The 5 most stunning restaurants in Lisbon

1) Pharmacia

Located in the Museum of Pharmacy, everything in this unique restaurant is connected to the theme of the old pharmacies. The comfort food menu, created by chef-owner Susana Felicidade, is pure bliss on a plate. There’s also a great terrace overlooking the charming square of Santa Catarina.

2) Casa de Pasto

A cool restaurant in one of the city's hippest neighbourhoods for foodies. The dishes on the menu are innovative but rustic at the same time. They’re the perfect match for the very original décor that mirrors, in a intentionally kitsch way, the style of the traditional Portuguese homes.

It is the country’s oldest surviving establishment, dating from 1784, and it has a tradition of serving classical cuisine, with a French inspiration. The eye-catching dining-room is decorated with gilded woodworks and stuccoes, chandeliers and mirrors.

4) A Travessa

Owned by Antonio and Viviane, a Portuguese-Belgian duo, A Travessa has kept its allure and charm for over two decades. Located in an old convent in the heart of traditional Madragoa, the restaurant attracts a mixed crowd of local jet-setters and foreigners who come for the comfort food and great service.
