This no-frills, family-run eatery wouldn't look out of place in the middle of the Portuguese countryside. The fact, then, that it's tucked away in the centre of Lisbon simply adds to its allure as one of the friendliest and most authentic rustic-style restaurants in the city (check out their collection of whacky wall clocks). Always frequented by local residents who swear by the hearty wholesome fare, table numbers are increasingly bolstered by in-the-know visitors who recognise a gastronomic gem when they see one (or when they are attracted by the delicious aromas swirling around the front door). The menu lists regional Portuguese cuisine – grilled meats and fish, accompanied by crunchy vegetables and boiled potatoes or chunky chips, perfectly fried. Order a dish of the day and a litre of wine for two and you'll still walk away with change from twenty euros. Yes, this little place is also excellent value for money!

- Best Restaurants: "If it's listed, order the grilled meat skewer – succulent wedges of different meats chargrilled to perfection."
- Recommended as Best Restaurants Because: Still managing to stay under the Lisbon restaurant radar, A Provinciana exudes a delightful countryside atmosphere and provincial charm.
