Our meat dishes were cooked to perfection and just the right spices. I had the cod. The restaurant had a very friendly atmosphere and since we ate early when there were no other customers, we got to eat with the cooks and some of the family who own the restaurant and that was really great. All of the food we... More

Difficult location, Food without flavor and very expensive. The worse thing is the unfair practice in this restaurant to charge the olive oil. Unbelievable and unacceptable.

Very tasty food, Pork roast, lamb stew, cumin flavored rice and açorda with spinach. Figs in wine and vanilla ice cream for desert. Good bottle of Alenteju. Good service and well worth it. For lunch we could have... More

Descobre, is a nice restaurant, that you enter through a small shop, full of fine portuguese wines, olive oil, sweets and cheese. The food is quite good and the service efficient and nice. The location, near Jerónimos, CCB and the Belém area is also quite good. Recommended.

While visiting Belem we had lunch at Descobre, a very fresh and modern restaurant with a nice traditional Portuguese menu. The food was very nicely done and served quickly and nicely.

Nice place to eat. Calm and good service. The average price, per person, with starters and bootle of wine is €30,00. In this restaurant the side dishes are not included, which is not normal for a Portuguese restaurant. Anyway it is a really nice restaurant to go and experience it. In this place I taste the best octopus I ever... More

This is stylish yet cosy restaurant, which looks recently renovated - has the feel of a lovely stone vault, with golden stone, beautifully lit. The menu is extensive and we opted for a collection of the generously portioned starters, all of which were very fine indeed. Very fine clams in parsley and garlic, chicken in Perreira sauce, fantastic prawns 'Descobre'... More

Staying in Belem

Neighbourhood Profile
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
