Set in the refurbished premises of a former salt warehouse, this dock front restaurant is named after an island located off the northern coast of Mozambique. The exotic destination has inspired the menu, which showcases tangy and spicy Mozambique specialties but also pays homage to the strong cultural links to Portugal. As you'd expect, fish and seafood feature widely, with dishes like tender octopus fillet served with tasty bean and coriander rice, and grilled tiger prawns bathed in Piri Piri sauce typical of the cuisine on offer. The African influence extends to meats, with "Zambeziana's" roasted chicken, an emblematic plate and a popular autumn dining choice.
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: An imaginative and modern makeover of an early 20th-century waterfront warehouse and a creative Portuguese-African menu affords Ibo a funky but traditional vibe.
- Recommended as Best Value Because: Shellfish is pricy but the quality of IBO's menu is such that what you're also purchasing is one of Lisbon's most memorable seafood experiences.
