The 5 best places for cheap eats in Lisbon

2) Martim Moniz

Martim Moniz is a ‘fusion market’ located on a square in downtown Lisbon. It consists of about a dozen kiosks offering food from around the world. It’s also the place to be for many events that all aim to be an ode to and a celebration of the cultural diversity of this part of Lisbon.

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) Pistola y Corazón

This small taqueria (taco shop) is as genuine as it gets: the moment you walk through the doors, it feels as if you were in the heart of Mexico City. It’s a great place to enjoy good music and innovative cocktails, made mostly with tequila.

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.
