Local Cusisine (seafood paradise)
Cervejaria Trindade Very good local food and very economical. Open for long hours.
Solar Dos Presuntos
Local food. A bit pricier than the other ones mentioned here, but very good food.
Local food. Book in advance. This is primarily turns out to be a shell food extravaganza and the first place any local recommends, as it’s a very popular seafood restaurant . The seafood is super fresh and some of the locals’ favorites are the Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and Grilled Tiger Prawns. The one thing you may not expect, but the locals highly recommend is the Steak Sandwich! We had a try and it was amazing!
Taberna da Rua das Flores
Local food. They do not take reservations, the lines can be long because it’s a small restaurant. But the wait is more than justified, with a constantly changing menu, makes this one loved by the locals.
Food with a View
Piazza di Mare
Nice ambience and views. Great for a romantic night out and some good Italian food.
Bica do Sapato
Good restaurant with a terrace. It has got a contemporary/fusion menu along with a sushi bar.
Very good pizza and with a great view of the sea.
The place to be for weekend breakfast/brunch. Again with a sea view.
Bar of Hotel do Chiado
Beautiful city views.
With a beautiful city-view for a lovely romantic dinner and some good Argentinian cuisine you can’t go wrong.
Cafe Do Rio- Hamburgueria Gourmet
Awesome burgers. Most of them are double deckers!
They say it’s best ice cream in the world. That’s for you to judge.
Pasteis de Belem
Since 1837, locals and visitors to Lisbon have visited the bakery to purchase fresh from the oven pastéis de nata, sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Their popularity normally results in long lines at the take-away counters, in addition to waiting lines for sit-down service. Also a side note the deep fried cod balls are just amazing here as well!
