EATING IN LISBON..first visit

Jump to last reply

I've had no luck with my request on a food site, so maybe some Fodorites can give me a hand here. I've done a ridiculous amount of reading and watching food videos, as usual, and come up with about 6 places for 5 nights in Lisbon. So I need to cut at least one from this list. Or maybe cut more than one and add another.

Budget is generous but do not favor very formal or stuffy. I'm very divided on Belcanto and would like to hear from people who have been.

We live in Manhattan and have very good high-end restaurants, so only will keep Belcanto if it really is quite special.

I love shellfish. Partner does not, but is content to go to a shellfish place and order a steak sandwich (Ramiro).

Staying in Bairro Alto but willing to walk or take taxi.

OK...here is my current list:


BEL CANTO. I am more than happy to pay the price if it is a truly special place with exceptional food. But some reports speak of disappointments...should we go?

MINI BAR TEATRO. I liked Tickets in Barcelona; should I keep this on the list? Substitute for Belcanto (same chef,, who trained with Albert Adria) or do both?

CERVEJARIA RAMIRO. I'm pretty set on this unless I read otherwise. Apparently one can reserve for upstairs; will I miss out on the bustling atmosphere if I eat there?

PEXIERIA DA ESQUINA

IBO (Mozambiquan; just cause I've never had this and am intrigued by the spicing)

100 MANEIRAS

SOL PESCA (this sounds like a version of Quimet in Barcelona in that they serve only seafood conservas; might stop in and try some canned seafood for a snack.)

Also, planning to bring home large amounts of good quality canned seafood. Prices at SOL PESCA seem high; which would be the best place in Lisbon to buy these? Supermarkets near Bairro Alto? Corte Ingles?
