The Food Temple opened 9 years ago as a pioneer of vegan cuisine in Lisbon, and never left the heart of Mouraria. Waiters, chefs, friends, customers and neighbours went back and forth all those years and contributed to creating the unique identity of this place.

As the restaurant has had several lives already, some of you have been supporting us for a very long time while others have just discovered us. But to all of you, we want to share our excitement as we write a new chapter of The Food Temple’s story with you.

Let’s continue our journey together – visit us soon !

Your devoted team.

Our food

The Food Temple is a vegan restaurant. We love to create plant-based dishes that reflects the seasons and our inspirations. We also love how food so naturally brings people together, and so we have designed our menu to be one that is easily shared with good company.

Our drinks

Over the years, many local producers have popped up in Lisbon with inspiring creations. We have picked some of our favourites to have in-house for you! Craft sodas, artesanal beer and local natural wines - our selection is changing from time to time according to the seasons and to our discoveries. Indulge yourself!

Our team


Certainly the mascot of The Food Temple and its kindest team member. Always at your service, Diogo will make sure that you are having an amazing time. Don’t forget to follow his recommendations, but be aware that the tipsier you get, the happier he will be.


Passionate about nature and animation, Davide is our own personal cartoon. You can talk with him about your favourite Disney movie or simply appreciate his delightful sense of humour while he waits your table.


Phillipe, our chef, plays magical handpan drums as well as he writes poetry, and he carried his smile and his kitchen knowledge directly from Bahia, where he is from. A “bon vivant” in the truest sense of the word.


When he is not busy drawing, Pedro is the right-hand-man of Alec. Good music lover, he is a drummer and a dreamer in his spare time. For the record, he really likes zebras and giraffes – in fact everything with patterns that can be silkscreened.


As the « french touch » of the team, Lucie will attend your table with a lot of care and a funny accent. When she is not at the Food Temple, she is traveling, wiriting or photographing what gets in her way.

How to find us?

As all good things, we are not always easy to find! Google Maps often looses its way in the beautiful labyrinth of Mouraria. Therefore, we suggest you have a look at our map. We are 5 minutes away from the main square Martim Moniz. If you feel lost, you can always give us a call or ask the neighbours around, they will guide you! Please note you cannot enter the neighbourhood by car, so enjoy a stroll on foot to us instead!
