How many times have you wondered where to have a late dinner in Lisbon? 🍲 Either because you left work late, you’re planning a late night date or wanna go out afterwards without that big gap between eating and (heavily) drinking 🍽🍻😎. Besides being open until late, all these places have an unpretentious service and delicious food. Find below our 12 late night restaurant suggestions in Lisbon, in no particular order:
#1. Pitaria by José Avillez
The best of it: This place is all about Middle-Eastern flavours since the star dish is the Pita 🥙. We consider it kinda high-end street food as it belongs to the Michelin-starred Chef José Avillez ⭐, the food is totally grab-and-go style and insanely delicious and properly cooked with the best fresh ingredients. It has 7 different Pitas to choose from (including a vegetarian one 🍃). They can be served with fried potatoes with za’atar or fried sweet potatoes (or even without the bread – just as a salad 🥗). It’s a small place (for around 20 people seated) but extremely well located, with great cocktails too 🍸🍹 and full of positive and chilled vibes from the waiters.
Open until: 2:00AM on Friday/Saturday and 1:00AM on weekdays/Sunday
Location: In the heart of Lisbon downtown in Chiado

O @joseavillez não para mesmo. Na semana passada fui conhecer o seu novo espaço do Chiado, a Pitaria (um fast food inspirado no Médio Oriente). As pitas são absolutamente deliciosas (recomendo a Greek e a Arais, incríveis). Ponto alto: a batata doce frita com raspas de laranja – já quero voltar só por conta disso 🙈❤️😋Alguém já foi? #pitaria #joseavillez #lisboa #portugal #grupoavillez
#2. Crispy Mafya
The best of it: Already sensing the smell of fried chicken?🐔 You should – because this is exactly what you’ll find at Crispy Mafya. All fried and spicy 🔥 from chicken burgers, chicken wings, tenders to chicken salads 🥗. But the one you can’t miss is the chicken waffle burger 🍔💯 with maple syrup on the side. From their side dishes, go for the baked sweet potato fries and the mac’n cheese 👊. Plus: its New Orleans and New York vibe 🗽, baby!
Open until: 2:00AM from Thursday to Saturday; 12:00AM from Sunday to Wednesday – closed on Monday
Location: Amidst Príncipe Real hipster neighbourhood
The best of it: We already talked about this place by selecting it as one of the 5 spots in Lisbon that will make you feel really cool. Still wondering why?🤔 It has a really chill vibe ✌, a great hand-picked wine list 🍷 and some tasty 🤤 (and cheap) portuguese sharing-appetizers such as Bulhão Pato sauce clams, Pica pau (fried pork meat with pickles & chili 🌶), chicken gizzards with spicy red peppers sauce and so on. Their cheese boards 🧀 and cold meats are definitely a must too.
Open until: 3:00AM on Friday/Saturday; 2:00AM on Sunday and from Tuesday to Thursday – closed on Monday
Location: Right in the middle of Bairro Alto (perfect to start that pub crawl you always wanted to do 🍻)

#4. Boteco da Dri
The best of it: It’s one of the newest babies in town – it opened in August this year – and showcases the best of Brazilian 💚💛 flavours, sometimes mixed with the Portuguese 💚❤💛. Its name – Dri – embodies the metaphor of the young brazilian woman and a state of mind. Their cheese bread reinvented with chorizo is a must-order 👍. Their brazilian black been stew is also a winner on the menu. It’s perfect for a dinner before a night out 🕺💃.
Open until: 4:00AM from Tuesday to Sunday – closed on Monday
Location: Close to the nightlife places in Cais do Sodré
#5. Trópico do Cais
The best of it: This is the perfect place for a healthy meal before going to bed and having sweet dreams 💤 or facing the wild Lisbon nightlife 🎆🐅. It serves tatakis, ceviches, tartares, gyosas, poke bowls, salads, noodles, natural fruit juices and so on 💚. You can even eat outside – it has a couple of tables and chairs so you can feel embedded in Cais do Sodré unique vibe 👯.
Open until: 12:00AM from Tuesday to Thursday and Sunday; 2:30AM on Friday/Saturday – closed on Monday
Location: Amidst Cais do Sodré and the famous Pink Street
The best of it: This restaurant is what we call a classic 💯. It’s always packed but somehow we can guarantee you’ll find a seat. The rockstar dish is the Francesinha (Portuguese sandwich originally from Porto) made with bread, wet-cured ham, chorizo, fresh sausage, steak or roast meat and covered with melted cheese and a hot thick tomato and beer sauce served with french fries 🍟. You’ll find other fish and meat dishes as well as a very complete kids menu 👦👧 – which isn’t common in restaurants open until late.

You’ll also find an extensive wine list, including fresh green wines, which pair perfectly with their seafood delicacies 🦐🦀.
Open until: 2:00AM everyday except on Sunday (closed)
#8. Café Janis
The best of it: Up for a breakfast with scrambled eggs, grilled halloumi and a pain au chocolat in the afternoon or a french baguette with juicy meatballs covered in tomato sauce at midnight?🤩 This is it! Here at Café Janis you can order all this and much more at any time of the day (yaass! 🙌🎉). They even have some more tasty dishes such as the shredded slow-cooked pork, crispy coleslaw, pickles and homemade french fries; fried squid 🦑 with tartar sauce and fresh herbs or mac’n cheese with Parma ham.

Must order: spicy beef samosas 🤤🌶 They also have some good sweet 🍭 options like crêpes and ice creams of all types 🍨.

The best of it: There’s not much left to say about this place – it’s one of the city’s most acclaimed classics 🥇. We’ll not mess with its status as it delivers every single time like an Swiss watch. If you’re looking for flawless service from back-in-the-days without talking too much 💂: Galeto. Choose wisely as it can become pricey real quick 🤑. Their brioche bread hamburgers are deliiiicious 👌.
Open until: 3:30AM everyday

Abro muito poucas exceções aos hambúrgueres do @groundburger. Uma delas é este clássico do Galeto, sem tangas: brioche, hambúrguer, tomate, cebola frita e queijo. Um balcão e serviço que são um bom exemplo de uma Lisboa pré-globalização que cada vez mais nos deixa saudades… . . . #hamburguer #burger #beer #galeto #balcony #mylisbonhistory #lisboapontocome #zomatopt #toplisbonrestaurants #lisboa #portugal #spinthefork #lisboafood #marksapp #lisbonmarks #yosoytraveler

The best of it: It’s one the newest babies – opened this year – in Benfica neighbourhood and if you’re around, pay it a visit for a late snack before going home. This is a mix of snack bar and restaurant so you can count mainly with four things: good selection of alcohol, giant toasts, tasty burgers and sandwiches 👏. Secret tip 😜: it has a hidden patio. Go see it for yourself and tell us 😉.
