Enjoyable, inexpensive fare

Amazingly inexpensive but fine-quality seafood. Unusual but tasty grilled tuna steak; amazingly thin but very large, cooked perfectly. Wines are adequate but not of high quality.

We ate here a few times, the food is the better we tried in Lisbon, also the place is pleasant. It's cosy and quiet. Further from the streets where any restaurant has waiters tried to convince to get inside their place. The waiters here are gentle and quite polyglot too. I enjoy the fish and the meet especially the beef... More

We were very happy with the atmosphere, the quality of the food and the service but when the bill came we were shocked! We were charged with bread and 2 plate of cheese that they served us without ordering and without being asked if we wanted to have, we thought it was a compliment of the house ...when we argued...

We went there today with my family. Everything seemed nice and all, food, etc... But we ended up paying a huge amount because they brought us bread and cheese without asking, as if they're appetizers, and charged us ridiculous amounts for them. I'm not even joking, our bill was at least 10€ more than what we had actually ordered. When... More

This is one of the better restaurants I tried in Lisbon. Many of the other highly rated restaurants had no reservations available and do not take walk-ins. The fish is fresh, served a variety of ways, and the service is friendly. They had plenty of meat options as well.

Excellent small family-run restaurant with a great selection of food of ample portions. Very popular, so consequently very busy, but staff are always on-hand, ready to meet your every need! Not widely advertised, but popular through word-of-mouth.

Faca & Garfo has a welcoming and inviting appearance from the outside which is more than justified by its interior if you are fortunate to get a table or have had the foresight to book ahead. On the first two nights of our stay in Lisbon we ate 'downtown' in the streets where restaurants abound. Not impressed, we decided to... More
