Food & Drink
As with many southern European destinations, eating and drinking in Lisbon is part of the culture and should be placed high on the "to do" list for any visitor to the city. It is something to be experienced, enjoyed, savoured and remembered and there is no shortage of options available. Fish and seafood in general is abundant in Lisbon due to its position so close to the coast and traditional cooking styles dominate the culinary scene in the city.
For a well deserved break from the shopping and sightseeing, stopping at one of the legendary cafés in Lisbon is highly recommended. There you can watch the locals watch the world go by.
Where to eat
As with any major city, there are many different types of cuisine available from traditional Portuguese to Indian, Thai, Italian and Spanish. There are eateries to suit all pockets and tastes ranging from fast food to Michelin starred, from rustic to trendy.
Cafés, tascas, and beer halls (Cervejarias) are liberally scattered throughout Lisbon , so you'll never be short of refreshment in the day. The heart of Lisbon 's bar culture is the Bairro Alto where bars have squeezed into every available space. Younger, rival areas have begun to spring up, notably around the docks (Docas) but this is more popular for nights out than for afternoon refreshments.
