Lisbon, the Portuguese capital can boast of having a very rich gastronomy thanks to its diversity of products, and the fact that the Atlantic that surrounds its coasts has a vast variety of fish, which in combination with the land, wines and agricultural produce supplies an unrivalled culinary diversity. In general the restaurants in Lisbon are of excellent quality, but here we would like to provide a guide of the three best restaurants in the Portuguese capital so that you can try some of the best food in Lisbon.
The Café de Sao Bento, situated on 212, Rua de Sao Bento is famous in the city for offering the best meat in Lisbon. Here, you can enjoy the most delicious meat with a varied combination of sauces that lends it a unique flavour to this tasty and tender food product that only this restaurant can achieve. However, Café de Sao Bento not only offers excellent meat but also a strong selection of Portuguese wines that complete this eminently Portuguese culinary experience using products from the earth. They are also very friendly and attentive, and the price is relative to the quality of the food served.
