If you visit Lisbon, a 10-minutes ferry trip to the other side of the Tagus river is really worth it. Restaurant Atira-te ao Rio is one of my favorites, a small paradise! 🙂

Right next to the elevator to the Cristo Rei Statue, restaurant Atira-te ao Rio (litt. ‘throw yourself into the river’) is a space blessed by fabolous views over old town Lisbon. Don’t forget to bring your camera! 🙂
Restaurant Atira-te ao Rio, Cais do Ginjal Lisbon & friend Josephine Lucassen (official tourist guide), March 12, 2020
The menu is typically Portuguese: dishes with good presentation and tasty. We ordered one of my favorite dishes, salada com polvo (octopus salad), and shrimps. Bill for 2 persons around 50 euro.

These pictures are made in September on a beautiful sunny day, but in wintertime there’s also the possibility to enjoy the views of old town Lisbon inside .

In wintertime the large windows allow the view to be equally (almost as) good as outside. The restaurant features an indoor room with a burning stove and a terrace with heaters and blankets.
