Dining room with a view
If unusual settings are your thing, then look no further than ‘the Lagoon’. In a moment of architectural inspiration, what was once the little-used grandstand and sweaty headquarters of the Lagoa Rowing Club has been remixed to create an unusual high-end eating, drinking and dancing destination comprising five restaurants, a live music venue and cinema under one roof. The outdoor terrace, meanwhile, purrs whatever the weather, with its retractable roof and sides and, of course, that view. And though the restaurants should, in theory, do battle for customers’ attention, instead they seem to operate with the anything-goes harmony their location bestows upon them, so that on the shared terrace, any one of the five outlets’ waiters will cheerfully sidle over to deliver their respective menus. The best of the pack, Quadrifoglio Caffé, does Italian in fine style.
