Martinho Da Arcada

Martinho Da Arcada is one of Lisbon’s oldest restaurants, with Fernando Pessoa as the most illustrious regular guest. Enjoy traditional Portuguese cuisine in a noisy dining room or on a pavement table in the arcade. This is a beautiful tiled café with price-worthy food.


In Lisbon, you can find both modern and sophisticated restaurants as well as simple and very traditional ones. As you can expect, you will find the strongest Portuguese ambience in the simple and traditional places. Small and unpretentious restaurants can be found all over town and do not require booking. At most of the restaurants below, however, it is safest to book a table. Many restaurants are closed on Sundays or Mondays.
