Pre-Paid Taxi Option in Lisbon Airport

My flight is scheduled to arrive in Lisbon Airport from Madrid at 11:30 PM. It is my first trip to Lisbon, and I need to go to a hotel in downtown - probably in a taxi.
Somewhere I read that there is a pre-paid taxi where you pay inside the airport in order not to be overcharged.
Is there such a thing? Would it be available that time of the day?

>For visitors in a hurry, taxi provides the fastest means of transport but drivers have a reputation for overcharging unsuspecting tourists. All fares should be based on the meter reading but some drivers insist on a set fare. If the driver insists on a set fee make sure this is agreed at the outset. For tourists seeking transport for distances beyond Lisbon, it is advisable to pre-book transfers as taxi journeys can get very expensive.<

>Lisbon Airport can now be reached directly by underground train. The Airport Metro Station operates from 06:30 to 01:00. This connection takes you from the city centre (Saldanha) to the airport in about 21 minutes.<

I would love to use Metro, but I will be traveling shortly after midnight with a luggage.
Thank you for the good info, Robert.
