Vegan isn’t so bad after all: Restaurant Veganapati (23. June 2019)

Whenever someone takes me to a vegan restaurant I put my expectations at the lowest level possible as I believe you’re just missing out on things in terms of nutrients when you don’t eat any meat or diary products. Said that, I followed the rest of the group and gave in to visiting a vegan […]

Lovely shisha place where you’d not expect it: Cocktail & Shisha Bar & Lounge (22. June 2019)

I did not expect to find a decent shisha place in Lisbon but was actually lucky enough to do exactly that. The “cocktail & shisha bar & lounge” was already super crowded when we had arrived around 10pm. And interestingly enough people kept coming and were sent away because the place was packed. The place […]

Nice average Portuguese restaurant: Restaurant Optimista (22. June 2019)

I found the Optimista on TripAdvisor as one of the better restaurants in Lisbon, so I decided to give it a try. The take a cover charge of EUR 3.50 for some bread, olives, olive oil and spread. While I would usually say that this is a bit of a rip-off, I think it’s okay […]

Lovely little wine bar where you need a reservation: By the Wine Bar (22. June 2016)

What I like about Google Maps is the fact that their ratings are generally quite reliable. I was looking for a bar which was in walking distance to the restaurant where we’d go later. And the “by the wine” bar popped up. The place was – no surprise there – super crowded and we were […]

Quite a typical tourist trap: Restaurant Esplanada do Cantinho (22. June 2019)

Quite a typical tourist trap: Restaurant Esplanada do Cantinho (22. June 2019)

We ended up in the “Esplanada do Cantinho” because we needed to drink something and a bio break. Given the weather was nice and we were able to sit outside while sipping our “jar of Sangria” (EUR 16.80), we eventually got hungry and went for the “little fried sardines” (EUR 7.90). While I had asked […]

Decent breakfast buffet but not worth traveling for: Restaurant Bistrôa @ Fontecruz Hotel (22. June 2019)

Decent breakfast buffet but not worth traveling for: Restaurant Bistrôa @ Fontecruz Hotel (22. June 2019)

The breakfast buffet at the Fontecruz Hotel is fitting the hotel perfectly – it is a bit exclusive in terms of what kind of ingredients and dishes you get but it is also a bit small in terms of selection. Frankly though, the Bistrôa offers enough of everything for you to have a nice and […]

A Bosnian dining experience in a Portuguese restaurant: Restaurant 100 Maneiras (21. June 2019)

The 100 Maneiras has just opened about three months ago and is a bit hidden. If you want to dine at 100 Maneiras, I highly recommend you to book a table in advance and to make sure you maybe book another but the last seating (which is at 9:30pm) as the dinner takes about three […]

Great place with good food and superb service: Restaurant Big 21 (7. January 2019)

A couple of nights before, I had walked into Big 21 and it turned out that they were fully booked so I decided to give it a try two days later and it was definitely worth doing so. Heads-up: Book in advance as else you will have your difficulties getting a table. I started with […]
