My mother’s daughter

Located at Largo de São Sebastião da Pedreira 49, this restaurant is owned by a mother and her 3 daughters. Isn’t it lovely?. It serves healthy meals and drinks using wholefood ingredients. Apart from this, they have a nice menu starting with their wellness latte and finishing with raw tart.Additionally, for those who are in a rush, they have the business-lunch menu’s everyday.

An interesting aspect is that they are very careful with food disposal. Every single ingredient that was not used today will not go to waste. Even so, there is an aspect, a not so shiny one about this place. Their food is quite expensive for their size.The food quantities are not large enough for their price and it can be a little disappointing for some customers. Despite of it, it’s a nice place where you can enjoy vegan food. Once arrived at Lisbon Airport, catch the only Metro line (Red), and exit at the final station São Sebastião. There, you need to walk 150 meters up-street and you’ll arrive at this restaurant.

Wok to Walk

Located at Avenida Dom Joao II, 40, this chain of restaurants is close enough to Lisbon’s airport. They are not vegan, even so they provide a wide spectrum of vegan food and products. They mix many veggie ingredients such as mushrooms, pasta, vegetables, tofu, seitan etc. This chain of fast vegan food follows the front-eyes cooking for their success. A practical example is when the chef cooks and creates a sort of magic in front of the client’s eyes.We find it very cool! It’s a good place if you’re on a budget or for a quick lunch but it can’t provide a totally healthy vegan meal. It’s easy to get there, just by Metro from Airport and stop at the 3rd station-Oriente. This restaurant is located at top floor at Vasco da Gama Shopping Mall, which is right at the subway exit.

Las Vegan

Located at Rua Cavaleiro de Oliveira 53B, this restaurant is a famous one among the vegan lovers in Lisbon. They provide good service and there is a feeling like you are in a true vintage American dinner. It’s not too close to the airport but, we recommended them to all passengers who are not in a hurry. Their food is fine based on the customer’s reviews, and the restaurant ambience will make your experience at least worthy of giving them a chance. Check them out on Facebook! Now it’s not difficult to get here. Simply go to Metro from Lisbon’s Airport until station Alameda, then change to green line and exit at the Arroios Station. Once you arrived at Arroios, just walk 100 meters and you will surely get to their location.
