The well-respected national chain of Portugalia restaurants and beer halls includes this hugely popular waterfront venue located near Cais do Sodre The restaurant specialises in catering for families, large groups and special occasions – birthdays, weddings etc – and is often busy even during the day. Highly regarded for its seafood choice including crab, lobster and grilled tiger prawn (which, it has to be said, can be a bit pricy) the menu also stands out for its succulent steaks including a great Portuguese standby, bitoque (fried beefsteak topped with fried egg with chips and garnished with salad). The range of beers is excellent and the wine list is of an equally high calibre.
- Best for Group Friendly Because: The waterfront setting and lovely river views enhance any meal at this popular restaurant, where the menu errs towards traditional Portuguese fare.
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: Portugália's position along the promenade overlooking the river allows for pleasant waterfront views and well as a chance to dine with the locals.
- Best for Family Friendly Because: A recognised name throughout the country, Portugalia restaurants are not the cheapest places to eat, but is worth visiting for great cooking and excellent service.
- Best for Late Night Because: Portugália offers superb riverside views from window tables as well as from those set on the terrace.
