We love to eat! Almost even more than practising acroyoga or yoga! So, the best way for us to transmit this love is by sharing our favourite places in Lisbon city centre to eat. If you want to check places out of the city or in Portugal, please check our other post "where to eat around Lisbon: Cascais, Costa da Caparica...". We hope to see you in one of our classes on the beach and retreats and maybe share a good meal together. Enjoy!
For VEGAN EXPERIENCES, please check our other blog post (click here).
We have no partnership with any of these places, we even don't know the owners. This is just a personal list, based on our own experience living in Portugal, the several advice of friends and our willingness to try new places and food.
Some of the restaurants below may include vegetarian/vegan options, but for exclusively veggie places look for our post: where to eat veggie in Lisbon & Cascais.
