Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Lisbon

A Travessa
Based within the busy tourist area of Lapa, this restaurant is mainly adored by Lisboetas, which is always a promising sign to tourists. Its reputation is simply unbeaten in the area.
Ramiro
Despite a less than salubrious location, locals regularly queue for a place on the plastic tables of this eatery, which offers the perfect opportunity to gorge yourself on fabulous seafood.
XL
XL has more than enough atmosphere on its own despite its non-central location. Full of fiercely loyal fans, the premises are constantly busy and people eat and drink far more than they should...
Cervejaria Trindade
Traditional Portuguese food served up on platters and washed down with in-house beer...
Primavera
Solar dos Nunes
Adhering to traditional restaurant values, all energies here are put into the city's best Alentejian cuisine. The southern region Alentejo is popular with an older generation of traditionalists.
Tavares Rico
This luxurious dining house is well situated in the hubbub of the bars and restaurants the area has to offer. After a period of closure, it is more acclaimed than ever.
Os Corvos
Situated in a rather obscure location, away from the trendy Santa Apolonia development, it is easy to oversee this stylish residence. However, the exquisite cuisine and wine make this restaurant a top find.
Mercado de Santa Clara
After visiting The Fiera da Ladra flea market, this restaurant is a fantastic choice for lunchtimes. Tuck in to a traditional Portuguese Sunday lunch buffet...
Galeto
Although situated in a more remote part of the city, Galeto Restaurant is perfectly placed; next door to a fantastic party hotspot, you can spend hours and hours here contemplating life.
Pinoquio
Pinoquio offers a large and varied selection, both in price and quality, of cuisine and alcohol. The location is perhaps one of the greater attributes; within walking distance of the main city squares.
Estufa Real
Although based in a rather remote location, this restaurant provides more than enough to make the journey worth while. The Sunday brunch is particularly popular.
Lisboa Noite
Despite being situated on the busy street of Rua do Norte, Lisboa Noite offers a calm and sophisticated evening. Good seafood is served at reasonable prices, and service is friendly and polite.
Café Buenos Aires
Enjoy watching the tango while tucking into tartines at this lively eatery...
