Atira-te ao Rio
The Atira-te ao Rio restaurant has a fantastic location on the south bank of the Tagus River and offers a superb view over Lisbon. It is located at Cais Ginjal, a spot also known for its photographic interest. If you like to take pictures take your camera and enjoy this opportunity. The Atira-te ao Rio is a cosy restaurant with a pleasant and relaxed ambience. The interior room is simply decorated, absorbing the atmosphere of the original building, probably a former fishing storehouse. Outside and in warmer days, the terrace allows you to take advantage of the sun and the views to Lisbon.
The cuisine of Atira-te ao Rio is international and includes dishes for all tastes, with the freshest ingredients. Dishes such as swordfish ceviche, grilled seafood, shrimp bobó (a brazilian stew), Burger Atira-te, seafood rissoto and cherry and apricot cake for dessert are very popular suggestions. In addition to these and all other dishes on the menu, on Saturdays you’ll have brazilian feijoada (beans stew) buffet at lunch and you can taste caipirinhas, another specialty of the place. You can reach the Atira-te ao Rio by car, but the complete adventure requires crossing the river from Lisbon by ferry boat. The trip from Cais do Sodre to Cacilhas is nice and then you’ll only need to walk about 800 meters along the river until you reach the restaurant. Closed on Mondays.
