Lisbon, Portugal’s colorful capital, is renowned for its rich history, picturesque cityscapes, and delicious cuisine. Among the city’s numerous culinary offerings, one stands out for its special location and exceptional dining experience: the Ponto Final restaurant. Tucked away at the end of a narrow cobbled street in Almada, a district across the river from Lisbon’s central area, Ponto Final is a renowned waterside eatery. The journey to the restaurant itself is part of the experience. To get there, you’ll need to take a short ferry ride from Cais do Sodré to Cacilhas. From the Cacilhas terminal, it’s a leisurely 10-minute walk along the riverbank, offering stunning views of Lisbon’s skyline and the iconic 25 de Abril Bridge.

Ponto Final’s main draw is its panoramic terrace, which provides an unobstructed view of the Tagus River and the city beyond. Dining here during sunset, with the golden light reflecting off the water and the cityscape bathed in warm hues, is a truly special Lisbon experience. It’s an ideal spot for a romantic meal or a relaxed gathering with friends or family.

The restaurant serves traditional Portuguese dishes, with an emphasis on fresh seafood. From clams Bulhão Pato style, succulent grilled fish, to the classic dessert ‘pastel de nata,’ every dish is a celebration of local flavors. Their wine selection, featuring Portuguese wines, complements the dining experience perfectly.

Ponto Final has been a staple of Lisbon’s dining scene for several decades. Established in the 1980s, it quickly gained fame for its stunning riverside location and traditional Portuguese cuisine. Over the years, Ponto Final has seen many changes, including a significant renovation in the early 2000s. Despite these changes, the restaurant has retained its original charm and continues to uphold its tradition of serving authentic Portuguese dishes.
