On a sunny warm day we decided to try the restaurant - with low expectations. Even if you have to pay 8.50 Euros to get inside the Castle, please do try it. The staff was very professional, friendly without being informal, and competent. We were the first to arrive and although it started to be quite busy, the staff was... More

The views of Lisbon, and seeing the Castle from outside, were great. The footing on uneven cobblestones is tricky at best and dangerous at worst. To be fair, the ground was wet which made it worse. The interior of the restaurant is interesting architecture. Ambient noise level is high which made conversation difficult. There is nothing special or memorable about... More

My partner and I were staying at a hotel nearby. Our concierge recommended this restaurant inside the nearby castle. We made 8 pm reservations on Saturday. We were greeted by charming staff who showed us to a table in front of a large window looking out over the castle walls overlooking the city below. The service was perfect. We felt... More

Lunch at this restaurant gave us the best view Lisbon has to offer, along with superb cuisine. Only thing I would say is that the waiters seemed unhappy and were arguing with each other but that appears fairly standard for Lisbon! But the food, wine and view completely overtook the poor service!

This restaurant has it all. Heavenly views of the Lisbon skyline, historic architecture, fantastic food and exceptional service. We dined here recently and were amazed with all it had to offer. Be sure to include this in your special nights out for dinner in Lisboa. I can highly recommend this restaurant to you.

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.
