Vegetarian Lisbon

@nesuxi at PSI

According to HappyCow, an online directory of vegan and vegetarian restaurants and health food stores, Lisbon is Europe’s second most veg-friendly city. Their survey of European countries has revealed that the Portuguese capital comes second only to Amsterdam in terms of how easy it is to find dining options for vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians.

To make it easier for you to find just what you’re looking for, we have compiled our very own selection of plant-based restaurants that offer mouth-watering dinners, freshly-pressed juices, and delicious brunches, along with a little vegan secret…shhh!

The Food Temple transforms eating into a pleasurable experience that is bursting with colours and flavours – even more so if you make your meal a picnic on the stairs in the square outside during the warmer weather.


Make sure you leave room for dessert at Ao 26 Vegan Food Project!
It would be a crime to leave without trying this avocado lime cheesecake.


Fragoleto has a little secret: their salted caramel, vanilla and hazelnut and chocolate ice creams are vegan-friendly, too!


Treat yourself to a weekend brunch at Aloha Café
Their cuisine is influenced by macrobiotic nutrition, their bread is organic and all their desserts are sugar-free!


Order a freshly-pressed fruit juice at the House of Wonders
and enjoy it on the best terrace in Cascais.


In addition to the great choice of plant-based eateries in the city, many of the organic supermarkets – such as Miosótis or Purobio – have small cafés where they also serve food.

If you are looking for fresh, organic fruit and veg during your stay, take your pick between these municipal markets: Mercado da Ribeira, Mercado Biológico do Príncipe Real or Mercado de Campo de Ourique.

Don’t forget that Hotel Gat Rossio serves exquisite, freshly-squeezed fruit juices, too, so make your way down to the heart of the city and enjoy one on our exclusive terrace in the Baixa neighbourhood!
