2. Descobre, Belem Rua Bartolomeu Dias 65/69, Lisbon, Portugal

Descobre is a perfect lunch spot when discovering the sights of Belem. It’s 2 minute walking distance from the Jeronimos Monastery. They have a great selection of tapas style dishes and hearty Portuguese mains. Nice fresh and modern decor. The tapas and polpo were the highlights.

3. A Fábrica de Santiago, Alfama Rua de Santiago, 12, Lisbon 1100-494
This is another great lunch spot, situated on a quiet street in Alfama – if the weather is good (most likely) sit outside. The menu is varied. Food is traditional but with a modern touch.
