    Bairro Alto is for sure the place to head for a few drinks at night.

    Dozens of bars and cheap prices.


    For food I would recommend that you simply look for the traditional little cafes/restaurants around the city and then look for signs that says "Prato do dia" (dish of the day).

    That is usually quite ok food for little money.

    I find I can quite easily stuff myself for 5 to 7 euros in Lisbon by opting for that.

    You can find nice small, cheap restaurants around Bairro Alto, downtown Lisbon. The same area is a lively spot during the night, where you can find a lot of bars.

    Hi Bart,
    Bairro Alto is the place for drinks. There are hundreds of bars there! We really liked Mahjong Bar.

    We stayed in the Anjos neighborhood and tryied several "Pastelarias", small restaurants that serves "Pequeno almoço" (breakfast) & "Almoço" (lunch). As Claus mentioned ask for the "Prato do dia". Back in May the prices ranged from Euro 4,50 till Euro 7,00.
    Our picks in Anjos area : Pastelaria Tebas & Brick Cafe.

    Suggest to take a boat from Cais do Sodre to Cacilhas, it's a beatiful place and you can choose a restaurant to have a nice and fresh seafood. Nice ones: Restaurante Ponto Final (cacilhas) and Restaurante Atira-te Ao Rio, Lda. Both have amazing views !
    In Portugal you MUST try the "Sardinha na brasa" , charcoal grilled sardines, the " Arroz de polvo" , rice and octopus and any dish with "bacalhau" ,cod fish.

    Enjoy!!!

    You can try http://en.lifecooler.com/lifecooleren/pesquisa.aspx?tipo=5

    You can either eat at Centro Comercial Vasco da Gama and have a drink at the bars near the river.

    Or eat at Armazéns do Chiado and have some drinks at Bairro Alto.

    Or eat at Praça Duque de Saldanha and go to some scattered nearby bars (cf. http://www.lifecooler.com/dossiers/noite/bares-classicos-de-lisboa/167/).

    All good answers! I would say definitely eat at The Decadente Restaurante & Bar inside of The Independente Hostel & Suites...it used to be an old Swiss Embassy and has great Portuguese food with a modern twist. YUM!

    We also loved Aura down by the water! It's such a fun city. Explore Bairro Alto for sure.
