Traditional Lisbon Restaurants​

Lisbon's old, tile-decorated restaurants offering traditional Portuguese food should be on top of your list.

Or maybe just having a coffee in one of the historic downtown cafés, where famous writers, poets and politicians have met and exchanged views on country, people, culture and policies.

Great food and drinks, tradition and history, and superb scenarios of marble and tiles for your Lisbon photos and posts, what else could you wish for?
