Bairro Alto/Principe Real's Best Restaurants
: One of the coolest places in Lisbon to sample ceviche, A Cevicheria has at its helm Chef Kiko Martins, who's authentic interpretation of this traditional South American dish has caught the imagination of the public as well as some of the city's most respected food critics. Preparation is deceptively simple, with raw fish diced into bite-sized pieces and marinated in citric juice, salt and various seasonings. As well as four different ceviches, the menu lists causa and quinoa-based dishes, gaspacho, croquette and "surf 'n' turf" sandwiches. There's no reservation policy, so all you can do is turn up early (or late) or else wait. If so, grab a beer, some wine or try a pisco sour cocktail and prop up one of the tall tables set outside on the pavement.

: Chef Kiko Martins has carved himself a niche with this stunningly understated restaurant, which specialises in ceviche – Peruvian seafood typically made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices. The creative Brazilian kitchen wizard effortlessly diversifies with dishes like duck confit rissole, or interesting fusions such as the causa of chicken and lobster. The eatery is minimalist in design, but the eye is drawn to an enormous sculpture of an octopus, crafted in sponge, that's suspended from the ceiling. In fact, everything about this place is artisan, and it's small wonder tables are always at a premium, whether for lunch or dinner.
