Bonjardim, Lisbon

It's a local favorite since the 1950s, and the word has spread to guidebooks, which recommend the so-called "king of chickens" as the place to enjoy Portugal's famous spit-roast chicken in Lisbon. The chicken is served slightly spicy, with French fries and salad on the side, but you may always add some extra piri-piri sauce.
In addition to the famous chicken there are several options of traditional Portuguese cuisine.

It was Lisbon's most ambitious restaurant when it opened in 2005, and was soon recognized with a Michelin star. It's found at the top of Edward VII Park, and offers a panoramic view across the park and the city.
The innovative cuisine, using some rare and seasonal products, is served in a sophisticated, contemporary space. The German-born chef has worked at a 2-Michelin-starred restaurant in Spain so you'll find a strong influence of Mediterranean flavors.

A Lisbon institution since it opened in 1936 as a German beer hall, it became an upscale restaurant in the 1960s serving Portuguese cuisine and specializing in seafood.

JncQuoi Avenida, Lisbon

Three floors of the Tivoli Theater were divided into a restaurant, bar, gourmet store, and men's boutique bringing together several luxury labels. The name is pronounced "je ne sais quoi," and the place does have a certain Parisian touch, starting at the entrance with a corner of the French luxury bakery Ladurée, with its famous colorful macaroons.
It’s a destination for any time of the day, from lunch to 5 o’clock tea and dinner. On the ground floor is the "delibar,” a gourmet store and bar serving light meals accompanied by wine or cocktails, and downstairs is the boutique. Upstairs is the restaurant, for which you need to book a table in advance. It has an open kitchen, where Portuguese and international dishes are reinterpreted by the chef, and a curious life-size skeleton of a velociraptor dinosaur in the middle of the room. The entire décor respects the elegant and sophisticated style of the building, with marble and mirrored glass, and preserves the old frescoes.

It’s the most recommended restaurant in Lisbon for authentic Portuguese cuisine, attracting locals and tourists -- plus many national and international celebrities, as seen on the photos covering the walls.
