Lisbon has some of the best-value cafés and restaurants of any European city, serving large portions of good Portuguese food at sensible prices. A set menu (ementa turística) at lunch or dinner will get you a three-course meal for around €15, though you can eat for even less than this by sticking to the ample main dishes and choosing the daily specials. Seafood is widely available – there’s an entire central street, Rua das Portas de Santo Antão that specializes in it. Options for vegetarians are somewhat limited, though Tão and Terra are worth seeking out. Indian and Chinese restaurants also offer good vegetarian options, as do some of the museum cafés, such as at the Centro de Arte Moderna at the Gulbenkian.
