Time Out Market is a concept created from scratch by the Time Out Portugal team with only the best ideas and business projects in Lisboa – according to the editorial team. If it’s good, it goes in the magazine, if it’s great, it goes into the market. 24 restaurants, 8 bars, a dozen shops, a cooking school and a high-end music venue, all with the very best in Lisbon (the best chefs, the best steak, the best hamburger, the best sushi and the best live performances, amongst others); on the other hand the market is home to some of the city’s best known (and longest-running) market vendors of meat, fish, fruit and flowers. The foodhall has 40 restaurants/shops served by more than 500 seats in covered area and 250 more outside.

Very good

Lively venue - we visited in the evening and for the following lunchtime. Covid passes and masks are mandatory and checked before entry. There are lots of choices for food. In the evening I opted for cured hams and cheese platter served with bread and a very nice red wine. Not cheap at 24 euros but plentiful and very tasty. My husband chose Asian (miso soup and pad thai). He enjoyed it although the pad thai was not authentic - reasonably priced with a beer. The food vendors use pagers to alert you when your food is ready so that you can go and find a seat and settle down with drinks. Be prepared to eat in shifts if you have ordered from different venues as we did. There are central bars too and a lot of people were just meeting up for drinks.
One word of caution...check your receipts when paying. Our lunchtime food vendor had added a dessert without asking which we would have been unaware of and not received with our main food order - presumably a system for getting an unsolicited tip. When we queried it, we were told it was part of a 'meal deal' which is clearly wasn't. We had no issues otherwise and enjoyed the place.

I love the choice, the quality and the atmosphere. 100% worth a visit. I had a lovely array of foods and port tasters. It’s class, it’s clean and I really enjoyed it. Would recommend getting there early as by 1245 people were struggling to find a seat together

The only place to go where one can experience some of the best gastronomy Portugal has to offer under the same roof. Top chefs have small stalls here and offer specially created menus at very reasonable prices. Cozina da Felicidade’s codfish with sweet potato chips and the duck croquettes were absolutely delicious and they also offer a nice selection of wines by the glass.

The Time Out Market is insanely busy! And I don’t believe there is a ‘quieter’ time to visit. We came one evening for our dinner and were really looking forward to it, especially hoping to try food from multiple vendors but it was just ridiculous.

It wasn’t necessarily the queue for food but the wait for somewhere to sit! We must have waited for at least 45 minutes before we found a place to sit. We found the trick is to hover/stand by a table and genuinely just wait until someone leaves. It’s not a very nice thing to have to do and it felt a little awkward but there was no other way to be seated. Sadly, they don’t offer outside seating which is a real shame and many of the people there stayed chatting and drinking after they had eaten so were in no hurry to leave.

The food we had was good, I went to Castro’s and had the cod fried balls with tomato rice for €9 which was excellent value! But we left pretty soon after eating because we felt guilty about hogging a table. My partner couldn’t be bothered to wait for food in the end so we went elsewhere. You also can’t take your food to go because everything is served on proper ceramic plates, I’d have happily had a takeaway bag if it was offered. You go to the individual vendors to order, they then give you a buzzer which will alert you when your food is ready.

It’s nice to have a little walk around in the day/evening and if you can get food there I would recommend it, but the wait for a table was just absolutely ridiculous and we left feeling rather frustrated at having to wait and then rush. They definitely need to address this issue as it isn’t fair for people going to eat to have to hover and wait for so long.

There are plenty of food and drink choices in this touristy site, though expect to pay touristy prices for it. I tried a few things: Baccalau, soup, a glass of Port. It was tasty, but I feel that I could have gone to a local restaurant with more atmosphere and eaten better at a more reasonable price.

This is an amazing place with incredible food options. The market is huge so the mass crowds and tight seating aren't a problem under normal circumstances. But the current year is not normal circumstances and gathering 500+ people into a hall with no face masks and poor ventilation is a terrible idea. When I visited, there was no attempt at social distancing. There are a few outdoor tables but they are reserved for a select number of restaurants. I would encourage Time Out to add outdoor seating to make this a safer place. They could also block off one side of each table to make the indoor dining more safe. When I visited Lisbon again in December 2021 while Omicron was raging, I decided to skip Time Out even though I really wanted to go. Hopefully the health crises resolves soon, but until then please make some adjustments to increase safety for everyone.

Fairly nice on the whole. Lots of choice, but expensive in general. Ate at Miguel Castro E Silva - got a (very small) prawn pesto risotto for lots of money. We did however get some lovely doughnuts which we highly recommend as they were delicious and good value for money. Try to avoid going in peak times as it was extremely busy and we found it very difficult to find somewhere to sit.

We stopped here several times as it is a great jumping off point for train to Torre de Belem, Cascais, and several "hot spots". Great food, shopping, and drink options....with a social atmosphere!

Strange experience! Sat at bar first right at entrance after struggling to find a seat to be treated absolutely terrible by a member of the bar staff, he firstly approached me to say my drink was disgusting (I had gotten it at a different promotion area serving port cocktails) he then proceeded to give everyone around the bar a shot to enjoy except me. At least 7/8 customers. He proceeded to mention I was English to other customers laughing (I’m actually Scottish). We left immediately after my husband returned from the rest room leaving the drinks behind. I have had a fantastic experience in Lisbon but really struggling to shake this experience off.

I have trouble walking very far so we decided to do our own "food & booze sampling tour" at the Time Out Market! it worked out perfectly. We were able to enjoy Vinho Verde, a port wine flight, a Super Bock, a great red wine and even received excellent recommendations from a store owner for the best wine & port to take home with us. We enjoyed Portugese cheese and meat, Cod Croquettes, mixed seafood platters that included octopus, sardines.and several other seafoods. The pasteis de nata we took back to the hotel with us for breakfast were superb! The highly recommended eclairs lived up to their recommendation!

This entire evening cost less that 50euros for the 2 of us excluding the 50euros we paid for the wines and port that we took home with us and then learned that they would have cost almost 3 times that much at home!

Yes. we missed the commentary that would have been provided by a tour guide but we received much local knowledge from many of the individual stall providers and locals seated near us. The Tine Out Market has what I would call "community seating" and if you just let it be known that you are interested in "Local food customs" you will receive plenty of "input"

A Total Success!
