When you visit Lisbon , don’t miss the opportunity to visit Cacilhas, the south bank of the river Tagus (Tejo). The views on downtown Lisbon and the 25 April Bridge are amazing! Take the ferry from Lisbons’ Cais do Sodré (every 10 minutes, weekend every 20 min.) to the other side of the river Tagus, a 10 min trip. (Return ticket : ca. 4 euro).
Riverfront terrace restaurant ‘Ponto Final’, Cacilhas, amazing view downtown Lisbon. September 2017
As you get off the ferry, it takes about 15 minutes to walk along the river to Restaurant ‘Ponto Final’, after passing lots of ruinous warehouses.

Cacilhas used to be a bustling area for a long long time when shipping and fishing were still major economic activities in Portugal.
Restaurant Ponto Final’s terrace at lunchtime in June
You will love the typical Portuguese menu. Fish, meat and great Portuguese wines.
€20/25 a person incl. wine. Quite reasonable prices if you consider the view! If you’re not in the mood for food, just relax, order a coffee or a glass of wine (bottle from € 7.50) and enjoy the scenery.

Restaurant ‘Ponto Final’ Lisbon May 2015: Sophie Lever and Jurre Schöttelndreier
Very good Portuguese cuisine. Especialidade da Casa (specialty of the house): arroz de Tamboril (rice with monkfish), Entrecosto Assado no Forno (roasted ribs) and Peixe Fresco Grelhado (grilled fresh fish). The wine list has a quality assortment of Portuguese wines.

It can be rather windy along the river Tagus, so don’t forget a sweater in case you like to have dinner here. Or, order a bottle of wine and a starter, enjoy it outside for at least a glass, then move inside for the main dish.
A warm summer evening while the sun is fading….whow!
Restaurant ‘Ponto Final’ is a perfect romantic location for a great dinner overlooking Lisbon by night. Make sure that you book a table outside in advance.
Restaurant ‘Atira-te ao Rio’, great view old town Lisbon 🙂
The nearby restaurant ‘Atira-te ao Rio’, Portuguese, Brasilian and international cuisine, is also a great place to enjoy your lunch or dinner!
Cacilhas and the famous Cristo Rei statue
The elevator to reach the Cristo Rei statue (1 euro returnticket) is situated quite close to restaurant Ponto Final .

Stunning views! Close to the elevator.
From Lisbon, Cais do Sodré ( Lisbon’s major bus, metro & trainstation) to Cacilhas, the other side of the river Tagus and vice versa
During winter season in Lisbon this place is also worth a visit! But it can be rather cold and windy. (sunset video). Picture: Loek Polack
