Tea time: at Darwin’s, Lisbon

 

A restaurant and a tea house, Darwin’s is a lovely space for lounging or enjoying good food. But what I most love about it is the atmosphere itself and the view. The space is filled with beautiful details about Darwin’s discoveries, thoughts and overall life: butterflies scattered around, walls full of books, quotations written on the walls, sculptures of animals, fish in brilliant colours and textured woods. To top it off, there is a huge glass panelled wall that opens up towards the river. So if you are there for a late tea time, you get to sea the sunset fall.

Inspired by the restaurant, here is a quote by Darwin which is just as actual and true today:

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
