LISBON RESTAURANTS

The best wining and dining in the city


Lisbon boasts a wide range of restaurants to suit most tastes and budgets, from traditional Portuguese to international cuisine.

Many have striking interiors such as Tavares, Casa do Alentejo, and Cervejaria Trindade, others have stylish contemporary décor as is the case with the trendy Bica do Sapato and Alcântara Café.

And in a city known for its hilltop vistas, many offer superb views as you eat, like Chapitô, Casa do Leão, Tágide, and Via Graça. And don't forget that Lisbon also has some of the best-value eateries of any European city along with sophisticated, more expensive restaurants such as Eleven. You may also want to consider dining at the restaurants of the city's top chefs.

The Bairro Alto district has the biggest cluster of good restaurants (Pap'Açorda and 100 Maneiras are two of the best in the city for Portuguese cuisine and Casa Nostra is a good choice for Italian), while Docas and Parque das Nações offer some international options for the more unadventurous palates.

Vegetarians have some excellent choices, including Jardim dos Sentidos with its pleasant garden, and Terra offering varied dishes that are also excellent selections for vegans.

Generally speaking, a three-course meal with wine and appetizers costs around 20 euros per person, but so that you are able to better control your budget, our restaurant listings give an approximation of the cost of a 3-course meal at each restaurant.

Twice-yearly, Lisbon hosts the Lisbon Restaurant Week, giving locals and visitors alike the chance to experience fine dining for a fine price and a fine cause! Dinner at the capital's top restaurants costs just 20 euros per person, with 1 euro going to charitable organizations.

Bom apetite!

Restaurant TIPS

Where to look for restaurants: For the widest variety of restaurants head to the Bairro Alto district; for the best seafood walk down Rua das Portas de Santo Antão downtown; if you're looking for international cuisine you're familiar with, go to Docas or the Parque Das Nações district. On Comercio Square you'll find several options offering a good mix of local and international cuisine with tables on the terrace with river views.

Good fast food: Short on time but want something besides McDonald's and the typical fast food? Head to the shopping malls, many of which offer fast food for the health-conscious. Try Go Natural and Vitaminas (this last one is also found on the busy Rua Garrett in Chiado and on Restauradores Square). Both offer varied salads and 100% fruit juices, and in the case of Go Natural, even sushi and soup.

FYI: You are charged for anything you eat at a restaurant, so don't assume that the starters of cheese, spreads, olives, and bread that you are presented with when you sit down are free.

Time to eat: Most Portuguese dine at around 8:30 or 9PM, so to guarantee a table at the restaurant of your choice, arrive early or reserve in advance.
