The best restaurants with live music in Lisbon

Here in Lisbon, we fancy a nice environment where we can just relax, hang out with friends and family, while enjoying a delicious meal. And music as well, is part of our culture. Scattered throughout Lisbon there are several restaurants where you can enjoy your meal with live music - whether it be Cape Verdean rhythms, bossa nova or the nostalgic melodies of the 80s and 90s. For music lovers who can’t eat without music or for those who like to accompany memories to a soundtrack (even more so, live), Time Out chose five places to eat and at the same time, attend a concert in Lisbon.

Where to eat in Lisbon the best bitoques

You might have never heard about this dish – it is a Lisbon original, after all. Bitoque is a small fried steak served with an egg on top and chips on the side. It is a lifesaver of sorts for many Lisboners – especially those having lunch with kids or with an hangover. They’re sold at most traditional restaurants. These are some of our favourites.

Portuguese wines are high in quality but low in price, and Lisbon 
is the only capital in the world located in a homonymous wine-producing region. Astonishingly, there isn’t an abundance of good places in town serving wine by the glass. Luckily, they are increasing in number and calibre. Here are some of our favourites.

The best spots for craft beer in Lisbon

Craft beer took a while to settle in Lisbon, but we can't live without it any more. Very few people now think of craft beer as a fad - instead, it is a natural evolution of our relationship with beer. More and more places offer at least one brand and two or three varieties of craft beer. And then you have specialized locations where punters go specifically to enjoy some nice barley nectars. Restaurants and brewpubs, bars or stores, these are the finest places to enjoy a craft beer. Just take your pick.
