Best Culinary Lisbon restaurants suitable for groups and events

As we provide group travel services to Portugal  this article attempts to help large groups find the perfect restaurants for their events in Lisbon. For  personalized help please contact us.

Why Lisbon for groups?

Lisbon is a popular destination for groups  of all types, corporate or private. Its relatively low priced / high quality restaurants being just one of the reasons.
However for larger groups spaces tend to get tight quite fast.

It is  a city build on the remnants of a medieval past that determines much of its modern character.
Small winding streets that climb the hills it was founded on, narrow thick walled buildings build in a time when housing formats where relatively small in comparison to modern standards.
Erected to protect against heat, winter cold and heavy storms, small spaces, few windows and thick walls where the standard.
This created much of Lisbon’s architectural beauty and appeal that luckily we can appreciate to this day.

However this has limited the possibility for large restaurants. Specifically in the center of Lisbon, finding a restaurant that can accommodate your group can be a challenge.
