The Decadente
This restaurant on the ground floor of one of Lisbon's new breed of hostels offers interesting dishes made from excellent Portuguese ingredients, whipped up by a capable young chef. The funky decor and vibe help to make it popular with both locals and tourists, so it's worth booking ahead. The back patio is sheltered from sun and wind, and has a retractable roof for when it rains. Of the snacks, the tomato soup and pica pau (marinated strips of beef) are good. This is a nice spot for Sunday brunch, a mid-afternoon snack or a cocktail. On the hostel's roof, the pricier Insólito (closed Mon & Sun) has a breathtaking view across to the castle and a menu that ranges from oysters and carpaccio to sophisticated vegetarian fare. The bar is open from 6pm, the restaurant from 7pm.

O nome, na minha opinião, é original, mas pouco lisongeiro. Já visitei este restaurante uma vez, só não repito porque o meu orçamento mensal normalmente só dá para uma tasca por mês. Mas aqui também pode sempre beber um copo antes de se atirar à noite das ruas do Bairro Alto.
