Here are the great spots I tested in Lisbon, Portugal, that I strongly recommend. I would go back there without hesitating!

restaurant-eat Mercado da Ribeira / Time Out Lisboa Market

A market and a food court that offers typical food seen by Portguguese chefs, and also international food and pastries.
It’s delicious, affordable and there’s such a warm atmosphere!

like Miguel Castro e Silva (sardines, cod, salt cod and mash potato), Manteigaria (Pastéis de Nata)
info sun – wed: 10AM – 12AM / thu – sat: 10AM – 2AM
Avenida 24 de Julho – Cais do Sodré station


coffeePastéis de Belém Bakery

This bakery created the Pastéis de Belém in 1837. Add icing sugar and cinnamon on top of the pastry, it’s fantastic! You’ll notice the difference with other Pasteis of the city that seem less traditional.
info every day, from 8AM to 11PM from Oct 1st to June 30, from 8AM to 12AM from July 1st to Sept 30
Rua de Belém nº 84 a 92


hotel Lisboa Carmo Hotel

I strongly recommend this hotel! Very good welcome, service, dinner/breakfast. The rooms have everything essential and much more – water and nespresso offered in the room. Quiet and in the heart of the city, next to everything.
info Rua da Oliveira ao Carmo 1-3, Baixa or Rossio subway station

barTopo Chiado Bar

This terrace is very nice for a break in the afternoon or in the evening. To find it, go towards the Convento Carmo and the Elevador. Instead of climbing the stairs to Elevador, take the stairs that go downstairs on the left.
info every day from 1PM
Terraços do Carmo


restaurant-eat Lisboa A Noite

A Portuguese food that’s reinvented into a great cuisine in a chic restaurant. The Portuguese wines are excellent.
like The sardines on bread, the salted coddfish with olive oil, the wine Casa Emelinda Freitas Syrah de Setúbal were great!
info mon – thu: 7:30PM – midnight, fri – sat: ven: 7:30PM – 1AM
Rua das Gáveas, 69 Bairro Alto


barPark Bar

A rooftop on top of a car park! You have a very nice view on the city and on the bridge from this place, with good drinks. You can also eat there. Just so you know, when you enter the car park it’s not written every where how to go to the bar – the best way we found to reach it is to take the small door on the left when you enter the car park and take the elevator. Then you have to climb stairs to reach the last floor, here you go :) Try to go there before 7PM to have nice seats outside.

info tue – sat: 1PM – 2AM, sun: 1PM – 8PM
Calçada do Combro, 58
