Event Space
“The world’s first food and cultural market, and the first market experience rooted wholly in editorial curation. A place that previously housed the city’s top vendors now brings together the best of the city under one roof: its best restaurants, bars and cultural experiences. An emblematic space of Lisbon renewed by TIME OUT magazine, offering food and traditional local products and the foods range from seafood to steak sandwiches, hamburgers, sushi and ice cream… with canteen-style communal tables. If on the ground floor it is too crowded, try the upper floor famous restaurant Pap'Açorda (with a lunch menu more affordable) . ”

“The Santa Justa Lift, also called Carmo Lift, is an elevator, or lift, in the civil parish of Santa Justa, in the historical city of Lisbon, Portugal. Situated at the end of Rua de Santa Justa, it connects the lower streets of the Baixa with the higher Largo do Carmo. the access to this location via Rua do Ouro requires you to take the lift, which often is overcrowded. An easy choice would be to access directly the top side via Largo Do Carmo, right next to Carmo Convent.”

Seafood Restaurant
“It is fishmonger, seafood restaurant, bar and seafood, or rather a "modern fishmonger". It is a contemporary space where you can buy fish to cook at home or stay for a meal ranging from sushi to traditional seafood. The fish is therefore always fresh, and can also be served in the bar area, accompanied by wine by the glass. On Friday and Saturday nights the doors are open later, and DJs are often present.”

Portuguese Restaurant
“You must try octopus fillets with açorda! Very nice tuna steak à Algarvia (south typical flavours with a lot of coriander and garlic). Also great meat, steaks... Ask if they have "cadelinhas" special little shells! ”

Bar
“The view is from Lisbon, the decor is inspired by India, but the atmosphere (and the menu) is cosmopolitan. This large café-terrace restaurant on a large city-facing terrace serves light meals throughout the day but also serves as a bar. While everyone naturally chooses to stay on the terrace, on rainy days there is a shelter in the interior rooms, which are equally pleasant.”
