Lonely Planet Recommendation has become a Scam We had a meal at Faca&Garfo and found that the bread (1,70) and cheese (4,95) we're not complementary at the end of the meal when the bill arrived. When questioned, we were told that they were placed on our table for us to decide not to eat if we did not want to... More

High quality, courtesy and marvellous place although small. Located near the mosteiro do Carmo, it is a very good place to go in couple

Excellent local food, warm welcoming in this small typical restaurant. Do not go there too late as it is quite successful. We recommend it to tourists who are there for a few days to start a nice evening!

Ate here during a short city break in Lisbon. The food and service were good but the menu was limited and the restaurant, although immaculately clean, was a little basic and too brightly lit. We had mixed cheese and olive starter followed by octopus and dessert. With wine and coffee the bill came to approx 60 euros for 2 people.... More

Decided to try this restaurant based on other reviews and the fact it was just around the corner from our hotel. Ordered the usual sardine pâté, cheese and bread starter. The waitress returned to say the cheese we asked for had ran out, and suggested a different local cheese. I knew from when I looked at the menu that this... More

We had lunch here and enjoyed best-in-class seafood. The place might look inconspicuous (and a bit tourist-focused), but indeed offers great family atmosphere and great food. Pricing is decent as well.

Ate at Faca & Garfo this evening. Quite different from every other establishment we have eaten at over the last few days. Previously we have been provided tap water when requested. Here, it's sparkling or still. Elsewhere the cheese and bread is complementary, here it appeared on the bill. Small salad ordered, "grande" at the till. They are so oblivious... More

On the recommendation of our B&B hostess, we tried out this restaurant. What a treat! We paid much less at this restaurant than others for much superior quality food. The restaurant itself was comfortable and appealing. The service, friendly and helpful with menu and wine suggestions. We returned for a second time to try different items and were equally pleased...

This place was fine, except that we compared it to a great place we had eaten the night before. The fresh cheese was good, and we knew it would turn up on the bill, so no surprises. I had the black pork steak, which was meaty and tasty. Two of us had the grilled sardines, which were excellent, and one... More
