Does anyone have recommendations for places near the Alif?
Yes. The Bull Fighting building, right outside Alif, has been re-structured and now includes several restaurants of traditional portuguese cuisine on the ground floor, plus a food court on the lower level (it's right below the arena).
Other suggestions near Alif are the restaurant Chimarr�o (right across the corner next to Alif) and the Rod�zio da Adega.
Typical Portuguese lunchroom, lot of Portuguese people eat here; they serve nice omelettes and pies:
Pastelaria A Tentacao
Praca da Figueira 12
(near Metro station Rossio)
Vegetarian restaurant, excellent food (even some vegan stuff) and drinks (Mango Lassi, Chai):
Terra Restaurante Natural
Rua da Palmeira 15
( http://www.restauranteterra.pt/English/Location.html )
(near Rua Dom Pedro V and Rua Escola Politecnica)
For a large collection of nice restaurants (like Garbos Gazebo, a Swedish-Italian restaurant), when you are on a trip in the neighbourhood, also nice for children, it is sort of a resort, with a park and walking paths, and a splendid view over the ocean:
Estrada do Guincho
Casa da Guia
(along the beach east of Cascais, a city east of Lisbon, go via the A5 highway and the N247)
There are many other restaurants around.
