On Day 25 of our Round The World Trip with Star Alliance we were in Lisbon, Portugal. Along with visiting some famous attractions in Lisbon, nothing compared to having one of the best seafood meals of my life at the legendary Cervejaria Ramiro.

1:48 Elevador de Santa Justa – Located just a short walk from Praça de D. Pedro IV (Rossio Square), the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Santa Justa lift is a historical elevator that you can ride to the top for a great view of Lisbon. Since I was in the area and it wasn’t busy I decided to go for it. Price – 5 EUR

4:31 Castelo de São Jorge – From Praça da Figueira we took the bus up the hill to Castelo de São Jorge, which is one of the top things to do in Lisbon. After paying the entrance fee, we walked around the castle, which is situated on the top of one of Lisbon’s hills as a citadel. The views of the surrounding area and the castle itself were spectacular. This is a must visit attraction in Lisbon. Price – 8.50 EUR per person

8:01 Epic seafood at Cervejaria Ramiro – If you ask anyone where to eat the best Portuguese seafood meal in Lisbon, undoubtedly the number one response you’ll hear is Cervejaria Ramiro. It’s a seafood palace of a restaurant that’s popular with both locals and tourists alike, everyone comes for the abundance of incredibly fresh seafood. It actually almost feels like a Chinese restaurant when you’re eating at Cervejaria Ramiro from the liveliness and the fresh seafood tanks. We started off with some prawns in garlic sauce and then ate clams in garlic and then had crab. The crab roe was intensely amazing, and I’ve never seen a crab with so much roe in my life. Next we had some of the greatest shrimp / prawns I’ve ever seen. I ordered 2 tiger prawns which were the size of lobsters, and then 2 scarlet prawns, a type I had never eaten before. Both were incredibly delicious, some of the best prawns and seafood I’ve ever tried. Finally, my last seafood dish at Cervejaria Ramiro was a plate of goose barnacles and some oysters. For steak at Cervejaria Ramiro one of the popular things you have to eat is called a prego, which is steak sandwich. After eating all that seafood, somehow the steak sandwich hits the spot. Our total price – 108 EUR for everything we ate and ordered.

26:23 Lisbon Cathedral – The Lisbon Cathedral is one of the first cathedrals and earliest buildings in Lisbon, and it’s a fantastic sight to see.

27:31 Rua Augusta Arch – After walking around the Lisbon Cathedral we then headed to the main plaza of Lisbon and walked around the Rua Augusta Arch and got a nice view of the Tagus river.

29:10 Piri piri chicken at Frangasqueira Nacional – Finally to end this amazing day of Portuguese food and attractions in Lisbon, we headed to Frangasqueira Nacional to try their piri piri chicken. It’s just a small takeaway restaurant, but the passion of the owners is evident. The piri piri chicken was awesome. Total price – 14 EUR

This was probably my favorite day of our trip to Lisbon, with a perfect mix of incredible Portuguese food, especially seafood at Cervejaria Ramiro and visiting attractions in Lisbon.

  1. @t here they'll tell u where to taste the wonderful Portuguese food at half of price that you’ll get in city center. Just in middle of Lisbon Cascais and Sintra with Familiar rooms (private bath) a nice swimming pool and free private parking. Enjoy Lisbon with your family!

  2. Hey, Mark, I'm so Jelly right now I love seafood and OMG. that looks so good my mouth is still watering when you ate them prawns. i just live to the south of your dad here in Oklahoma and wished I could just be able to taste that Prawn! keep our mouths watering and everyone wanting to try different foods kool show!

  3. It's really not a surprise that you would love Portugal Mark, But there is still more to explore than just in Lisbon 😉 Regarding Bacalhau, we have loads of different recipes and ways of presenting the fish, there are also more traditional foods that are simply delicious, some of them can be found in the North and Inner part of the country. A journey for another day, to O'Porto, Braga, Guimarães, Viana do Castelo, Mirandela and the Régua region.
    You need to try our traditional meat dishes… The different types, the different chouriços (sausages), cheeses, wines and of course, the sweets. There is almost a different traditional sweet in every city that is followed by some history about it.
    But Portugal is a country of really good little things as you experienced, just like the Bacalhau Pastel, and our Coffe. Eventually, there are gonna be some places where the coffee isn't that good, but the majority of the places, from the tiny cafe to the biggest commercial surface, will have an amazing coffee. Café is a must in almost every Portuguese life 🙂

  4. Mark, its a joy to watch you tasting all that stuff haha! The next time you go to Portugal you should definetly try FRANCESINHA!!<3

  5. 12:10 thats not the way to eat sapateira(cold crab) they must surely have provided you with an wooden hammer and or weird looking set of pliers to crack open the shell so it makes a whole lot easier to reach those yammy pieces inside… still nice vid bud !!!

  6. 108 Euros for that meal the average salary is about 900 a month in Lisbon so not many locals are eating there I'm sure it was great but that means there is a dive somewhere doing it better and cheaper
