Bus Stop
“Probably one of, if not my favourite neighbourhood of central Lisbon. Slightly removed from the main drag but still in the middle of it all. Great restaurant and array of shops surrounding the main garden square and just of it. Go and explore and immerse yourself in the area around it. Just naming a few places such as: Embaixada, Casa Pau-Brasil, Cevicheria, Pavilhão Chines, Tapisco, Memmo, 2 quiosques on the square, etc etc, etc!”

Botanical Garden
“Warning - it's quite neglected. Yet, precisely for that, you can feel as visiting the Sleeping Beauty's castle backyard. Every plant is a bit mysterious and nostalgic. You'll find charming spots like the butterfly-house or the bamboos alee. The botanical garden's staff is very friendly. You can read, take photos at your ease, listen to your favorite song, practice Tai-Chi, eat your snack. No worries.”

Public Art
“It is only 1,9 km from hotel Vila Queirós. From Praça dos Restauradores, the funicular climbs up Calçada da Glória towards the Bairro Alto neighbourhood. It’s a fun ride, and in a couple of minutes you’ll be looking at Lisbon’s rooftops from the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara at the top of the hill.”

Park
“All of Lisbon's lookout points are romantic, but none more than this one, looking over all of downtown towards the castle and the river. It's a landscaped terrace with busts of historical figures, a fountain, and kiosk cafés from where you may sit and admire the beauty of the city. Going up and down the hill next to the terrace is the Gloria funicular, and across the street is the bar of the Port Wine Institute, where you may sample all types of Portugal's famous drink.”

Peruvian Restaurant

“Traditional Peruvian dish made of raw fish cured in lemon or lime juice, also has a Portuguese version here with cod. Alternatively, there are tacos and empanadas. To wash it all down, there’s pisco sour, a drink also from Peru. A Cevicheria was considered one of the best ceviche place in the world.”

Shopping Mall
“A 'palacete' or small palace (very small as far as palaces are concerned), which was once home to a wealthy Portuguese family and has now been converted a series of small design shops and a restaurant. Great place to shopping, grab a bit or perhaps just a quick drink!”

Restaurant
$$$$
“CUISINE: Portuguese fusion • This restaurant was born in 2009, with a unique tasting menu, where the irreverent chef Ljubomir Stanisic shows his most authorial side, in original creations. In this laboratory of his, each dish is a voyage through Portuguese flavours – working more and more closely with national suppliers - and, for now, there are only 30 seats available for you to get to know it. Soon, with no set date yet, the 100 Maneiras moves to another number on the same street and is likely to bring some novelties with it - if there is someone who likes to surprise, it's Ljubomir Stanisic.”

Steakhouse

“CUISINE: Meat • Indecisive people, this restaurant will be a torment for you: there are several pieces of meat, from the matured entrecôte to Black Angus brisket, two ways to eat it, on bread or on the plate, and four possible side dishes. To complicate matters, the burgers are delicious (the cut of meat is also chosen by you), it is foolish to ignore the entrees - the provolone cheese and the grilled sausage are drool worthy - and there are even several rooms inside for you to decide where to steat. Not to mention the terrace, facing the Jardim Botânico (botanical garden).”
