Enjoy a true taste of Portugal at authentic neighbourhood eatery, Lana Lusa. Found at Wasl 51, the cosy restaurant has a warm, inviting vibe, and a friendly team ready to transport you to old Southern Europe with each dish.

Made for sharing and filled with Mediterranean memory, Lana Lusa’s menu stands out for a number of reasons. Not only is it inspired by Portuguese roots, the dishes are packed full of flavour, igniting a unique experience you’ll cherish.

Bring friends, loved ones, or event colleagues for a relaxed meal, or just pull up a seat at the bar for a coffee and a pastry. Lana Lusa’s focus is on what goes in rather than what is taken out as a response to ‘uber-healthy’ and ‘free-from’ cafes around the city.
