Tapas, Delicacies and Vermouths




If, on one hand, unity makes strength, at Tapisco sharing enlivens the table. Based on this concept, Chef Henrique Sá Pessoa is inviting clients to discover this restaurant that combines the best Portuguese delicacies with Spanish tapas, now recreated à la Porto.

Initially inaugurated in Lisbon, the chef has now opened his second establishment at 165 on Rua Mouzinho da Silveira, Porto, a city also known as Invicta. Although the concept remains unaltered at this northern eatery, its menu also includes some the Porto’s most traditional dishes. Here, the motto is not sophisticated fine dining but, rather, emphasis on quality, attention to detail and flavour.

Iberian flavours in the Chef’s unique style, in a sophisticated and congenial atmosphere, at any time of day.



Henrique Sá Pessoa divides his life between Portugal and Spain… and the table too. The team at Tapisco Porto is under his direct control and ready to serve the finest fusion of Portuguese and Spanish flavours.

Henrique Sá Pessoa has always strived for greater knowledge, better technique and more experience at the best international restaurants: he worked at restaurant Evo of Chef Santi Santamaria, Michelin one star, in Barcelona (2007); at El Celler de Can Roca, Michelin 3 stars, 1st of the World's 50 Best Restaurants, in Girona (2015); and at Tippling Club, 23rd of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants, in Singapore (2014).

He joined the Multifood group at that time, where he began developing tailor made projects for the group, such as Cais da Pedra, facing the Tagus River, and its namesake restaurant at Mercado da Ribeira. Later, he joined Balcão that serves signature cuisine at Gourmet Experience, in El Corte Inglés, all located in Lisbon.

ALMA, in Chiado, opened in 2015 and, less than one year later, he received his first Michelin Star. As proof that the chef did not remain resting on his laurels, only a few months later, in 2017, he invited the public to discover Tapisco in Lisbon, followed in 2018 by Porto’s own Tapisco, his first project in Northern Portugal.

The 50 place settings at Tapisco await those who drop in at the restaurant, located on one of the main thoroughfares in the city. At the counter, with a direct view of the kitchen, there are 9 places, which are ideal for more curious diners.

vermouth bar

Inspired in neighbouring Spain, the vermouth culture has reached Porto. This vermouth bar serves many vermouth drinks, served either straight up or in signature cocktails, as an aperitif or at the table with the meal.

The Monarca, with gin, blackcurrant cream and red vermouth; the Príncipe, with gin, cucumber, peppermint and white vermouth; and the Majestade, made with rum, grand marnier, ginger beer and red vermouth, are certain to conquer the north.
