The locals were queuing to get in this place at lunchtime, so we joined the queue and were eventually seated at a table with a half dozen or so locals. It was loud from the locals all talking at once, and the air was thick with the cooking smells from the charcoal grill. The food was great, the sea-bass was... More

We went there quite late and got a seat at the bar. You immediately got the impression that it's a local restaurant (we were the only non-Portuguese there), a bit chaotic but very charming. Unfortunately we ordered after 11pm so we only got chicken (from the grill) but it was delicious. The food tastes great and the prices are quite... More

We decided to try this place during our trip to Lisbon, after reading great reviews about this place. It was really crowded and we had to wait for some time before we got seated. Once we started eating we realized the wait was totally worth it. We ordered soup of the day, prawns, sausages and green wine. The prawns were... More

I went yesterday to this small and typical restaurant, suggested by a local met in bairro alto while trying to avoid touristic and fake places. There was a long and chaotic queue outside this place and i thought ok we have to do it! After about 40 minutes and pressing friendly the waiter we managed to sit with other local... More

It's one of the most typical taverns you can find, with great tasty food! Every time a foreign friend asks for advise for places to eat simple, good and traditional food this is the first place i think of. This food tastes like home!

Received a recommendation from our tour guide from Wild Walker tours and made it here on a super rainy day. It was packed. Completely packed so me and a friend sat at the bar. We had the Portuguese sausage with a fried egg on top and a grilled scabbard(?) fish dish. The sausage was good and if you're looking for... More

Together with a few other places in the same street (e.g. Principe do Calhariz), Casa da India is one of the best places for a (cheap) dinner near Bica / Bairro Alto. Usual Portuguese food, very well prepared, low/honest price (let's say 12 to 18 euros on average, for a full dinner). A treat they sometimes have: ameijoas (clams) as... More

We ate here with the two of us. The decorations and looks of the place are not appealing, but the quality of food and service is good. We had the cuttlefish and salmon, both very good. The place is packed with a nice mixture of locals and tourists (e.g. us and local firemen for takeaway). Good value for many and... More

We were recommended this restaurant from the hostel we were staying at. Without further research we were a little disappointed when we assumed that the food would be of Indian decent and it was not. This restaurant however did succeed in providing truly authentic Portuguese food. My friends who eat meat were very delighted with their dishes. However, their vegetarian... More

Was recommended by our host and it was very good, not at all expensive and very authentic. Quick service. Noisy but bustling pleasant noise.
