A Travessa
© Arlindo Camacho

A Lisbon mainstay, sometimes overlooked, A Travessa has several features worthy of mention. What's there to eat? Belgian-inspired cuisine with a French touch and some Portuguese dishes. Who will you meet? A few tourists, including celebrities – John Malkovitch sightings have been reported – and residents of Lapa, the nearby district. What should you wear? Nothing in particular, but don't be too casual.

Time Out tips:

– An old-fashioned VW van brings customers to the restaurant.

– Try a dish exclusive to the building: partridge à la Bernardas Convent.

– The best tables are the ones next to the cloister.
