How To Eat & Drink Your Way Through Lisbon In Style

Rooftop bars and traditional high-end cuisine!

When I stayed at Dear Lisbon Guesthouses, its Operations Manager Fabia Murta and I really struck up a great rapport. We had planned on grabbing drinks one evening, but she needed to tend to her husband. So Fabia generously left me a list of local addresses, some of Lisbon’s best. I didn’t get a chance to try all of them, but I wanted to share these cool addresses that make Lisbon one of the most delicious capitals in the world!

Today, it has sustained its posh and cool vibes with great food. A chic sushi bar with a fantastic wine cellar, this is an IT place to observe sophisticated crowds, and enjoy a river view.
