Lunch from the ramparts

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!

Upon the recommendation of our daughter and son-in-law who spent their honeymoon in Portugal 10 years ago, we had our hotel concierge make a reservation for the Casa do Leao in St. George's Castle. Our expectations were high, and I can safely say, they were met far beyond what we anticipated. We took a cab from the Avenida de Liberdade... More

A glass of wine, some bread and olives and the view made a perfect end to our tour of the castle. Although we didn't want a full meal this was no problem and the wine and service were excellent. Next time we are in Lisbon we will make a point of booking a meal here.

Our last day in Lisbon, thought we would visit the castle and have a nice lunch there, prompted by other diners glowing reviews here on Trip Advisor. The service was excellent, if a bit too efficient (we found this generally in Lisbon restaurants - we like time to savour each course) . We had a great view being first to... More

We first came to this Restaurant 14 years ago. It is impressed on our memory because it was our first night 'sans enfants' together after our second child was born.

We enjoyed a fabulous lunch with unbelievable views. The service was outstanding and we liked the local flair of the menu. Not inexpensive, but was worth it.

I had the chance to visit this restaurant for dinner in the beginning of the year and I'm glad I did it. First of all, we were lucky to be the only ones at the restaurant for dinner on a Friday night (probably because it was the 2nd of January) which made everything even nicer. We were greeted by a...

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.
