The south bank of the river Tagus is my favorite place in Lisbon: views on downtown Lisbon and the 25 April Bridge are amazing!
Riverfront terrace restaurant ‘Ponto Final’, Cacilhas, amazing view downtown Lisbon. September 2017
Take the ferry from Lisbons’ Cais do Sodré (every 10 minutes, weekend every 20 min.) to the other side of the river Tagus: Cacilhas, a 10 min trip. (Return ticket : cheap)
Time table ferry from Lisbon Cais do Sodre to area Cacihas and vice versa
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.
You will love the typical Portuguese menu. Fish, meat and great Portuguese wines.
Restaurant Ponto Final Lisbon, September 2019
€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.
