Reviravolta (Rua dos Bacalhoeiros 16)

Located right by the water, this local spot serves some of the freshest seafood. They offer a platter of assorted catch of the day fishes. The prices are reasonable, with most entrees ranging form 8-12 euros. The garlic shrimp dish is a must try at this spot! You need to try Revira Volta (Lisbon, Portugal) -Best Restaurants in Lisbon

Canto Saudade (Rua dos Bacalhoeiros 6)

Just a few doors down from Reviravolta we stumbled upon this gem! Canto Saudade serves an assortment of seafood based tapas. My personal recommendation are the mussels served in an orange sauce topped with sautéed onions! Prices are a bit higher, however the tapas servings are quite large. Not only was this one of our favorite meals of our trip, I will even make the claim that it is one of the best restaurants in Lisbon!

Penalva Da Graca (270, Rua da Graca 26)

This spot is about as authentic as Portuguese dining goes. Located in Grace, one of Lisbon’s more residential neighborhoods, this restaurant is known for its seafood. The clams served here are some of the best that I’ve ever had… and they pair perfectly with a bottle of 6 euro house wine. This is one of the best restaurants in Lisbon!

Fabrica da Nata (Praca dos Restauradores 62-68)

You can’t come to Portugal and not eat a pastel de nata. These custard filled dessert are quite simply heavenly! I think I ate at least a dozen over the 3 days that we were in Lisbon. The best spot to buy them is rumored to be in Belem, however if you are limited on time in Lisbon then this spot is a close second. They were so good that I brought an extra dozen home to New York!
