One of the best ways to spend a late afternoon in Lisbon, is to seat in the esplanade at Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcantara, drinking an aperitif and enjoying the view. From this lookout point, you see St. Jorge’s castle and the Tagus river amidst the swatches of white and orange that color the city canvas.

Once the sun gets tired, it’s time to head across the street to a restaurant called Decadente. There, you find an inviting atmosphere and a menu full of delicious offerings, such as watercress soup, fish rice, and braised pork cheeks. The food is carefully prepared and beautifully presented. And the restaurant’s great vibe makes the dining experience a wonderful finale for a day in Lisbon.

The Decadente is located at Rua de São Pedro de Alcântara 81, in Bairro Alto. Tel. 21 346 13 81, email Reservations are highly recommended. Click here for the restaurant’s web site.
