Spain/Portugal

My family and I will be in Spain and Portugal for a little over a week in early April. My kids are both over 21 and adventurous eaters. We will be in Madrid for 3 days, Porto for 2 days, Obidos for 2 days and Lisbon for only one night. The only plans I currently have are dinner at Casa Lucio in Madrid and dinner at Cervejaria Ramiro in Lisbon. Please make suggestions as to restaurants that I shouldn't miss. Although I would love to hit some 3 star joints, this is not an expense account trip and I would prefer solid moderately priced places. Thanking you in advance, Tom.

          It's a good restaurant but I like better something "with more personality".
