Latina. Agora, a Confraria tem 50% do restaurante, aliando a comida simples portuguesa à gastronomia japonesa e peruana do novo espaço, o Nikkei. A decoração é arrojada, tipo Arca de Noé, e foi recentemente remodelada, tendo alguns detalhes tropicais. Por sua vez, as duas esplanadas convidam a que faça uma refeição ao ar livre.

O Chef Benjamim Vilaça, está à frente da cozinha desde o início, mantendo quase intacta a carta. Benjamim tem uma vasta experiência, e isso é reconhecido na boa cozinha e pratos de assinatura que confeciona no restaurante Vela Latina. Introduziu recentemente um novo menu, onde conjuga os pratos clássicos da casa com algumas novidades.

INSIDER tip

Para aperitivos, experimente uma ventresca de atum em salada ou um camarão al ajillo e coentros. Siga para o bacalhau com migas de pão milho ou o tornedó com arroz oriental. Para finalizar, adoce o paladar com uma tarte de maçã com gelado de baunilha.

    Nice place, excellent food and great location. I recommend this restaurant for sure. The personal was so efficient and respectful. I think this one of the best places in Belem and is just across the street from famous Pasteles do Belem, Nata pastries.

    The food was very, very good. The service correct and swift. The decoration and surroundings of this restaurant are better appreciated with daylight mainly because of the view, but it gets cozy at dinner.

    My wife and I are here a couple of times per month, sometimes just the two, sometimes with more family members. It is always a great experience. Since they remodeled, there have been more customere. That is something we approve of because now more people are finding it the great plave it has always been.

About the restaurant

Decoração inspirada em motivos náuticos, num local que apresenta uma cozinha criteriosa, com realce para os peixes e mariscos. Situado nas imediações da Torre de Belém, o Vela Latina está ancorado na Doca do Bom Sucesso, bem junto do Tejo, sendo considerado um dos melhores restaurantes da cidade, com um serviço requintado e de qualidade num ambiente calmo e seleccionado.

A decoração, fazendo jus ao nome, baseia-se em motivos náuticos e a cozinha divide-se entre a culinária tradicional portuguesa e a internacional.

Mesmo ao lado, tem os extensos relvados, o rio e a Torre, bons motivos para um passeio, um jogo de bola com as crianças ou a leitura descansada de um bom livro à sombra das árvores.
