Av. Dom Carlos I, 55 A, Lisboa – Tel +351 21 390 9418 | Google maps
Amazing fish and seafood restaurant in Santos. It is recommended to reserve a table as the place is always very busy. The food is very tasty and always fresh. Make sure to leave space for the desserts, try the cheese cake! Lovely friendly staff and good service.
Rua das Madres 52 – 54, Lisboa – Tel +351 21 396 0584 | Google maps
This little cozy Italian restaurant in Madragoa it is a real gem! The food is superb, the setting is just what you expect from a typical Italian Ostaria, homey and informal. We really enjoy the formula where the plates are big enough to share and come out of the kitchen in no particular order, you simply share whatever plate comes first…It is a small space so make sure to reserve beforehand so you avoid waiting outside.
Rua da Esperança 33, Lisboa – Tel +351 961 645 040 | Google maps
One of my absolute favorites for a healthy brunch in Madragoa. I simpy love everything about this place: the warm tropical cozy setting, the healthy food which is absolutely delicious (try the advocado toast, the acai or the Thai bowl, so yummie) and the genuine friendly service. The restaurant is always packed with hipsters so be prepared to wait a bit. Oh, and make sure to leave space for dessert, the Guilty Pancakes are out of this world!

Le Chat is a glass cube cafe-restaurant in the Janelas Verdes area, next to the Museum of Ancient Art.

Park is a rooftop parking lot turned into a garden terrace where you can enjoy 180º views of Lisbon on a sunny afternoon or by starlight through the evening. Park opens daily at 1 pm and only closes late at night. The wooden patio furniture and the small potted trees create a casual feeling of a garden which becomes very popular at night with regular DJ performances and open air cinema sessions. The place can get very crowded during summer.
