Floresta de Santana Calcada de Santana 18/20
Unfortunately we only discovered this tiny local restaurant on our last day in Lisbon, otherwise we had definitely visited the place a couple of times more. The place is family run and offers a range of delicious fish (and meat) meals which are quite inexpensive and incredibly tasty. I would definitely recommend Floresta de Santana when you're looking for a local and less tourist restaurant to enjoy lunch or dinner.
Barracão de Alfama Rua de Sao Pedro 16, Alfama
A great and affordable place to enjoy dinner. Especially during summer days, since the restaurant includes a small terrace on a cozy courtyard. My boyfriend and I especially liked their sangria, grilled cuttlefish and sardines.
Sea Me Peixaria Moderna Rua do Loreto 21
In case you're a sushi addict - like me - this is the place to be. Sea Me is a bit more expensive than average in Lisbon but the quality is absolutely great. They serve quite a range of fish tapas, including sushi dishes.
Gelateria Portuguesa Rua Sta. Cruz do Castelo 15
The best ice cream we had during our week in Lisbon - and we definitely tried lots of ice cream shops (had like two or three ice creams a day). Gelateria Portuguesa is located close to Castelo de Sao Jorge up on the city hill, so before you'll get your hands on the ice cream you already burned the calories, which is also big advantage for the fitgirls and -guys among us.
Pastéis de Belém Rua de Belem 84
This bakery serves the famous Portugese Pastel de Nata (which is a sweet egg tart pastry). The most tasty one we had during our stay. So in case you're visiting the Belém neighbourhood definitely make a stop here to give this traditional pastry a try.
