Mercado da Ribeira is genius, an old market place renovated by Time out magazine having some 35 stalls selling food and wine of excellent quality and presentation. You sit in the middle where tables, glasses and plates are shared between all the stalls. Competition, ambiance and freedom of choice makes this a fantastic food venue – something I would love to see more places and especially in Luxembourg. Well done Time out and good luck on this!
