By the river, in the Cais do Sodré area, The Green Room is more than just another Lisbon or Portuguese restaurant. It’s a world restaurant. The name already gives a hint.
It often fills up with locals and foreigners any time of the day who are looking for comfort in a relaxed atmosphere.
Here, everything comes from fair commerce or local farmers: with the Ribeira Market almost next door, you wouldn’t expect anything else. There are salads, sandwiches, vitamin-filled juices, hot soups and many vegetarian and vegan dishes, and most of it is 100% organic.
The menu is written with white chalk, and explains how to get the various options. If you feel like having a burger, veggie or not, then it’s even easier; first you pick the bread, then the burger, followed by the topping that takes you on a ride through the delicacies and flavors of different parts of the globe. And, finally, there is the garnish of delicious couscous and bean salad. The cherry on top of the cake is the dessert: fresh pastry that leaves anyone eager for more.
Any confusing decisions to make comes with support from the employees who are always ready to clarify any questions.
All are welcomed as a family style restaurant. Students, fun-guaranteed birthday parties, informal business meetings and, you might like this, surprise day for moms. Yes, on Mondays, mothers do not pay to eat at the Green Room.
The Restaurant is open all day, so it’s an option for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner. You can also hear a soundtrack from a local band playing.
One thing is guaranteed, no matter what meal you choose, the food and the ambiance of The Green Room makes everyone feel like they want to come back!
