Lovely Lisbon

Food & Drinks

  • Park – The rooftop of a car park (7th floor) is transformed into a bar with a beautiful view over the city and the river. It opens daily at 1PM and only closes late at night. It’s filled with wooden furniture and small potted trees to create the feeling of a garden. One of the best terraces of Lisbon. Good cocktails, great burgers and an amazing view. What else do you need? – Calçada do Combro, 58
  • Mesón Andaluz – This small and cozy restaurant is across our guesthouse. It has original Portugese tapas and very good wines. The perfect date location! – Travessa do Alecrim 4
  • Mercado da Ribeira – Market hall with a lot of choice, comparable with the “Markthal” in Rotterdam and “Mercat de la Boqueria” in Barcelona
  • The decadente – Restaurant? Cafe? Bar? Hostel? Terrace? Everything in one! Simple but really good and healthy menu – Rua de Sao Pedro de Alcantara 81
  • Pao á Mesa – Lovely restaurant in a very nice street in Principe Real. – Rua D. Pedro V nr.44
  • Pensao Amor – This place used to be a whorehouse, but now turned into a cocktailbar. During the weekend is loaded with tourists and locals and after we tried the GT’s we know why. The interior, design and wall paintings are kept in tact, hilarious! – Rua do Alecrim 19

Sleep

  • Boho Cais do Sodré (guesthouse) – If you want to sleep in the middle of the old town, make a reservation at Boho Guest House. This house only has four rooms and you can share the living rooms with others. Design is great and the owner super friendly and helpful. – Travessa do Alecrim n3,1 

P.S. We didn’t go there, but if you have the time go visit Sintra. We heard it’s beautiful!
