We went there (NIKKEI) last night for dinner and love every moment of it!!! We asked for suggestions to the waiter and she came with several dishes so we could try the menu. We highly recommend the shrimp tempura and the octopus.

Great location near the Belem Tower, right on the water. Food choices were creatively paired and delicious. The setting is elegant and the staff professional. Although the setting is posh, prices are reasonable. It is a wonderful break from the hustle and bustle of sightseeing;...More

Stopped here for a bite while walking around Belem. Average cafeteria food. Self service. Quite clean. If you are not expecting too much and just want something basic, a stop here is fine.

After going through a deep remodeling the Vela Latina continues to be a reference in Lisbon, now with a more modern look and care but maintaining the excellence of the food and service. A must for anyone visiting Lisbon.

We visited the self service cafeteria whilst touring the Belem area. There is also a more upmarket restaurant but we only wanted something light and this seemed to fit the bill. It was clean, not too crowded and had a good range of rolls, salads...More

Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries),
