Portugal Trip Report

Thanks for all the details - just goes to show how your can sample great food in Portugal without breaking the bank! I took a group to O Tabuleiro this summer & we had a 3 course meal & wine & coffee for 12 euros per person.

near lisbon airport

By far the best & closest place to eat near to #Lisbon airport is Na Ordem Fab food & great setting.

Small, private business dinner in Lisbon

Clube de Jornalistas in Lapa has a lovely private room with antique tiles - it is number 1 on TripAdvisor & good value so might be an option. Rua das Trinas 129, Lisboa, Portugal

Lunch in Lisbon on 1 Jan 2012

Interesting that you have never been. I found it because one of my tour couples stayed at the hotel during Lisbon Restaurant Week last year, when they booked in I immediately got them a table for dinner that night. During the tour the next day we had booked in for lunch at Assinatura which was good by the way but they raved about the meal that they had had the previous night at AdLIb - so of course I took my South African executive to AdLib for lunch there the next day where we had the best meal of all. Their green risotto dish although not pretty or with the greatest presentation was THE best of all the meals that week with the thumbs up from the four of us and VERY more-ish! Actually it was not the 1st restaurant the came to mind for my tour guests but after tasting the food plus the convenience of location it is now firmly on my radar.

Ad Lib buffet, it ticked all the boxes including catering to the twin who was a vegetarian. She did quite a bit of photographing the food and doing a Foursquare mention of the venue. Highlight was the salty chocolate dessert. Mother overdosed on the bread, dipping it in virgin olive oil, & father loved the smoked salmon. So this new year lunch was a big success for the family from Miami on tour with me from the Independence of the Seas cruise ship. I did phone up Brasserie Flo in the morning but it was fully booked - thanks for all the help.

Thanks & that reminded me of Ad Lib at the Sofitel confirmed it does a lunchtime buffet tomorrow. But it is good advice to follow our noses, might come up with something interesting. I will ask St Antonio - found me a good parking space tonight!

Anyone help with a restaurant that will be open in the city tomorrow for lunch - first day of the new year plus a Sunday!

Help with typical family Lisbon restaurant. suggestions?

First time American visitors have asked me to find a Lisbon eatery that covers these parameters "Fancy restaurants are nice, but we'd rather try something that is off the beaten path and more like what a grandmother would cook for her family" Suggestions?
