The Stars Route is an annual gastronomic festival taking place across six Michelin-starred restaurants in Portugal and Spain. Lisbon’s contribution to this esteemed event is the city’s elegant ‘Eleven’, a luxurious restaurant situated on Lisbon’s highest summit within the Parque Eduardo VII. The festival brings some of the world’s best chefs to the hotel, working together to create unique menus for you to sample. The focus is on using ingredients and flavours from the local area to showcase the taste of Portugal. As well as enjoying cuisine prepared by the world’s most distinguished chefs, there’ll be plenty of musical entertainment as well as exclusive workshops where you can learn the chefs’ culinary secrets.
The Lisbon leg of the Stars Route takes place at the Michelin-starred ‘eleven’ in the Amália Rodrigues garden at the top of Parque Eduardo VII. The residency of top chef Joachim Koerper features a multi-course meal prepared by Joachim and his team of specialists. You can view the full programme of events at the official website.
