Standing right on the dock at the Santa Apolónia cruise port, this modern and funky venue has a well-known investor behind it, Hollywood actor John Malkovich, who even pops in unannounced on occasion. The menu here is international but also celebrated Portuguese culinary tradition with dishes like braised turbot with spinach and clams garnished with coriander. Needless to say, the wine list complements the excellent choice of gastronomy. Upstairs, a minimalist sushi bar serves excellent sashimi, tempura, kushiyaki and other Japanese delights. For a less formal experience, the riverside bar offers a lighter menu (and wonderful views) and is especially popular at lunchtime.
- Best for Waterfront Dining Because: One of the city's premier fine-dining spots, Bica do Sapato's allure is the varied menu choice and wonderful waterfront views from the restaurant's picture windows.
- Best for Restaurants near Cruise Port Because: Its A-list connections, celebrity flavour and stylish decor belies its dockside setting.
