Lunch in Lisbon can be a memorable experience. With so many restaurants in different locations to choose from, where do you decide on a place to eat? One of the most authentic lunchtime dining experiences can be enjoyed at Mercearia do Século, a hideaway deli-bistro near Principe Real where the homemade food is served with local bonhomie. Alternatively, if you’re staying in the Saldanha neighbourhood head up to Terraço do Marques for a bite to eat with a city skyline view. If on the other hand you appreciate a river view with your order, grab a terrace table at Restaurante Espaço Espelho d’Agua, located on the Belém waterfront. After exploring the city’s Chiado district why not drop by Pizzaria Lisboa for a taste of Italy? Also in the vicinity is the charming Royale Café. For those staying in and around the Alcântara district there’s the trendy LX Factory to discover and where you’ll find the offbeat Cantina LX. Back in the city meanwhile is the popular Floresta do Salitre, located on a side street off Avenida da Liberdade. Sightseeing is all part of the Lisbon experience and if after taking in the city’s castle you fancy eating in the Castelo district, opt for Chapitô à Mesa: the food’s delicious and the downtown views spectacular! Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhood, Alfama, is a fantastic to discover, but you can work up quite an appetite while doing so. In that case pause at the homely Bistrô & Brechó Gato Pardo, a tiny restaurant that resembles an old-fashioned front room and where cats are adored. And for another lunch option with fabulous views, bag a table on the esplanade at Portas do Sol and chill out in languid comfort.
