In terms of Hotels, we recommend you stay in one of these two luxury and high-class hotels: Myriad by Sana and Four Seasons Ritz. Next, to the Tejo River, Myriad by SANA Hotel is an icon of Modern Lisbon Hospitality. With a contemporary design and a range of unique services, this Five-Star Hotel redefines the concept of what a luxury hotel by providing to its guests the best quality experience accompanied by a privileged view on the beautiful Tejo River. The Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon is located next to Parque Eduardo VII, one of the largest green spaces in Lisbon, and less than 10 minutes walk from the trendy Avenida da Liberdade, within walking distance of the São Jorge Castle. Considered as one of the Top Hotels of the Portuguese Capital, the Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon is one of the largest Landmarks of the city by the Lisbon Community and by all those who visit this amazing city.
For something to eat you should stop by Belcanto. Awarded with two stars of the Michelin guide, the Belcanto first opened its doors in 1958 in Chiado. Its privileged location in Lisbon’s historic center, the discreet service and its refined cuisine, quickly conquered the elites of the Portuguese capital. The Belcanto, by the hand of chef José Avillez, opened in 2012, with a completely new face. That same year, the restaurant was awarded a star of the Michelin guide and, in 2014, was gained its second one, being the first restaurant in Lisbon with this incredibly high distinction.
For a more traditional meal, you can try ALMA. This restaurant presents itself as a fine dining restaurant: authors cuisine, served informally in a sophisticated setting. The restaurant aims to be an innovative space, not only with the approaches it proposes, but also to simplify and break down some basic rules of the service, which not only is thought out in detail but also highly relaxed. For the chef Henrique Sá Pessoa there is just the good kitchen and the bad kitchen
