I love sushi and lucky for me and many of you sushi lovers out there, Lisbon is the perfect place to find this delicious cuisine. Find out the brand new sushi restaurants in Lisbon.
Fresh, delicious sushi in this new cosy restaurant. Can’t think of a better place for a more intimate dinner. The sushi men, Aron Vargas, came from Brazil 16 years ago and immediately started working with one of the most renowned sushi chef’s in Portugal, Takashi Yoshitake. Today he has two sushi restaurants, this new one is right above a fishmonger so you can rest assured, the sushi will be very fresh. There are 9 lunch menus, sushi and sashimi combos (€35 for 30 pieces or €18 for 15 pieces) and you can also try the a la carte menu with names like o-toro, chutoro and akami.

I’m always suspicious when the sushi price is low but in this case, the low sushi prices are inversely proportional to the fish quality. It’s fresh and it’s delicious. At this new restaurant, you can take a seat at the counter or you sit in one of the tables. 8 pieces of tempura go for €9,90, a meal for two can go up to €30 if you’re very hungry.

The Chiyome Sushi is located in Belém, more specifically, inside the Associação Naval de Lisboa and has the best view of the Tagus river, as you can sit in the margins of the river while enjoying your dish. Prices for a sushi combo start at €17 for a plate with 15 pieces and go up to €57 for the chefs special with 50 different pieces. Every day there are different specials.

Crunchy cones stuffed with marinated tuna and Port infused caramelised onion, covered in sesame seeds and wasabi peas are one of the client’s favourites, but there’s more. Prawn tempura with tartare mayo, white fish ceviche with tigers milk, chips and sweet potato pure… Should I say some more?

5. Miss Jappa
It’s right in the centre of Lisbon, in Bairro Alto more precisely. At the helm of the restaurant is the only Portuguese certified by the All Japan Sushi chef Anna Lins. At this restaurant, you can try a mix of the old and new sushi cuisine. The chirashi at the moment is highly recommended.
Average dinner price for two: €40
