There ‘s a gem in Lisbon with spectacular city views from the top of a shopping center: rooftop restaurant/ bar ‘Topo’ (Top) overlooking popular square Martim Moniz.
View from restaurant/bar ‘Topo’ : square Martim Moniz Lisbon & Castle of São Jorge
Located on the top floor of the shopping center at square Martim Moniz, this space was once a retail warehouse of Chinese products now being a modern restaurant / bar. Perfect place for a lunch or a late afternoon with cocktails, snacks and good music.
Mafalda Malafaya, Managing Director ‘Topo’ restaurant/bar Lisbon
The staff is wonderful, every time I return I am greeted with a big smile!
Being there for the first time, coming out of the elevator entering ‘Topo’ s space, the views are overwhelming! Everybody is making pictures before sitting down, just like I did 🙂 🙂
Restaurant/bar ‘Topo’ near Mouraria area Lisbon: lunch with friend Erika Reusens
Also the menu is surprising: we started our lunch with Tosta Gambas alioli (toast with garlic prawns): € 6, Tártaro de novilho (calf beef tartare) € 14.00, Tártaro de atum (tuna tartare) € 12.00, bottle of white wine (Pinta Negra) € 15, small bottle of water € 1.50, coffee (bica) € 1.50. Our bill for 2 persons: € 50:00.
A small remark: I also tasted the Prego (a popular sandwich in Portugal) with tuna (€ 11:00), but the bread was baked too hard and (for my taste) the french fries are too salty.
