Pap’ Acorda
When a restaurant is acclaimed by the locals, it suggests it has a winning formula. It is well worth a visit for its exquisite cuisine and easy location.
Nariz Apurado
Although mainly reliant on local Lisboetas, this friendly bistro is recommended to all. Its backstreet location makes it is a perfect choice for a real taste of Portugal.
