Lisbon: Food Guide - Dining Out
Beautiful views, majestic monasteries, quaint cafe's and more
Once almost a source of fear among travelers, Portuguese food, characterized mostly by fish, beans and local meats, is making its mark on Europe’s gastronomic map. Many restaurants are still small, family run affairs. Although fish and other local dishes still rule, Lisbon is home to a wide range of Asian, Brazilian, African, Indian, European and fusion restaurants. For traditional fare, try Chiado, Bairro Alto and the Baixa. For a more modern, chic dining experience, try the trendy “Docas” on the river. Prices are gener-ally quite inexpensive compared to other European capitals.
