For us, we were hungry and noticed that the trolly from the castle were very crowded so we decided to just sit and eat somewhere. This place was nicely situated to see the trolly line so we sat down. Like other reviewers have noted, they immediately brought bread and butter. Bread was soft, unlike almost every other restaurant in Europe.... More

After walking and visiting places around the beautiful Alfama, my boyfriend and I we were looking for a place to have lunch, we saw this well located place with a good terrace and decided to have the lunch there. As many of people in the review, they brought us cheese and bread that we thought it was free but in... More

Most places were already closed as we got lost in Alfama then we decided to eat there...we ordered the easiest menu ever: an omelete and a hamburguer. However, the eggs were undercooked, the hamburguer didn't have any bread, the egg on the top of it looked awful and they were both dripping in grease. It was a waste of money!

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.
