The best restaurants in Lisbon include Michelin star gourmet hot spots, fine dining venues and more humble but equally appealing side street eateries. Menus showcase Portuguese and international cuisine while the wine lists highlight fabulous national and international wines. All are noted for their good food, great location and unique character. Up in Principe Real, A Cevicheria prepares arguably the tastiest ceviche in town, and the giant foam octopus suspended from the restaurant ceiling adds to the allure of this hip little eatery. Another venue noted for its seafood is the celebrated Casa do Bacalhau. For something more humble but no less appetizing, squeeze into A Provinciana for tasty homemade fare. Over in Alcântara at the bohemia-soaked LX factory, A Praça is noted for its Italian-Portuguese dishes and eye-catching retro-vintage décor. In complete contrast, stylish Michelin-starred Eleven, sitting at the top of the city’s Parque Eduardo VII, offers a culinary experience in deliciously modern and minimalist surroundings. Lisbon’s best restaurant choice also extends to Mesón Andaluz, a delightful Spanish-style tapas bar situated near the city’s Cais do Sodré area. Over in the leafy Graça neighbourhood meanwhile, O Piteú da Graça tempts the palate with traditional Portuguese gastronomy and plenty of bonhomie. At Tágide in the elegant Chiado district, dinner is heightened by romantic views over downtown Lisbon, while at Madragoa Café the cuisine is often served with a touch of fado. And for a suitably sophisticated evening out, book well ahead for Alma, another one of Lisbon’s Michelin-starred establishments.
