Find Latin America in Lisbon

On Lisbon’s famous docks in Alcântara, staring out over Golden Bridge’s sister bridge, you can find Latin America in the city of Lisbon—Lat.A.

The Lat.A Atmosphere

Decorated colorfully throughout their outdoor and indoor spaces, you can find sombreros on the wall and red, yellow, and blue garlands around the palm trees that tower above the tables outside. (If you’re lucky, you may even be given a sombrero for the rest of your evening as well!)

This inviting and friendly space has live music every day throughout the week, from Salsa to Jazz. On Samba days greatest hits from “Girl of Ipanema” to “Fica Tudo Bem” fill the air.

The Cuisine at Lat.A

Lat.A presents a rich menu filled with South American cuisine, where Brazil, Peru, Argentina, and Mexico shone through our meal.

Start with their perfect guacamole with totopos, which you’ll surely devour in less than 5 minutes. You cannot miss their ceviche, which you can choose from three different recipes, with tuna or the classic white fish. The empanadas and chicken quesadillas have plenty of chili to spice up the beginning of your dinner.

In case you’re craving tacos, go for their shrimp and avocado, fresh and well-seasoned, as well as their famous al Pastor for that stringy spicy beef Mexico is known for.

Be sure to try Brazilian comfort food, picanha, with its iconic sides of rice and beans to go with it. Or go local and try Lat.A’s feijoada, available daily, with plenty of different meats to choose from.

Don’t forget to look through the drinks menu. Find their fruity Margaritas and Sangrias and smooth Pisco Sours. We couldn’t resist their signature desserts. The Tarte do Lata, with salted caramel and lime, and their churros, with the most delicious dolce de leche are a must-try.

Resident DJs play the night away every Friday and Saturday, turning the outdoor space into a classic South American club. Be sure to visit Lat.A, eat and dance your worries away!
