Fine dining in Lisbon means eating in some of the city’s most alluring restaurants, anything from funky waterfront eateries to establishments housed in noble and historic buildings. Cuisine ranges from traditional Portuguese to contemporary international, with plenty of fusion ideas combining a world of tastes. Alma, in Chiado, epitomises the classic fine dining venue, housed as it is in an historic building where a 1-star Michelin menu tempts the palate. At Tabik on Avenida da Liberdade the menu celebrates Portuguese and southern Mediterranean cuisine served in funky surroundings. At Feitoria Restaurants & Wine Bar, the seasonal menu has won a nod from Michelin, and the riverside location only adds to its allure. Seafood is a speciality in Portugal, and at Gambrinus the choice extends to splendid caviar options. The privilege of dining at Travessa is the setting, a former 17th-century convent building that’s as appealing as the menu. For a serious gourmet treat, book a table at Belcanto, currently the only 2-star Michelin restaurant in the Portuguese capital. Meanwhile, the bonus of dining at Tágide in Chiado is that the menu is heightened by fabulous views over the river and the city below. Also in Chiado is Largo, another Lisbon fine dining venue that’s located in an historic former convent. A homely but stylish atmosphere is exuded at Estórias na Casa da Comida while the ambiance at the lofty Panorama Restaurant & Bar is enhanced by the best views of the capital from any restaurant in the city.
