“Eating inside the river”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Been there for the first time and loved it. Booked in advance for the table on the end, So we ate really inside the river.

The food was really good, and the view is something you can't get in many places.

If you don't like cats you may not sit outside, as there are plenty of them. All very friendly!

“Get of Your lazy backs”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Been there several times, and sent numerous friends. It is a great way of combining simple food, great setting, and a (nearly) free boat ride with a vieuw of the city.
If You do not want to spend 10€ on a great bottle of chilled wine, don't go.
If You hate getting out of Your hotel, don't go.
If You are lazy, don't consider goïng.
So just go!

“A unique dining experience”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

I had read about Ponto Final during my research for our trip and decided this would be an ideal spot for lunch during our day trip to Lisbon. We took the 15 minute ferry ride from Cais do Sodre station to Cacilhas. The restaurant is located at the end of a pier which you arrive at having walked 15 minutes along the waterfront past abandoned warehouses. The restaurant, at the base of the Elevador de Cacilhas, affords fabulous views of Lisbon, the harbour and the April 25th bridge.

We sat at the edge of the pier, basking in the sunshine and enjoyed an amazing lunch. Along with a bottle of Portuguese rose, we had the delicious monkfish and tomato rice stew that arrived bubbling hot in a clay pot. The stew is only available for 2 persons to share. There was not a drop of sauce left as it was mopped up with the great bread which had been served earlier with the best garlicky olives.

Ponto Final has been open for 30 years and its customers are a mix of locals and tourists. Our very pleasant waitress told us we must come back for dinner as the view at night is magical. Ponto Final is closed Tuesdays.

The restaurant has a few friendly cats that make the rounds for scraps. Not bothersome.

Ponto Final is truly a unique spot. Definitely worth the effort.

“The vue is amizing”
Reviewed July 8, 2012 via mobile

if you have time to spend you should go to this restaurant, not because of the food, but for the vue and the crossing of the river.
