Book ahead for any chance of a table on the open verandah at Faz Figura, where the romantic views spill over the Tagus Estuary and out towards the far south bank. The windows are left open in summer, but even during the chillier winter months the mood is light and airy thanks to a fresh and contemporary interior design. Highly regarded for its creative Portuguese-Mediterranean gastronomy, where specialities like cataplana dishes and picanha (steak grilled over an open fire) attract local patronage, stylish Faz Figura is also celebrated for its delicious choice of desserts (try the fig and carob pies) and arm-long wine lists. The restaurant's wine bar, meanwhile, delights with its extraordinary selection of near-50 Portuguese labels.
- Best for Romantic Dining Because: The candlelit tables set across the terrace at Faz Figura are quieter and enhance the wonderfully romantic views of the river.
- Best for Restaurants near Cruise Port Because: The restaurant is not far from Santa Apolonia but it's even nearer to Alfama, a neighbourhood definitely worth visiting after dinner.
- Best for Alfama/Graça's Best Restaurants Because: A fixture on Lisbon's restaurant scene for over 35 years, award-winning Faz Figura is noted for consistent high quality.
