Lisbon has quietly become one of the best foodie cities in Europe. Scratch that, best foodie cities in the world! With a salivating lineup of great restaurants for every budget, it’s one of those cities where it’s worth lining up your breakfast , lunch, and dinner plans for your entire visit, so that you don’t leave without hitting all your share of phenomenal restaurants.
After spending over a month living in the city, here is our list of 14 must-try restaurants in Lisbon. If you’re visiting during the summer, you will likely need a reservation at most of these restaurants, unless you opt for an early dinner. We had a fair amount of success showing up to restaurants right when they opened at 7pm, and getting in without a reservation. However, if you’re looking to eat later, or have a larger group, it’s best to book a table ahead of time.
