We arrived just in time and got a table within a few minutes. This place quickly filled up, mainly with locals. Great atmosphere and ok service (they were very busy, so no problem, not expecting any pretentious airs and graces here, or anywhere for that matter). The food was delicious, we had sea bass, squid and cuttlefish, all with lots... More

The place is great, with a very nice outdoor seating area hidden among the houses of one of the most characteristic neighbourhoods of Lisbon. The atmosphere is down-to-earth and super friendly, the waiters were all in a good mood and joking with customers. The seafood was really great: if you want to get the true portugues sardines-experience, go there!! We... More

Lisbonne is a city with an amazing soul and nothing beats walking the Alfama district in the evening to find a place to eat. Narrow passageways, staircases up and down, it feels like you are in some sort of a maze and then suddenly a wider space opens up, a large mature tree stands in the middle of it and... More

Good food, freshly grilled. Nice terrace, good and friendly service. A nice spot to sit under the trees and enjoy the real life in a busy town!

My boyfriend and I had been walking around the neighbourhood looking for a spot to eat. We stumbled across this restaurant and it had everything we were looking for; atmosphere was electric, it smelt delicious, and cheap! I recommend this place 100% staff were brilliant, food was exceptional and we had a great time. Order sangria you won't be disappointed!

Very typical Alfama. Good ambiance and good food. You wouldn't think this spot (the terrace) would change in a restaurant at night, which makes it very grass root and special. I ate the famous Sardinhas and it was delicious.

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The good reviews seem to be outdated, our experience was not good.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
