The 5 Best Restaurants in Lisbon, Portugal
1. Reviravolta (Rua dos Bacalhoeiros 16)
Located right by the water, this local spot serves some of the freshest seafood in the city. Rua dos Bacalhoeiros is a street known to offer some of the best restaurants in Lisbon, Portugal. At Reviravolta you can sample a platter of the assorted catch of the day fishes. The prices are reasonable, with most entrees ranging from 8-12 euros. I highly recommend ordering the garlic shrimp dish.
Canto Saudade (Rua dos Bacalhoeiros 6)
Also on Rua dos Bacalhoeiros, just a few doors down from Reviravolta we stumbled upon this gem! Canto Saudade serves an assortment of seafood based tapas. I recommend the mussels served in an orange sauce topped with sautéed onions! Prices are a bit higher that other restaurants on the street, 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, Portugal!
Penalva Da Graca (270, Rua da Graca 26)
This seafood restaurant 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 by far one of the best restaurants in Lisbon, Portugal!
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 pastel de nata is in Belem, however if you are limited on time in Lisbon then this spot is a close second. The custards were so good that I brought an extra dozen back home to New York!
Medrose d’Alfama (Largo Sao Rafael 6)
Looking for the best restaurants in Lisbon? Medrose d’Alfama is a great option in the Alfama district. We ordered the grilled octopus and the Portuguese style cod and both we cooked perfectly! The glasses of sangria are also nice and large! Do note that this restaurant is cash only!
