Help me refine list for 5 nights in Lisbon, please!

erica | Sep 22, 201609:34 AM

I will visit Lisbon for the first time in early November. I've been reading online guides and blogs and have come up with a tentative list for 5 dinners. I'd also welcome some ideas for light lunches; will want to sample the famous sandwiches of pork and beef, of course.

For more substantial dinners, please comment on these places and let me know which I ought to keep and which I might want to cut. (Very difficult to narrow down with so many tempting choices!)

I should mention that while I eat almost anything, my partner does not eat shellfish apart from scallops, and prefers meat to fish. Cervejeria Ramiro is on my list but he is willing to order a steak sandwich or two there in order to allow me to gorge on shellfish.

So what do you all think of these:

BEL CANTO. I am more than happy to pay the price if CHers feel it is a truly special place with exceptional food. But some reports speak of disappointments...should we go?

MINI BAR TEATRO. I liked Tickets in Barcelona; should I keep this on the list? Substitute for Belcanto or do both?

CERVEJARIA RAMIRO. I'm pretty set on this unless I read otherwise. Apparently one can reserve for upstairs; will I miss out on the bustling atmosphere if I eat there?
