touristy but delicious

Out of the restaurants that line up the front row of houses in Belem, I chose this one ...and was lucky. For little money I sat outdoors on the terrace, had delicious local food (octopus and sardines), served friendly and in a lovely setting.

Staff were very attentive & friendly. This restaurant was less busy than all the others on the tourist strip ... We chose it for this reason & weren't disappointed. Food was good & more reasonably price than all the others. We hada laugh with staff plus complimentary expresso.

We waited for ages to be seen to and were not so we went somewhere else! There was two waiters wondering around and not wanting to seat us! Also one of the waiters was eating his nails/fingers! Not impressed!

It's perfect after a morning of city sightseeing in Belem. We had lunch in the terrace. For couvert we had cheese, butter, sardine pate and bread. Then we had roasted sausage for share and dourada and grilled sardines as main dishes. Sardines were really tasty. Prices are OK. Unfortunately WiFi worked quite bad.

Don't let me put you off going here, because the food was good, just be aware of these little extras, bread €1, two small butters €1.60 and the sliced cheese €2.50 in this restaurant in Belém. The menu is in English and the steak meal and the chicken meal was very good and a nice bottle of house red for... More

Small family run restaurant in the heart of Belem. Typical Portuguese accompaniments (potatoes and green beans) with dinner. The seafood we had was fresh and delicious (Grilled Squid and John Dory). Service was pleasant on a quiet night.

As the others restaurants it has a terrace with no more that 10 tables and when we arrived at 2pm there was still available tables for us. We had to... More

Staying in Belem

Neighborhood Profile
Belem
Belém is the "capital of the Portuguese Discoveries" and a photographer's paradise. You can spend an entire day exploring this neighborhood: monuments (Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries), museums (Coach Museum, Centro Cultural de Belém) and breathtaking views of the Tagus river will make your visit worth your time. Belém also offers a variety of restaurants and cafes, namely the famous - and delicious - "Pastéis de Belém" (typical Portuguese custard tarts; make sure you buy an extra box of those!). Easily accessible from Lisbon's historic center, Belém is a must-do, especially if you're spending more than one day visiting the Portuguese capital.
