Bar Entretanto (rooftop bar), Hotel do Chiado, Lisbon, Portugal

[Food: They are a restaurant too, but I haven't eaten there.]

Wine: Full-bar menu with a wine list of good producers from the main wine regions of Portugal plus SAGRES on tap-YUM!

My take: A favorite for sunset drinks. Trendy. Scene is locals plus tourists. A little pricey for the view and because it is a hotel...More on Bar Entretanto.


Largo Restaurante, Lisbon, Portugal

Food: This is what I'd call a "power lunch" place. The setting is stunning. A former convent turned into luxurious dining spaces with giant aquariums filled with jellyfish as the artwork. The food stands up to the setting too. It's upscale Portuguese.

Wine: They have a menu for gin cocktails--so it's calling itself more of a cocktail joint but has a nice wine list of all the right regions and good producers.

My take: It's one of the trendy, more expensive spots. You can get a great deal on the lunch menu so that's when I prefer to go. More on Largo

Noobai Cafe, Lisbon, Portugal

My take: This is one of my coffee/light breakfast go-tos. A beautiful spot on the Santa Catarina Miradouro (belvedere) to sit in the morning light and enjoy the view with toast and coffee. It is also a good spot for a sunset drink or a nightcap! More on Noobai
