Vegetarian foodies in Lisbon...for 8 days.

We're going to be in Lisbon for 8 days (and then we'll have a couple of nights in Sintra). We're that sometimes unfortunate combination of vegetarian (no meat or fish, but diary is fine) and passionate about brilliant food. We've eaten in lots of fab place and are generally of the view that a holiday isn't a holiday without lots of tasting menus! I've been reading the suggestions on the board but am still not terribly clear on where we should be going. This is particularly the case as I usually think vegetarian restaurants are to be avoided as they can fall into the hippy / worthier than thou camp... There are a few comments that Portugal isn't terribly vegetarian friendly, but I am hoping that it won't turn out to quite as bad as this headline suggests. I'd be really grateful for suggestions. Certainly Restaurante 100 Maneiras has been mentioned several times to me as a good option and is therefore on the list. Also Tavares. I see Alma has been recommended, as has Quinta dos Frades to someone else asking a similar question - anyone with any recent experiences? But in any event that still leaves quite a lot of nights...!
