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:-

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

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.
