Tasty seafood served with scenic views is the specialty of this waterfront diner. Set on the esplanade at Belém overlooking the river, the rather grand sounding Lisbon Navy Club restaurant is, in fact, a humble, no fuss eatery popular with locals who appreciate inexpensive food plated up with bonhomie in a great location. The menu features a range of tempting starters including gazpacho and a shrimp soup textured with cream. Cod, sea bream and tuna are among the main fish dishes, accompanied by boiled potato and garnished with a crispy green salad. The meat selection is modest but well presented. Diners can round off a meal with fresh fruit or a choice of traditional desserts. The restaurant is divided between interior salons (the tables upstairs set at the windows offer the best views) and an outside terrace, which has more of an al fresco café ambiance.
- Waterfront Dining: "It's advisable to arrive early at weekends when family groups tend to snap up the best tables."
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: Restaurante do Clube Naval de Lisboa exudes a wonderfully unpretentious atmosphere heightened by a local laidback vibe.
