No Host Dinner Restaurants
BAHR 
This restaurant is full. There are no more seats available.
The latest culinary project of Chef Nuno Mendes, one of Portugal’s most highly acclaimed and internationally renowned chefs. He spent over two decades working in New York and California before moving to London, where he turned Shoreditch into a culinary destination and Michelin-starred restaurant Viajante. The menu celebrates Portuguese cuisine with dishes like percebes and black pork and vegetables from Alentejo. Says Mendes, “BAHR is grown up but casual.”
 
Gambrinus 
Reservation for 7 at 8:00pm
Without a doubt, the most famous traditionally Portuguese restaurant in Lisbon, with a long established and well-earned reputation for excellent food and impeccable service in a club-type environment. It is sure to provide diners a truly memorable experience.
 
GoJuu 
This restaurant is full. There are no more seats available.
GoJuu honors traditional Japanese gastronomy, its masters and its followers. GoJuu is a tribute to its first ambassador Itamae, to the memory of his first restaurant AYA, to its most frequent patrons, to the sushimen that have learned their skills with the master and to its staff. It was the first Japanese restaurant in Lisbon to earn a coveted listing in the Michelin Guide.
 
Reservation for 7 at 8:00pm
A Lisbon newcomer in an exquisite setting, tracing the influence of Portugal’s 17th century discoveries around the world, especially in Asia. Its expansive menu extends to Indian, Thai, Chinese and Japanese gastronomic delicacies.  
 
Prado
This restaurant is full. There are no more seats available.
A very talented awarded young Chef leads this new culinary project, featuring innovative Portuguese cuisine. Energy and enthusiasm extend to every corner of the menu. Fresh seasonal ingredients form the basis upon which the chef works his creative wonders. Each dish is prepared to perfection, from smoked Iberico pork lardo on toast with florina apple, to black scabbard with nasturtium flowers and heritage radish. A truly exciting dining experience.
 
Ramiro 
This restaurant is full. There are no more seats available.
The late Anthony Bourdain revealed this secret to foreigners in his celebrated TV culinary show, “No Reservations.” Exceptional seafood served in a boisterous and joyful environment. If you’re a seafood aficionado, this is one place you most certainly will not want to miss. And if you’re one of the fortunate few, you just may get to jump the queue into a reserved table for a set time.
 
Solar dos Presuntos 
Reservation for 7 at 8:00pm
A Lisbon favorite, where Portuguese food and traditional dishes are concerned. An exceptional dining value in a very lively and spirited ambiance. The walls are festooned with signed photographs and caricatures of popular Portuguese actors, writers, journalists, politicians, footballers and, of course, bullfighters, for whom Solar dos Presuntos is one of their favorite haunts. Portugal at its best.
