No visit to Lisbon's Mosteiro dos Jerónimos or the Torre de Belém is complete without a stop at this bakery-café next to the monastery, which has been serving delectable custard tarts since 1837.

GoLisbon: Restaurants
This page has some useful tips, such as "Don't assume that the starters of cheese, spreads, olives, and bread that you are presented with when you sit down are free."

Personal plugs

Here are several personal recommendations (in the higher-priced restaurant categories) from a recent trip:

Olivia Avenida Restaurant
The Tivoli Jardim Hotel's contemporary restaurant turns Mediterranean ingredients into international dishes.

Terreiro do Paço
Book a table in the vaulted, two-story interior or under the arches facing the Praça do Comercio. At lunch, this top-drawer Portuguese restaurant is popular with well-dressed members of the city's political and business elite. (I saw the former president of Portugal during my visit.)
