It's the most recent guidebook available for the city and is jam-packed with ideas for eating, shopping and sightseeing with top-notch photographs throughout.

There is plenty of historical context and interesting trivia too, without being too dry and overly academic (Secret Lisbon, anyone? Anyone??).

I do wish Time Out would be a bit more opinionated, like the Cadogan guides, sometimes the descriptions do oversell a couple of places (the Se and Castelo were particularly disappointing - and extremely overpriced, in the case of the castle).

The couple of errors mentioned in another review are extremely minor and the gripe about opening hours can be said about EVERY guidebook: circumstances change, places shut or move, it's something all travellers have to deal with. For instance, you can add a couple of euros to all the admission prices quoted!

BEST OF LISBON
Sunset from Esplanada de Igreja da Graca
Riding the old trams and funiculars at night, when they are lit up inside and less crowded
Gulbenkian Museum and surrounding gardens
A day out to Sintra
Oceanario Aquarium - expensive but well worth it

SURPRISINGLY INTERESTING
National Pantheon - lovely buildng, great rooftop views, interesting insight into Portugal's heroes too
Centro Cultural de Belem - free modern art collection, fascinating temporary exhibition on at the time
The whole Park of Nations development - shame Belem isn't as nice

The Time Out Guide contains more information than any other competitor in a handy, pocket-accommodating size and I would recommend it in the absence of anything better.

The format, level of detail, history are all good but I thought I would highlight three of the main faults.

MAPS
Other books (the AA Citypack and DK Top Ten provide pull out maps
The error on p246 referred to in a previous review is not a problem as the area in question is the subject of a larger scale map at pp250-251 with accurate information. I do agree with the other reviewer that the various pages do not connect or interlink as well they might

BELEM
This harbour area is a must see but barely merits a mention. On this the AA Citypack was preferable.

RESTAURANTS
No general guide is going to be able to cover restaurants and cafes in sufficient detail but Lisbon is not Italy and, if you are vegetarian, you need every assistance going. The dedicated vegetarian section is helpful but does not provide the practicalities set out in the case of other establishments

In summary, while there is much room for improvement, think very carefully in not investing in the TimeOut Guide before your visit to Lisbon

Just got back from Lisbon. Very Handy book. My only critisism, the maps don't tie up neatly from page to page, other than that a helpful pocket guide.

Even though this Time Out guide was published over 2 years ago, I found that when I went to Lisbon last week, all the restaurants and attractions recommended in the book were still there and still excellent.

Although this Time Out guide to Lisbon was supposed to have been updated and revised in September 2010, this book is full of inaccuracies. Let's start with the glaringly obvious - the map of central Lisbon on page 246 has two Rua do Alecrim's shown in different streets next to each other, and Rua das Flores is also in the completely wrong place. Additionally, this book tells you there are 3 funiculars and suggests you should take the Lavra funicular. Please note, the Lavra funicular is now a national monument and has been closed for some considerable time. Even if you walk up the Calcada do Lavra, you will be unable to exit at the top of the hill as the gates are firmly locked. Add to this inaccurate opening days and times for restaurants, cafes, etc and this book will waste a vast amount of your time. I will not be buying another Time Out guide for any future trips and I would recommend avoiding this guide. Time Out say their guides are written by local experts, but it would seem the locals don't get out much.
