3) Botequim da Graça

Botequim da Graça was founded in 1968 by famous writer Natália Correia and for decades it has been a meeting place for artists and intellectuals. There are poetry nights and live music, all set in a retro atmosphere that’s created by the antiques-filled décor. On the menu you’ll find Portuguese tapas.

4) Farès

The best and coolest Middle Eastern restaurant in Lisbon, by far. Farès is also a cocktail bar, offering signature drinks that match the mood of the food served. It's always busy and lively, full of happy people who come to enjoy the tasty bites.

5) Osteria

Osteria is probably Lisbon’s closest thing to a true Italian restaurant; it’s owned by an Italian cook who prepares genuine Italian home-style dishes. The service is like the food: friendly, warm and easy-going.
