The best restaurants in Lisbon include Michelin star gourmet hot spots, fine dining venues and more humble but equally appealing side street eateries. Menus showcase Portuguese and international cuisine, and the wine lists highlight fabulous national and international wines. All are noted for their good food, great location and unique character. Up in Principe Real, A Cevicheria serves seriously appetizing fish and seafood, and there’s an octopus suspended from the restaurant ceiling! At the bohemia-soaked LX factory, A Praça is noted for its Italian-Portuguese dishes, and eye-catching retro-vintage décor. In complete contrast, stylish Michelin-starred Eleven, sitting at the top of the city’s Parque Eduardo VII, offers a culinary experience is deliciously modern and minimalist surroundings. Over in the leafy Graça neighbourhood, O Piteú da Graça tempts the palate with traditional Portuguese gastronomy and plenty of bonhomie. At Fortaleza do Guincho near Cascais on Portugal’s west coast, the excellent Michelin gastronomy is matched by superb Atlantic Ocean views and a genuine sense of occasion. Similarly, at Tágide in the elegant Chiado district, dinner is heightened by romantic views over downtown Lisbon. Tucked away in Santos meanwhile is Madragoa Cafe where the traditional Portuguese cooking is complemented by occasional fado. Back in Chiado, smart U Chiado offers a menu of contemporary cuisine at exceptional value for money. Lisbon’s best restaurant choice also extends to Mesón Andaluz, a delightful Spanish-style tapas bar situated near the city’s Cais do Sodré area. And in Bairro Alto Antigo de I Maio is deserving of its rustic appeal and tasty homemade fare.
