Saved for Next Time

Pedro, our favorite waiter at our favorite Lisbon coffeshop, Copenhagen Coffee Lab, gave us a list of his favorite places in Lisbon. Unfortunately, he didn’t give us the list until a couple of days before we left, so we’ll have to save most of them for next time. Here’s the list, just as he gave it to us:

Museums

MAAT, the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology; Pedro’s favorite museum, but we never went.

Restaurants

Muralha – try the Bacalhau à Brás; in Alfama

A Merendinha do Arco (Portuguese Tasca, Gambas à Guilho are amazing) on Rossio St.

Coffee Shops

The Hill

Hello, Kristof

Comoba (overpriced for Lisbon, but really nice food)

A Janela da Voz Do Operário

Manteigaria – best custard tart [Pasteis de Nata]

Nivà (Principe Real)

Davvero (Alfama, Cais do Sodré)

Best Beaches

[Pedro is a good-looking 20-something Brazilian guy, so we’ll call him the expert on this.]

Portinho da Arrábida

Galapinhos

Cabana Do Pescador (Costa da Caparica, best sunsets)

Ribeira Do Cavalo (Best one, but with a 15 minute trail walk)

Paulo, our host, also had a list of recommendations, most of which we made, but a couple we missed:

Solar Do Vinho Do Porto – the place to go to taste Ports

Mafra National Palace – enormous palace of João V, in Mafra, a 45 minute bus ride from Lisbon

So that’s the starting list for our next trip – or yours. Boa Viagem!
