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.

A real treat if your expectations are properly calibrated. This is fast and furious Portuguese grub done with great atmosphere. Their strength is the standard regional churrasqueira routine. Don't expect refined fare here. What you will get is tasty charcoal grilled chicken, meat, fish and other seafood, all done well and true to the spirit of the place. It's frenetic... More

I went here upon recommendation from my hostel. Lucky for me, I was by myself so I grabbed a free chair at the bar as the line was out the door. (If you're 1 or 2 people, definitely go right on in and see if there's a free spot, otherwise go before 8 if you want to avoid the lines).... More

In spite of its name, the food served is typically Portuguese. I went there two or three times during my stay in Lisbon and I always had a good experience. For a very good price you can get a typical Portuguese meal of meat or fish with rice and potatoes in a nice local atmosphere. It's usually quite busy so... More
