Been reading all your Lisbon suggestions with interest and was hoping I could trouble you for a few specific suggestions for our trip. There are 6 of us ladies heading to Lisbon for the weekend in a fortnight and I'd love some suggestions for brunch/lunch/dinner venues. We love good food and wine and are in town from Fri eve to Sun night, we wouldnt mind splashing out for a slightly more pricey/swanky/formal meal on one night and keeping it more cheap and cheerful another night (maybe even somewhere we dont have to reserve) - however we are from London so used to spending quite a bit even on supposedly "cheap" meals! We'd prefer a mix of different dishes in the restaurants, not all of us are fish lovers for example, so we need to cater for us all. We like somewhere with a nice buzzy atmosphere and good service - altho not a nightclubby/bar type place where people are dancing/getting hammered while you're trying to eat (We're lively but not rowdy!) - and also like to be able to linger and take a while rather than being rushed out. If possible I would also love to try some traditional Portuguese food whilst we're there, prob would prefer not to go to a Chinese or Italian restaurant for example even if its amazing. Finally if there's anywhere good with a view or round tables (personal preference - I hate being stuck at the end of a long table!) that would be fab!!!!
Also any bar recommendations welcome.
Thanks so much in advance for your help. What a great site!
