In Lisbon, choosing to eat at waterfront restaurants means visitors can dine at some of the city’s best-known eateries by the river or near the ocean. Along with great food – one of these places to eat shines under a Michelin star – diners can also digest spectacular views such as those afforded from Amarra Ó Tejo situated on an elevated position on the south bank of the River Tagus. Lower down almost on the beach is the lovely Ponte Final with its outside tables set on an old jetty. Meanwhile, back on the opposite bank on the city’s riverfront there are plenty of restaurants combining equally pleasing panoramas with excellent cuisine, venues like Station, sited near Cais do Sodre. Further west at Belém, funky café-restaurant Margem shares the honours with nearby Darwin’s Café. It’s also in Belém where you can savour superb Michelin gastronomy at Feitoria Restaurant & Wine Bar. Meals are served with a pleasing waterfront perspective. Back towards Lisbon is Doca Peixe, a noted seafood restaurant overlooking the marina at Alcântara. Further still towards the city centre is Portugalia, which sits on the esplanade and a favourite with locals. On the other side of the Portuguese capital on the eastern riverbank is trendy Bica do Sapato, a fine-dining spot part-owned by Hollywood actor John Malkovich. And back in Belém is the remarkable Espaço Espelho d’Agua, housed in a beautiful 1940s-era modernist building.
