It is considered the new HQ of trendy Lisbon youth. With a breathtaking view over the 25 de Abril Bridge – similar looking to San Francisco's Golden Gate – and uncommon city sights, the Rio Malavilha has become an unusual stop in the Portuguese capital. Perched atop the LX Factory, a former power station, the restaurant is symbolised by a contemporary and colourful version of Rio's Christ the Redeemer, also referencing the Cristo Rei in Almada on the opposite riverbank. Inside, the industrial housing-type decoration gives out a vintage and trendy feel, with salvaged-leather sofas straight from a speakeasy. During the day, take a seat on the rooftop to enjoy one of the delicious meals on the menu. The refined Portuguese cuisine mixes South American influences in dishes like crab with cauliflower cream, or browned clams served with toast and celery mayonnaise. Remember to book a good table to really enjoy the view!
