The most important tips for a visit at Lissabon:

  • Prepare yourself. Before you go, write down places where you want to go. Not all of the restaurants are familiar with glutenfree. For example you can print this blog, so you have all the informatie with you when your traveling.
  • Making a reservation is not always necessary. We only did it once. Most of the time you can make a reservation by e-mail or just walk by in the afternoon.
  • In Portugal, they eat later dan we’re in Holland used to. Most of the restaurant are open for diner art 7.30 pm, but are also opened in the afternoon for lunch.
  • In a lot of restaurants the staff speaks English and you can also get a Menu in English. Just ask!

La Trattoria
When you compare to other restaurants in Lisbon, La Trattoria is a bit more expensive, the price in this restaurant can be compared to a restaurant in Holland. La Trattoria is very well known with glutenfree eating, on the menu you’ll find symbols that tell you what is glutenfree. For example they have glutenfree bread, pasta and chocolate mousse. The service is very good, all of the waiters are very well informed of the glutenfree options. Tip: a bottle of house wine is not expensive and very tasty!

Open Brasserie Mediterrânica
The restaurant Open Brasserie is part of a hotel, it doesn’t make is less cosy! The service is a bit messy (sometimes they forget something), but very well informed about glutenfree eating. in this restaurants the glutenfree courses are also signed on the menu with a symbol, there is not so much to choose from. By the way, they also serve lactosefree meals. The restaurant also has glutenfree bread and you’ll get a nice amuse of the house!

Telepizza
You can compare Telepizza with Domino’s in Holland. It’s a fast food restaurant, not cosy, but they do have glutenfree pizza’s. There are two options: bacon and pepperoni. We tried both. The pizza’s are not really special, but o.k. for a quick meal.

The waiting-/preparation time varies between the locations: from 30 minutes up to 2 hours. Tip: when you’re in the neighborhood, just walk by and check, or order your pizza for later on the day. Then it will be ready when you’re ready to eat!

La Crêperie da Ribeira > Closed!
A piece of France in Lisbon! La Crêperie da Ribeira is a very cosy place where you can eat savory crepes (galettes) and sweet crepes. In particular the galettes are really nice! The sweet crepes are also nice but they are made with the same batter, which is more tasty for the galettes. We really recommend it!

H3 New Hamburgology
You find H3 in the shoppingcentre Amoreiras (also at other places!) – een nice shoppingcentre with a lot of places to eat. At H3 they have burgers in all sorts en tastes. Tasty, cheap en special – because all of the burgers are served without a bread. You can choose from a lot of different toppings and you’ll get the burger served with chips or rice. You’ll eat in a sort of foodhall, not the most cosy restaurant in Lisbon but a good options for a good lunch or dinner in between shopping!
