Delicious homemade

Welcoming and very charming place next to the castle, this tiny restaurant offers homemade traditional portuguese dishes and some original ones. The bacalhau com natas was very tasty! Deserts are also wonderful and the wines well chosen. Everything is fresh and delicious. Hoever, it is a very small... read more

We happened upon this restaurant by accident having stayed in hotel nearby. And we were glad we did. It was really a wonderful little restaurant, that was both a culinary delight and had an enjoyable atmosphere. First, the owners were warm, helpful, funny, and altogether a joy to chat with if you chose to. The food was outstanding because the... More

This is a gem of a place. Delicious food and wine, and the icing on the cake is the service and big hearted welcome from the husband and wife team who run it. If you are in Lisbon, don't miss this restaurant. You will need to book though as it is small - which adds to its intimacy and charm.... More

My wife and I visited here for Sunday lunch while staying in Lisbon for the weekend after reading some great reviews. It was a nice location and beautifully done out, but the food was disappointing and to be honest overpriced compared to more traditional alternatives nearby. A miss for us.

Right below the Castelo entrance you'll find this tiny restaurant operated by warm-hearted and communicative couple Stephane and Margarita (cook), who likes to share the recipes with you. They serve extremly good daily fresh food and offer wine from small portuguese winemakers. All tables occupied? No problem - sit down outside, relax and enjoy a glass of wine (or more...)... More

I had the tuna filet with red potatoes in a sesame sauce and steamed vegetables. My wife had the cod and potatoes. We shared a mixed salad and had the house white wine. Everything was delicious and cooked to perfection! Service was great! It's a place for couples since the space is limited - restaurant seats 8 (4 - 2... More

This is a lovely restaurant near the castle. Excellent value for the best food we had in Lisbon, with a friendly and welcoming reception from the owner. Only 6 tables so you have to book. Everything was local and top quality.

We loved the small intimate feeling of this restaurant. The charming couple who run Clara's, Stefan (server) and Margarita (cook), were absolutely wonderful hosts. Stefan was always on top of things to ensure our dinner was perfect and Margarita stepped out of the kitchen to say hello. The monk fish and hake, was delicious! Reservations are a must, they are...

The team effort of Guida & Stefano make your visit a memorable experience. We had the 'cod' dinner special and a cheese & olives starter. After reviewing Tripadvisor, I emailed and secured reservation for the visit. A smart & suggested move because they only have seating for twelve and 'one' seating. Stefano guided us on the wine selection and desert.... More

Lovely little restaurant and bar just on the way up to castle, although we didn't eat here the menu looked great and very reasonable ( fish and meat ), had a little seating area outside where you could sit and people watch with a mojito or two, or just a beer and glass of wine, like we did on our...
