Having read fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor and hearing great recommendations from our hotel about the quality and authenticity of 'Botequim da Mouraria' we were a bit on the excited side. Armed with the knowledge there were only 9 bar seats in the restaurant we waited at 6.30pm for the doors to open at 7pm - we didn't want to... More

The owner serves you at a bar and makes your meals to order in a small nearby kitchen thst yiu can see into. The steak ed the softest I have every had. My partners lamb chops were plentiful and...

The food and the service were outstanding. Come for the opening as in our experience only one sitting a night is on hand.

Wow. No idea how they make simple dishes so amazing! Best veal I have ever had. Loved the mushrooms and the ham (he shaved it off the bone leg right in front of us). Wine was perfect. The owner is the nicest man....must have said "obrigado" (thanks) 30 times! Best meal and coolest local vibe!

Small place that seats about 10 people, but....... the quality of food and service is out of this world. For this place there should be a 6 star rating available.

Amazing what culinary treats come out of this tiny kitchen manned only by the owner at first and later with help from his wife. We had an appetizer for 2 of grilled mushrooms and a local white wine, and both chose the Lombinhos de Porco Preto (Black Pork Tenderloin), which we'd been told about and lived up to it's reputation....

One should definetely go to Botequim da Mouraria. I was lucky enough to be the last one to arrive there twice already. There are only 9 seats in a balcon (no tables), so you have to arrive early. As far as I know they open at 7:30 p.m, so I suggest you arrive between 7 and 7:15 p.m. The owner... More

What a unique dining experience. This fine place only has bar type seating, making for interesting ambiance & conversation with other diners. The owner waits on you personally from behind the bar. The selection of good is simple, but don't let that fool you. It's absolutely wonderfully prepared with care & attention. Once it's full he doesn't accept additional diners,... More
