I'm looking for some fun places to dine alone when I head to Portugal in a week. I'll be in Porto (Rua Santa Catarina) for 3 days and Lisbon (Avenue Liberdade) for 4 days. I already have Pedro Lemas on my list, and even navigated the Portuguese website to make a reservation.
I'm looking for great food, great views, friendly staff, good people watching and safe neighborhoods. Meeting other travelers or singles would be a bonus, as well as anywhere with live music.
Any advice is much appreciated.
