The Docas - Lisbon

Dinner tonight was at the Docas (docks) - an upscale collection of 20+ restaurants and clubs along the Tagus River and almost directly underneath the Ponte 25 Abril bridge - a replica of the Golden Gate bridge.

The restaurants featured two levels of seating indoors as well as riverside seating under umbrellas. We enjoyed the outdoor dining atmosphere gazing at the hundreds of boats in the marina as well as schools of large fish that occasionally received a morsel tossed from above.

An Irish pub was packed with the TV turned to a live World Cup rugby contest. Other restaurants were Italian, Spanish and Portuguese among others.
