Lisbon’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean means that seafood is most definitely on the menu in many restaurants in this city. Some of the national favourites you must sample at any traditional Portuguese restaurant are charcoal-grilled sardines (sardinhas assadas) and cod fishcakes (bacalhau); all accompanied with a glass of port. Portuguese dishes are renowned for their size with huge helpings served in most restaurants – you are doing well if you can make it to dessert!

The most popular area to go for a meal in Lisbon is in Bairro Alto where you will find lots of international restaurants and bars, as well as nightlife which lasts into the small hours of the morning.
