Well, I think this is where you will find the best and the most authentic Pastéis of Belém. These are small, sweet pastries filled with cream which is said to have been inherited from the ancient monastery of Geronimo monks of the order of Geronimos and is located right next to the bakery. The recipe is a secret, though, and it is said that only the great chefs here know how to make them. The bakeries are always crowded but are very fast and efficient when they care of you. First go through box and say how many pastries you want. Then you get a ticket andt then you give your ticket to one of the staff of the bar and you get your pastries. They put them in a box with two packets, one with cinnamon and the other with glazed sugar to put on top of the pastries. If you pass by Lisbon don´t forget to go to this place.
This is an institution in Lisbon, before largely frequented by writers and intellectuals, and is now a meeting place for people from all walks of life where you can have a drink and enjoy a lot of recipes, such as a magnificent cod dish. The venue, filled with classic décor, has a nice terrace in one of the most beautiful streets in the city. It´s highly recommended to visit.
According to records, this is the oldest brewery in operation in Portugal. Located in the ¨Barrio Alto¨, it is located at the site of the former Convent of the Holy Trinity. It was founded in 1294 and after its destruction after the great earthquake, it was rebuilt as a brewery. The dining room is decorated with beautiful tiles. There you can also enjoy traditional Portuguese dishes at a reasonable price, which is great for a visiting tourist ve doesn´t want to spend too much money.
It's like a kind of regional home. The are where the building is located is from the last century and has a strong Arab influence. It is a place with arches, courtyards and fountains, and has a grand staircase leading up to the top floor. During the day the cultural center has many events and there is a restaurant where many weddings take place. It's worthwhile to enter to see the architecture and decor in the building.
One of the most magical places in Lisbon. It's an association that has a school of arts and entertainment for underprivileged children. That alone is pretty interesting, but the association also has a hotel complex that is simply stunning. Inside you can see a circus show, a concert or a play while enjoying a beer, cocktail or just while having dinner or a snack. This resort has a large central courtyard where you can enjoy one of the best and most pleasant views of this magical city. You MUST visit this place.
If you are fans of the sweet and good environments and coincidentally if you're visiting the Portuguese capital, I recommend going to the Pastelería Nacional. With classic décor maintained since 1829, its two whole screed floors offer everything you can imagine with a great atmosphere in which to spend the afternoon in a typical city with a pastry, especially the cream cakes (which I strongly recommend). Definitely a place to visit and to photograph!
We discovered this restaurant by accident. We wanted a place to eat with our nieces after visiting the "Mosteiro dos Jeronimos", before we went through the door, we looked in the window and liked it. We went and had no regrets, and have been back many times. Of course, it is always full and you should make a reservation even only half an hour before. It serves typical Portuguese food, homemade, simple and well cooked. I would recommend the fish, very fresh, with cod in the first place. A bottle of chilled "vinho verde" (the Muralhas is very good) to accompany the food, a homemade dessert and coffee for those ve only know how to be like the Portuguese and bon appétit! They are nice, attentive and are always in a good mood, which is appreciated. The menu has prices to fit any budget depending on the dish you want- no-one can say it's an expensive place. The portions are huge, so the starters are almost too much. Actually not a bad idea to tell the waiter that you don't want them even before sitting down to eat: a plate of ham and one of cheese cost € 11.00. It's not nonsense. If you can make room for more food, Caseiro is practically in front of the famous "Casa dos Pastéis de Belém". It's open from 12:00 to 15:00 and 19:00 to 22:00 and it's closed Sundays and August.
Well, we found it very expensive. It's a place especially meant for foreigners and tourists. It costed more than 45 € per person and we only ordered two small salads to share and a main meal without dessert or wine. A plate of ham at least 18 €. That if everything was very good and they had a great ¨fado¨. Good luck
Definitely the best restaurant in Lisbon. We booked a reservation on the 14th of February and they gave us a table. The truth is that the service was exquisite and the food as well, such a delicacy. I had the best scallops I´ve ever had!. I will return without doubt.
We decided on this restaurant because it was recommended by a local and nobody knows the best spots in the city like they do. First we shared some clams cooked with parsely and garlic. It was the the perfect appetizer and a real treat. For the latter we all decided on cod but cooked different ways, cod brass (flaked fish with potatoes and eggs), grilled cod (grilled and served with potatoes) and cod with cream (comes crumbled with melted cream). The dinner was accompanied by a bottle of Muralhas, one of the best green wines I've tried. The location was very central too, right near the Monastery of Jeronimos. Very attentive waitstaff and quality prices to match. I will definitely return!
This is one of those stylish restaurants in Lisbon. The service was very good, with good prices and good food. Worth it if you want to dine in one of those places designed for Lisbon visitors ve don't want to leave their wallets behind. Pay attention when trying to find it, because there's nothing written on the door.
Great homemade Portuguese diner dishes including fish, a perfect place to regain strength after visiting the Belem district or the Jeronimos Monastery. The site may look chaotic but eventually you just laughing at all the jokes the waiters make - eat well and laugh. Another good thing about is that when you finish you can have a coffee and some pastries of Belem because on the right is the bakery where they were invented.
Beira Gare is a bustling and busy restaurant around the Rocío, we decided to go just because of the number of people at their tables, it has rich and cheap eats. Rations, as in most of Portugal, are more than enough for two people. We tried the grilled cod and coinsinhas, they were like croquettes and were really good.
It was a Saturday dinner, the burgers were huge and very, very rich. Another thing that I really liked, apart from its feature décor, was the deal we got and the waiters super fun! The prices ... you know, "It's Hard Rock".
My second time in Lisbon was much more relaxing ... I wanted dinner at a restaurant with live fado. Cod washed down with a good vinho verde, and fado - intermittent early in the evening, but later continuous. Excellent service. Perhaps they went out of their way to sell CDs at the end, but that's their prerogative. In short: VERY recommended
Exquisite restaurant beside the Tagus where we enjoyed Cardoso rice with octopus and shrimp that we won't not forget for a long, delicious clams and cod chuparase fingers - all this with staff and a great price. Highly recommended.
It's wonderful, if somewhat expensive, but the quality is very good. It isn't in the center but it's worth going to because you choose the fish that is shown and they grill it. I recommend this place if you want to spend about 25 € per person.
