Romantic dining in Lisbon indulges all the senses. Sharing a special occasion with a loved one is always a treat and is best savored over wonderful food in an intimate restaurant. Fortunately, the Portuguese capital is celebrated for its variety of snug, discreet eateries. Housed within the confines of a 15th-century palace is Leopold, a minimalist and contemporary styled venue that offers just 22 places. If you appreciate a fine castle view with dinner, head to Lumni. This is one of the city’s newest fine-dining venues. As Salgadeiras in Chiado is noted for its typical décor, where diners can enjoy fine regional cuisine under the arches of a refurbished bakery. Eating at A Travessa means appreciating one of the city’s historic landmarks, housed as it is in a former convent building. Opulent décor greets diners at swanky Valle Flôr, housed in a grand hotel fashioned from a beautiful palace located west of the city centre. This is a place to dress up for! Another eatery offering dinner with a view is the swish Panorama Restaurant & Bar, perched at the top of Lisbon’s tallest hotel. The nighttime panorama is quite breathtaking! Listening to the haunting strains of fado is a Lisbon highlight and certainly one of the most romantic things you can do in the city. Senhor Vinho in the Lapa district is highly regarded for its music shows, performed between courses in hushed surroundings. Hidden away from the crowds is Estórias na Casa da Comida, which exudes an intimate homestyle atmosphere and features a lovely terrace. For more romantic views, this time of the river, you’ll appreciate Faz Figura. The balcony tables are particularly intimate. And for romance personified, book ahead for a terrace table at enchanting Tágide.
