After running the gauntlet of a dozen or so greeters to entice you into their restaurants, we settled on Destino as their greeter wasn't too pushy. Waiter service was friendly and in reasonable time considering they were busy and we weren't in a hurry. Main courses were delicious, large portions, fresh fish and tender meat, desserts huge and very tasty!... More

Enticed in to eat here rather than any of the others in the same square, all very much if a muchness and always going to be hit or miss. Took age's to order, drinks took 10 mins to arrive, olives were forgotten. Other tables seemed to be treated very differently and with more speed. Husband's fish was chewy overcooked with... More

The Destino Restaurante on a pedestrian street near Restauradores is one of our favorites. Ruggiero welcomes you from the street - what a great personality! The menu is varied and the food is very good!

We really enjoyed our dinner here...excellent location, good food even considering its in a very touristy area. Cisco the greeter was what brought us in here. He's a very personable individual with a great attitude. We walked by him a few days in a row & we could tell he really enjoys his job. The food was excellent & service... More

You must try the garlic prawns....the very best and the cataplana is really for 4 and wonderful. We almost didn't stay the first time because of the construction. Our perseverance was rewarded. Went for a late lunch next time. Not as crowded and more relaxing. Just as delicious.

This is a very good restaurant well worth the climbing up the hills ;) Staff was very nice and knowing what to recommend. The food was fantastic and very nice served on the plates. Wine was nice and the cocktails as well. It's a cosy restaurant that you have to visit if you are in Lissabon!

Good food and really great service. I asked for the rabbit but was told in a friendly way by the waiter that I should reconsider - this at first worried me but when my second choice of lamb chops arrived any fears disappeared. My partner ordered squid and watched it fished out of a tank to be cooked fresh. The... More

All the restauranteurs in Portas de Santo Antao stand outside their establishments trying to persuade you to enter. Not in an annoying way as they don't persist when you decline their invitation. Destino had a particularly jolly and charming patron so we took a chance and were so glad we did. The food was delicious and extremely reasonably priced. €60... More
