  • If you love food do not miss this place. Imagine a food market of all the best food put together! I could come back to this place every day for a week and be spoilt for choices. We had a few cod cakes...  read more »

  • Is next to the market, is well organized and clean. There's plenty of food options, but I think it's expensive because it's like a food court, but has some restaurants with tables in separate sections. The prices are a little above average. It is opposite the point where the electric part for Bethlehem.

  • Great selection of food from multiple different vendors. Lots of seating available and great for a lunch time treat. Plenty of alcohol selections too. The only downside is that there's too much choice! Great atmosphere and would certainly visit again.
  • Good place to eat out. Great variety and a lot of space. The main problem with it is that you can't drink a bottle you bought from their wine shops inside the establishment to force you to purchase glasses or bottles of wine from the restaurants at a much higher price. I get that they ought to have clients spend more money but they should have thought about it before, instead of suddenly cutting consumers of that service.
  • Great environment with a variety of food-shops and restaurants, suitable for every taste. The offer includes traditional portuguese food, tartar, italian, asian, sea food, drinks, desserts, and more. Besides eating, you can also find some artisanal shops. It implies "self-service", so finding a seat after picking your plate on the counter might be difficult due to the large number of people attracted to this iconic spot. Since it's a famous attraction, eating here can be a bit more expensive.
  • This is a very pleasant foodie destination, because it is fun, friendly, casual, and there is such a wide variety of high quality food options. We walked here after first arriving in Lisbon and found perfect snacks to tide us over until mealtime. But it would be easy to have a good, casual meal here too.
  • This market is located right across the street from the train, metro and ferry station/port. The market offers different cousines mainly focused on the fresh fish and seafood, but also asian, italian hamburgers and different pastry, coffee, wine shop and coctail bar. Other part of the market is dedicated to fresh vegetables and fruits before noon and to the flea market during the weekends. The market can get a bit crowded during the busy times. If you want to taste the local cousine it is a must see. The maret also offers cooking school.
