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.
- Bairro Alto/Principe Real's Best Restaurants: "For a splurge, opt for the tasting menu - six glorious dishes personally recommended by Chef Kiko."
- Best for Bairro Alto/Principe Real's Best Restaurants Because: One of the few restaurants in the Portuguese capital that prepares and serves authentic ceviche.
