Pateo 13 in Alfama was our second favorite dinner destination while in Lisbon. Also in Alfama, it is an outdoor venue tucked within the inner part of Alfama and specializes in fresh fish all cooked in the grill. Expect to wait the later the night goes, but well worth it. It almost seems "touristy" with the crowds, but Pateo 13... More

We waited for a table for 20 mins despite there being 2 empty tables which were not cleared. This is how long it finally took one of the staff to remove the dirty plates and set the table for us. Waiting another 15mins for menus. Food also took a while to arrive. Every step of the "process" was just tedious.... More

The good reviews seem to be outdated, our experience was not good. We started with a medium hot fish soup without fish and a lot of macaroni (pasta). Then we had steak with salad, fries and vegetables, where the steak was over cooked, fries where cold and the vegetables where diced carrots. The bottle of water we ordered was not... More

We saw a lot of very positive reviews for this restaurant but found the food to be average. My husband's swordfish was deliciously grilled and seasoned (although pretty tiny), but I found my cod fish to be someone undercooked and barely seasoned. So all together I considered the food okay. Also, make sure that you don't eat the bread, butter... More

My wife and I had a very good lunch here on a hot summer day. The grilled fish, salad and wine was ideal for a light lunch. This does not aim to be fine dining, but is good value, simple and delicious.

Pateo 13 is really a hidden gem in Alfama. You can choose between many typical Portuguese charcoal grilled fishes, fantastic wines and deserts. All was really fresh. The best is that even the service is really nice and authentic and it's full every day which is a good sign. Great variety of fresh fish and portuguese wines. All together it... More

This place might be hard to find but definitely worth the search! The menu is very simple. Just pick whether you want meat or fish and they will grill it for you. We picked 4 different fishes and they all were delicious. My recommendation - sardines and white sangria to drink. I tried sangria in few different places in Lisbon,... More

Very cute and nice restaurant hidden within the Alfama District. First of all, don't expect a 5* fancy restaurant : the Pateo 13 is a small cosy and warm hearted restaurant known by many locals looking to have a nice meal in a friends and family atmosphere. Recommended by the Guide Vert Michelin, we were not at all disappointed. Perfect... More

I had lunch, all the food was fresh and they prepared a lot of the food outside. Many of the staff were singing traditional Portugese songs, which added to the atmosphere. Fairly priced too, no complaints.
