For a solid week, we had scoured Lisbon and the surrounding areas. On day eight, we went to the Castle for a leisurely exploration. We came upon Casa Do Leao and based our dining decision on the glorious view. Not only was the setting beautiful, but so was the food and service. We dined on wonderful salads, shrimp and seafood...

We almost discarded the place on the basis that all the outdoor tables were empty despite the lovely weather and beautiful view. But we took the chance, sat down and ordered the 4-course meal and a bottle of rose wine. The food was generally tasty and the fish starter, a lightly seared tuna, was absolutely delicious. With the beautiful view,... More

Inside the Sao Jorge Castle, with a breath taking view, you'll find this restaurant. The restaurant is formal and not inexpensive, but the food, service and ambiance are of the highest quality.

Restaurant in the Castelo de San Jorge. A bit pricey, but worth it. Eat or just have a drink. The view is wonderful. Definitely sit outside. The food is rich comfort food - we had the tournedos and the cataplana de mariscos. Liked both. Make a reservation so you can get a discount on the entry ticket for the castle.

Dinner here was one of the items we booked a week in advance for, ensuring we would be safe and not be turned away. The restaurant upon our arrival was not busy, however we were glad we had a reservation for those "just in case "times. Our dinners were served hot and fresh with a grand view of Lisbon. Our... More

Enjoyed lunch on the terrace after exploring the castle. Mushroom spinach risotto and shrimp and mango salad were delicious. We shared those starters for a light lunch. You pay a premium for the stunning view and well worth it coupled with the good food.

Right in the heart of the castle, the architecture of this restaurant is stunning, very romantic and views overlooking the entire city. We stayed at Solar Do Castelo and they arranged a table for us to celebrate my birthday. We tend to eat late so had asked for a table at 9pm - not a problem and when we arrived... More

One year we tried booking a reservation at this restaurant, it was fully booked. The following year I booked this place a couple of months in advance for lunch in August. The dinning room was very attractive and medieval with large tables. The service was first class and friendly in an old world charm. Try asking for a table Near... More

This place felt like a discovery. A taxi drove us to the top of a big hill, and there was Castelo San Jorge, a massive castle that overlooks all of lisbon. After stopping by the castle ticket booth (across the street from the caste) to tell them about our reservation, we purchased a discounted ticket and entered the castle. Just... More
