Restaurants in Lisbon
Set out below are some of the restaurants in Lisbon I visited in a weekend.
O Botecto Barrio Alto: Rua do Gremio Lusitano 14, Lisbon 1200-212
This was a great find just off a side street in Barrio Alto. O Boteco serves traditional Portugese food with an Italian twist. There are tables outside for al fresco dining and cute inside area as well.
The food and drink were good quality and very reasonable priced. Two courses with wine (plenty of) was only 25 Euros. Try the espumante for 8 Euros – fizzy rose which was great!
Tucked away down one of the side streets in Barrio Alto is a typical Portuguese restaurant, Floresta do Calhariz with a Brazilian twist.
We sat outside, although be warned it is on a slope so feels a little strange at the beginning! The staff were very friendly and the food was good. It was nothing amazing but the prices were very reasonable and it was very relaxed. The house white was a bargain price of 8 Euros (and was decent!) and we had a great time!
We tried the smoked sausage to begin, as well as the soup and the prawns. The Brazilian style meat for mains was huge! It came with thinly sliced steak with peppercorn sauce, chips, rice AND salad!
This was a great little find in Cais do Sodre with modern airy interior and good food to match. Once again the house white at only 9Euros was lovely.
We devoured the lamb (so tasty and succulent) pasta with squid ink and the octopus. The service was very friendly and accommodating and we were given some complimentary port at the end!
