Group friendly restaurants in Lisbon are ideal for large parties of diners. Purposely designed to cater for groups, or able to adapt their seating arrangements accordingly, a lot of these places to eat offer special group menus at set prices. A stylish and upmarket option is Páteo, a cleverly conceived restaurant space designed to resemble a typical Lisbon patio space. Vintage Café Império is straight out of the 1950s and its authentic atmosphere is a big hit with nostalgic locals. Another very popular restaurants for groups is the beer-hall styled Cervejaria Trindade, in Chiado. Kais, a cavernous restaurant on the riverfront near Cais do Sodré, is an excellent venue for large groups and special party nights. Similarly Portugália, set further along the riverbank, is adequately designed to receive diners en masse. Across the avenue is Popolo, which also has plenty of seating - expect a young, modish vibe! Out of the city in Benfica is David da Buraca, a traditional eatery furnished with long tables to accommodate hungry locals and in-the-know visitors. Alternatively, the more central Casa do Alentejo has a large, wonderfully decorated dining hall that meets the requirements of larger groups. Over in Alfama is Santa António de Alfama, a rustic themed eatery set over two floors where tables are also set on the pretty patio outside. And perched on steps overlooking downtown Lisbon is Café Buenos Aires with its wide terrace and castle views.
