A Vegan’s Guide to Eating Out in Lisbon

May 8, 2016

The Capital of Portugal is famous for fishing, trams and tiles. It is one of the cheapest cities to eat out in Europe, but unfortunately it is not famous for it’s vegan food. Luckily, there are plenty of amazing vegan eateries in Lisbon as long as you know where to find them.

PSIPSI is one of the most beautiful vegetarian restaurants in Portugal. The restaurant is in the middle of a garden inside a glass pavilion and is perfect for splashing out on a romantic lunch. Unfortunately, PSI mostly caters to vegetarians but there is still a fair few vegan options on the menu to choose from.Price: €€€ (Pricey)

The Food TempleAlthough difficult to find, The Food Temple is one of the most incredible vegan restaurants I’ve been to. The food was decadent and delicious, and everything here is vegan! You usually pick one soup to start, choose from three tapas options, one main and a dessert. Order all three tapas if you’re sharing, because you’re going to want to sample everything they have to offer.Price: €€ (Moderate)

Beco do Jasmim 18, 1100-289 Lisboa, Portugal

Miss SaigonMiss Saigon is another one of the more elegant restaurants in Lisbon with a menu of over 700 items from all around the world narrowed down to three a day. The majority of the time all items on the menu will be vegan and you can order a plate of all three items and a salad which I highly recommend. Try one of the vegan desserts, too.Price: €€€ (Pricey)

BioBio is one of the macrobiotic vegetarian restaurants in Lisbon with a couple of vegan options. I’d highly recommend Bio if you’re on a budget or would love some healthy, wholesome food that isn’t too pretentious.

Friendly FoodFriendly Food is another inexpensive, macrobiotic restaurant in Lisbon where everything is 100% vegan. Here they have freshly made juices and a menu of a couple of items, all made by the owner behind the counter. It’s a small, intimate place but definitely worth checking out if you want something simple, healthy and you’re on a budget.Price: € (Inexpensive)
