Description: This neighborhood restaurant is not in a great area but it is charming and cooks tremendous Portugese food. We ate there 3 out of 5 nights in Lisbon. IMPORTANT: They have two menus--one in Portugese and one in English. All of the very traditional dishes are on the Portugese menu and not listed on the English menu for some reason. We had bachau lau (salted cod baked in olive oil and garlic--yummy!), grilled pork wrapped in bacon and grilled with green pepper (fantastic!), grilled salmon and grilled black pig. Look around at what the Portugese are ordering and just point and say that's what you want--the wait staff speaks fairly good English. Almost everyone was Portugese from that neighborhood so we felt it was very authentic. Prices ran about 7-12 euros per person for the main course and it came with a trip to the salad bar included in the price.

A hidden gem in Lisbon. We had trouble finding it but all the way was worth it when we had our 300g Filet Mignon before us. This is all you need, excellent meat, perfectly spiced and grilled and just this amazing moment when put that steak in your mouth!

Went here for dinner as it was close to Hostel. Steak is very well priced 400 gram Sirlion for 8 Euro or 500gram for 9 Euro. Steak was very good and salad bar is included. Deserts looked amazing although didn't try one this time. Service was great overall a great experience.

This restaurant is popular among locals. Be careful when you are offered a plate...just because you will be charged for EVERYTHING! Service very mediocre...especially when they are very busy.

We went to Carvoaria several times. It’s a good place for groups and families. My family prefers the Posta Mirandesa (a large piece of delicious grill meat). The portions are generous at a very good price.

Our pension recommended this restaurant and we ended up eating here several times during our 5-night stay in Lisbon. It's a grill house and it's affordable and delicious. Other than a few tourists, everyone dining there is local. Every dish we tried was terrific but the absolute favorites included a rack of pork loin wrapped in bacon and green pepper--you... More
