Our group of 4 chose to have lunch at the Casa Do Leao after reading the great reviews on trip advisor.During our week end break in Lisbon we had previously dined at Darwin's Cafe and Marquess de Palma and expected the same level of excellent service and good food as all 3 restaurants are in a similar price range.

You get free tickets into the castle if you reserve...that'll save €8.50 pp. The location is fantastic and the sun sets right in front of this side of the complex. You can see all of Lisbon from the various vantage points around and on the castle walls. The restaurant has a somewhat limited and in some respects expensive menu, especially... More

Made reservations a couple of days in advance, glad we did. Got a perfect table with fantastic views. The sangria was okey, nothing more. But the food was good. The price was s little bit expensive, but i guess for a view like that they can charge some extra. The shrimp risotto was tasteful, should have a little bit more... More

Good food, fair prices, cool viewpoint, great Alentejo wine - not much more to add! A place to take a break during a visit to the castle.

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.
