I was really upset,... More

Impossible because for lunch we do not accept reservation. Only reservation for diner we begin to serve lunch at12h00 until 15h30 if it's full inside just wait a little bit outside on our bench. I think you are frustrated people. More

The restaurant just below the castle walls manages only 12 comfortably, so book it! The hospitality is impeccable and the food matching. We shared the Portuguese meat platter and a Mediterranean salad to start, followed by stuffed squid and monkfish in prawn sauce. Food was freshly prepared and tasted excellent. Special recommendation for the strawberry tarte to finish. Food and... More

We had an amazing dinner in this small, personable restaurant! Stephane & Guida were so welcoming, and the atmosphere was cozy! Reservations were strongly recommended, but you can enjoy a little refreshment right outside the door, which is steps away from the entrance to the Castle! The hosts are very accommodating, and our last evening in Lisboa is one we... More

Our hosts, as noted in other reviews, were very friendly and welcoming. I was more appreciative of the food than my wife who felt it was only average.

Our hosts, as noted in other reviews, were very friendly and welcoming. I was more appreciative of the food than my wife who felt it was only average. I would recommend this intimate room, though there are other choices in Alfama I would recommend more.

Reserve a table by phone or for two hours later, before you go into the castle. We can confirm that in 2014 the service an the dishes are as good as written in ohter articels for 2013.

We were visiting the castle area, with our two teenage children. Having spotted this small place next to the castle steps, we initially stopped for something to drink late morning and took advantage of sitting outside on the cushioned just next to the door, it was mid February but a wonderful sun trap. After visiting the castle itself, we decided... More

We found this nice little restaurant by chance while walking up to the castle and what a nice surprise!!! Run by the owners themselves and as it was full inside for lunch, we were lucky to sit on the nice bench outside (in December and we were not cold :-)) We ate an assortment of sausages and cheese as we...
