It's castelo

I've eaten here more than 15 times the last 15 years. The food is good, even sometimes very good. The wines are excellent, but the environment is really the top. It's best to make a reservation, or let your hotel reception do it.

We booked here for a large group of us and sat inside in a dramatic arched restaurant rather than outside on the terrace in case it was too cold out there. A good choice. We had a large round table in a beautiful restaurant. Stone walls and ceiling, white tablecloths very friendly and efficient servers. A good choice of wines... More

There are several restaurants in the Castelo and this is by far the one to choose. It has an excellent outdoor seating area with spectacular views of the ancient city wall and surrounding city outside the walls. (The restaurant is literally atop the city wall.) This is a white tablecloth restaurant with excellent food and superb service. We stopped by... More

Went for lunch on a wet saturday. We were not hurried at all as we did not really want to venture back out. Perhaps pricier than most but the menu of the day was excellent with grest wines. Great service and ambiance.

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighborhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
