Lisbon is an ancient capital where the rich Portuguese cuisine with its traditions and culinary recipes persists. Portuguese gastronomy is famous for its abundance of fish and seafood dishes. What better than the city’s restaurants to discover the gastronomic culture of the Portuguese capital?

I present below the TOP 10 of the best restaurants in Lisbon. It’s only personal, there are many other rankings available all over the internet and it depends on what you are looking for specifically: location, atmosphere, type of cuisine, etc… Each restaurant on this list stands out for me from hundreds of others present in the capital and will be an excellent choice if you come to visit Lisbon.

Restaurant Eleven in Lisbon

Restaurant Eleven in Lisbon

The restaurant is located in the business center of Lisbon, surrounded by the lush vegetation of the Eduardo VII Park. Huge panoramic windows offer a beautiful view of the city and the Tagus. It is particularly pleasant to dine at a table near the windows when Lisbon is flooded with lights in the evening. Beautiful curtains, white tablecloths, soft light, music: everything here is made to make you have a great time.

The menu is no less attractive. The Michelin-starred chef Joachim Koerper appreciates traditional Portuguese cuisine and prepares very original dishes:

  • Assortments of fish caught in the Atlantic Ocean in different parts of Portugal: Continental, Azores and Madeira (cost – 46 €).
  • The restaurant offers a tasting menu (€115), Atlantic (€94) and lobster (€175) in which all dishes are of course based on lobster.
  • Original dishes such as “the stone soup”, inspired by an old Portuguese legend: soup, bacon or chorizo, potatoes and beans.

Its doors were first opened in 1784 when it was called Talão by the brothers Antonio and Manuel Tavaresa.

Restaurant A Travessa in Lisbon

Best restaurants Lisbon A Travessa

This restaurant is located close to the Belgian and French embassies in Lisbon. The modest appearance of the door does not immediately convey the atmosphere of the restaurant, but a little patience! This ground floor of a building that once housed a convent is one of the best restaurants in Lisbon.

At the entrance you can feel a special aura, as this restaurant has partially preserved its old interior and you will even find a medieval fireplace in the lobby. It is very pleasant to dine in this restaurant in winter under the measured crackling of the logs.

The restaurant is run by the Belgian Vivian Durieu and the Portuguese Antonio Moita, so the cuisine can be described as Portuguese with a Belgian influence. There is plenty of fish and seafood. The wine list is mainly composed of the best Portuguese wines. Count on average 150€ to eat in this restaurant in the Portuguese capital.

Restaurant Adega das Gravatas in Lisbon

Restaurant Lisbon: Adega Das Gravatas

Very unusual restaurant that is not in the tourist area of Lisbon but near the Pontina metro station. At the entrance, on the walls of the hall and even under the ceiling, a large number of ties of different colors. The fact is that Manuel Araujo, who in 1940 transformed the institution this tavern into a restaurant, wrote on the wall a sentence close to : “Come into this house, take off your tie and leave it”. Our wine will make your life easier.”

Since then, more than 3,000 ties have gathered here, and the number continues to grow. The locals like to go to restaurants and there are few tourists, so many regulars know each other: if you are looking for authenticity, this is the place to eat in Lisbon.

The restaurant is always crowded and noisy, like the Parisian brasseries and the cuisine is typically Portuguese, especially the roast octopus which is delicious. The prices are very correct and the portions are quite large (Portuguese characteristic). You can eat properly for 25 to 30 €.
