Recommandation on arrival day in Lisbon

I will be in Lisbon in the next 2 week and I have done my research on previous posting from experts such as “vinhotinto75” and “monchique”. I need restaurant recommendation on my arrival day which I would like to have a light meal preferably bouillabaisse or some kind of seafood stew/soup. The restaurant should be close to the Four Season Ritz Lisbon (Baixa?) where I will be staying.

Thanks in advance for the help.

    The area in which you are staying is not far at all from the Blue Line (Pombal Stop) so you could take the metro or a taxi to any place in the city.

    If you wanted to walk 10-15 minutes, the Cervejaria Real Fábrica in the Largo do Rato is quite simple and has a varied selection of fish and seafood stews.

    A short metro or cab ride away there are options such as Kaetano's (Avenida Stop) or Esquina da Fé. They both serve risotto (arroz de.....) seafood stews as well as other fish and non-fish options too. Likewise, you could take a longer cab ride to Graça and go to Pitéu or Churrasco da Graça as both serve hearty portions of fish and other dishes.

    If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
