Once again this year, many of our clients have asked us what their options are for dining out in Lisbon on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve 2010-2011.

Last year, we were able to compile quite a comprehensive list of restaurants open at Christmas & New Year, but this year we’ve concentrated on the more popular New Year period, although some of the restaurants below are also open for the traditional Portuguese Christmas meal, which is dinner on 24th December, Christmas Eve.

Once again, if you know if any other Lisbon restaurants open on 31st December 2010, please let us know below in the comments, and we will update this post. Likewise we’d love to know if there are any errors here.

And so, in no particular order, here we have several Lisbon restaurants open for Christmas & New Year 2010/2011:-

Sofisticated and intimist atmosphere with excellent service, the restaurant AdLib offers a mix of French gastronomy and Portuguese flavours.

Amazonia Lisboa Hotel

An elegant, cosmopolitan and cosy restaurant, where the meals are served with style and dedication.

La Brasserie de L’Entrecote
La Brasserie de L’Entrecote is one of a kind in Portugal, a concept brought to Portugal from Switzerland and given an extra twist with a Paris touch.

Casa da Comida
Situated next to the “Jardim das Amoreiras” gardens, this is a classic restaurant, with its period decor and antique furniture.

Cervejaria Trindade
19th century beer house-restaurant, renowned as much for its traditional Portuguese cuisine as for its lovely tile panels depicting the seasons and the elements

Clara Chiado
A sophisticated and formal restaurant with modern decor, although using a classic style. Fine Portuguese cuisine.

Although it has just recently lost its coveted Michelin star for the 2011 season, it is still one of the best Lisbon restaurants.
