Tucked into its historic streets and alleyways are a multitude of dining options: here’s our guide to 10 of the best.

Belém Bar Cafe

This chic lounge cafe is arguably the trendiest spot in Belém, attracting wealthy, young patrons from the city.

The restaurant is high-end, but if you fancy bumping shoulders with Lisbon’s in-crowd and dancing the night away to live DJ performances be sure to pop in to “BBC.”
