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

We stopped here to enjoy the great view over a chilled beer. More expensive than than the places outside the castle walls, but don't let this pit you off relaxing whist taking in the breathtaking vista. The menu looked interesting and the presentation of the restaurant looked first class.

The food was excellent, which it should be with such an excellent view of Lissabon! Served in a Michelin style in excellent surroundings.

I was looking at some of the other reviews, and was amazed at the negative ones. Perhaps it helps if you speak Portuguese and are familiar with Portugal and its customs and culture. I have eaten three times at the Casa do Leão, and I would recommend the bacalhau. And don't be surprised that the amuse-bouches end up on the... More

Thank you Flavio for your kind welcome and hospitality last week when we came to your restaurant. The white port was lovely! Our only complaint was our unsympathetic handling by your Castle box office. We arrived, we were forced to telephone to book, we booked within their sight, and still they waited for you to contact them to confirm our... More

We took a long walk before we reached the Castle de Sao Jorge. Wanting to spend more time inside, we changed our plan and stayed in the castle for lunch.
