    This historic cafe in the oldest university city in the country, was a former convent just next to the Church. Now renovated and used as a cafe/ restaurant. I always go there to listen to Coimbra Fado sessions! It's trully emotional!

    This "tasca" is a small typical restaurant, with a unique decor (people can write/draw notes/ drawings and fix them on their walls), the food is amazing and very cheap! My favourite is the boar beans dish! Love it!

    Largo Conde Vila Flôr, 7000-804 Évora, Portugal
    2 reviews

    Since we stayed at this Pousada, Gayle and I had breakfast here both mornings and for one evening meal. Although the restaurant spacing was a little odd (retrofitting the existing historical space), the food was very good and the service was pleasant.

    Santini Chiado

    Rua do Carmo 9, 1200-093 Lisbon, Portugal

    Before going into Santini Chiado, a Portuguese guy on the street shouted, "Best ice cream in the world!" He sold me, I opened the door to Santini and fell in love with the ice cream. It really was so delicious! They have great milkshakes as well.

    Antiga Confeteria de Belem

    Rua de Belem, 84 84, 1300-085 Lisboa, Portugal
    5 reviews

    Extremely packed: long queue outside just to get some milk pastries, but definitely worth it. Pastries are delicious and a must in Lisbon. Possibility to have drinks inside, when not extremely busy: the interior looks like an ancient spa.

One of the best views on the city ...

    Gayle and I came to the FAIA Restaurant to here some Fado Music. Fado (meaning destiny or fate in Portuguese) is a music genre which can be traced to the 1820s in Portugal, but probably with much earlier origins. In popular belief, Fado is a form of music characterized by mournful tunes and lyrics, often about the sea or the ...

    Gayle and I came her for Lunch on our first day in Lisbon. With our jet lag, it was more like a mid-afternoon "Linner". This place was hard to find, but worth the Alfama journey.

    Restaurante Pharmacia

    Rua Marechal Saldanha 1, 1200 Lisbon, Portugal
    3 reviews

    A really fun pharmacy-themed restaurant located in an old pharmacy museum where all the servers wear surgical gowns and the chef surprises you with a 5 course Portuguese meal with dessert. The cocktails have prescription like names and my receipt even came in a pillbox. Go for the food, but more for the interesting apothecary atmosphere.
