What people say

"Located in the town of Cacilhas across the river, you can catch a ferry from Cais do Sodré (just off Praça do Comércio and across from the TimeOut Market). Cost was only 1.40€ each way for the ~ 10 minute trip across the Tagus River with nice views of the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge and the Santuário de Cristo Rei monument. Once across, turn right and follow the river along the row of abandoned warehouses adorned with graffiti. After about 20 minutes, you'll reach Restaurante Ponto Final. Tip #1: Make sure to secure a reservation for this waterfront spot: Tip #2: If you arrive early or want to do so sightseeing in the area, continue past the restaurant to nearby Jardim do Rio park. There, you can ride the free Elevador Panorâmico da Boca do Vento up to the top for a view of the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge and the Santuário de Cristo Rei monument (very windy up there). "
"Ponto Final in Lisbon is a charming waterfront restaurant located in Almada, just across the Tagus River from the city center. Known for its scenic views of Lisbon, this eatery offers a delightful dining experience with a mix of traditional Portuguese cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere on the river."
"This stunning restaurant serves fresh and local seafood, as well as authentic Portuguese dishes. Make sure to email them to book a table well in advance (I'm talking months). If you are unable to book a table, you can queue from 6pm to grab a walk-in table at opening time at 7pm!"

Mentioned in these guides

Complete guide with attractions and venues where to eat/drink, get those very special souvenirs from (bespoke & local brands and markets) and catch a beautiful sight…or just your breath after walking up and down the hills of this marvellous city. Lisbon is all about art, colors, architecture and GOOD vibes! 🇵🇹💚 💡General tip: combine Lisbon with visits/stays in Sintra and Porto. Highlights: 🚋 Trams - The Lisbon tramway network is a system of trams in operation since 1873; it presently comprises six lines and has a length of 31 km with 63 trams in operation (45 historic "Remodelados", 8 historic "Ligeiros" and 10 modern articulated trams). Tram 28 is famous because happens to go past many of the city's most significant landmarks in districts like Alfama, Baixa and Estrela. Because the route also uses some heritage-style tram carriages, it has become a popular tourist attraction in the city. 💠 Azulejos - is a form of Spanish and Portuguese painted tin-glazed ceramic tilework. Azulejos happen to be one of the most distinctive art forms in Portugal and are found on the interior and exterior of churches, palaces, ordinary houses, schools, and nowadays, restaurants, bars and even railways or subway stations. 🧼 Soaps - Oprah Winfrey said they're one of her favorite things, so the world is now also a fan of Portuguese soaps. But they're not recent products. They've been made since the 1800s and are 100% natural. They've maintained beautiful Art Deco and Art Nouveau packagings from the 1920s, and have become one of the favorite gifts to take from Portugal. 🥮 Pastel de nata - is a Portuguese egg custard tart pastry, optionally dusted with cinnamon - looks like a cross between a custard tart and a cake; created by monks in the Jerónimos Monastery, a major tourist attraction today and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 🍲You also have to try these traditional dishes: Bifana, Sardines, Caracoletas & Prego na Pao, Alheira de Mirandela, Queijadas. 🧉Ginja - also known as ginjinha. This sour cherry liqueur is a tourist favorite but has sweetened locals’ palates for a long time too. There are establishments in Lisbon entirely dedicated to selling this sweet beverage made with Morello cherries, a variety of spices, and plenty of sugar. Nowadays, ginja is also served in edible chocolate cups. While you may choose among white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate, dark chocolate does indeed pair beautifully with the super sweet, almost syrupy drink.
