Monte Mar Lisbon

It’s a famous restaurant in Cascais and it also had a stand in the Ribeira Market, so it was only a matter of time before it opened another spot on the waterfront in central Lisbon (west of Cais do Sodré’s ferry station). It’s in a converted warehouse with two levels, but the place to be is the terrace outside. It features an industrial-chic décor in dark tones, and has seating for about 200, inside and out. Famous for its fresh fish and seafood dishes, it serves lunch and dinner with a view towards 25 de Abril Bridge, including from the interior through large windows. One of the most popular dishes is the hake fillets with cockle rice, but there’s always the fish of the day, grilled or baked, in addition to the lobsters and crabs.
It also has a small bar, serving cocktails and gins.
