The latest restaurant project from Wallpaper*-favourite Buck.Studio channels mod-Portuguese chic by way of a canal-side perch in Wrocław.

Set on the ground floor of a block of luxury apartments, Martim’s Portuguese seafood menu is paired with an interior cloaked in rust reds, deep sea-green and beige cork, the latter handsomely cast onto the front-of-the-house bar and wine cabinets.

Half-height mirrors above the banquettes bounce light streaming in through the full-length windows, whilst a perforated sloping ceiling performs double duty as a sound dampener.

From an open kitchen, head chef Nuno Matos orchestrates petiscos of bacalao nuzzling potatoes, marinated onions and olives, tempura green beans, and seafood cooked in a cataplana, a clip-closed copper pot – an ensemble that’s ably paired with a comprehensive wine list of Portuguese vintages, and an Old World view across the Odra river at the local university.
