A group of six called in for a drink. Like other reviewers we were given what we thought were complimentary snacks - when the bill came we were horrified. The most expensive drinks we had all holiday. Stay away!

It leaves a lot to be desired. We'd ordered before we Googled or we would have taken advice. We'd already asked them to take away the bits of cheese. We ordered a half bottle of Lello Branco from the wine list. We had grilled squid and some chips to share. It was ok and filled a gap. We braced ourselves... More

My experience does not match recent reviews, so I think that it is only fair to comment. We stopped at Sol Nascen after a morning's sightseeing. We were not expecting great cuisine and we were aware that its position meant that it was a tourist trap. We were aware of the charges for olives etc and accepted only the bread,... More

This place is a tourist trap. It has a great location, but that's pretty much all it has. Servers ignore you, then offer bread and cheese that looks free, but the tiny cheese and stale bread end up costing an extra 13 Euro. Not cool.

After enjoying one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Lisbon (Alfama), we stopped at "Sol Nascente" Restaurant; what could possible go wrong? everything, just everything. The server was rude and unwilling to answer any questions, they immediately presented you with cheese and bread; which I knew it wasn't free, so when I told him to take it away he mumbled... More

As soon as you get in they bring some bread with butter, and it looks like complimentary as lot of places do, but later on you find in your bill that you was charged for those 2 pieces of bread with butter 20 euros. Soup we ordered was terrible. Probably soup you make from concentrates will be much better than... More

Very tempting to have a drink after visiting the castle and waiting for the tourist bus or tram but DON'T GO TO THIS PLACE. 20 cents change from a 10 euro note for two beers ! Needless to say there was no tip for the rude waiter.

Absolute rip-off. Our bill ended up being over 100 euros after we were charged for many items we did not order (bread, cheese, horrible pastries, three additional salads). The food we did order was poor sloppy stuff, and very expensive. We felt taken advantage of because we could not speak Portuguese, and did not understand local norms. AVOID THIS PLACE.

Please NEVER go to this "Restaurant"! We ate lunch and were surprised at how high the bill. The cheese and the bread we had to pay(13€), the waiter was annoyed and stress. Two drinks, two salads and the bread with the cheese cost € 39! the salad tasted like fish! thank you for this!
