The 5 best places for a healthy meal in Lisbon
1) The Food Temple
Chef Alice Ming opened a vegan restaurant on a secluded, intimate and stunning dead end square in the decadent Mouraria district. The menu changes daily depending on what’s on offer at the market but it is invariably full of heart and creative. Be sure to book a table and ask to be seated on the square steps for an even richer experience.
2) Os Tibetanos
This decades-old secret spot is more than a restaurant as it is part of a cultural ensemble that includes a small Buddhist temple. The venue also offers yoga and meditation classes.

3) The Green Affair
This fine-dining restaurant serves vegan food in a beautiful setting, which sets it apart from all the other healthy-food restaurants in town. The attention to presentation is particularly interesting and got them considerable acclaim. The original restaurant is just off Avenida da República and another outlet opened in Chiado.
Arkhe has established itself as the best vegetarian/vegan restaurant in town, period. It has everything you would find in a sophisticated fine-dining restaurant, except for animal products. Dishes are seasonal and masterfully created by chef João Ricardo Alves.
5) Senhor Uva
Small, cosy, sustainable, thoughtful, warm. This is Senhor Uva, a small, hidden restaurant and one of the top vegan spots in town. They opened a wine shop across the street that sells the restaurant's (natural and organic) wine selection, and more.
