Best place for food in Lisbon!

The best food we've discovered in Lisbon! Minutes away from the city centre, just on the bottom of the castle. They do special meals daily, which are not very expensive at all, amazing taste and great staff! Highly recommended!

Restaurant faciltiy and feature is nice and you just get this comfortable feeling while sitting inside! There are some displayed books to check too. Food we ordered (Humus starter, vegetable gratin and tomato mozzarella panini) was tasty and service was very friendly. It was a nice experience!

The Mozarella salad is simply divine, but your dont go there for food really only the ambiance and the possibility to just chill out from the usual portuguese cafes, just a bit too noisy at times so POIS café makes a nice day break or evening coffee. Reading of your newspape many languages available make it thst you dont want... More

More often than not we would end up here for an after dinner coffee, which became after dinner coffee and desert. It just works as a coffee shop and has a cool soundtrack playing. Good range of cakes and deserts on offer and great staff.

We tried the steak and cod, both dishes were fine, and the service very friendly and fast, for a restaurant in the middle of the bustling center, this one takes the price.

Great quirky cafe with an eclectic menu including Lebanese, Austrian, Portuguese, etc. We had a soup and a veal curry quiche, both tasted great and had large serving sizes. Note that cheap, but affordable and worth a visit. Very busy during peak times, but service was quick and friendly.

Food and drinks ok but far too expensive for what it is, so by far over rated! Unfriendly service by lady with dark hair wearing glasses. Definately not pleased with tourists...

After reading some reviews on trip advisor we opted for this cafe on our way to exploring Alfama. We had the brunch with cold meats and cheese, and it was huge - didn't need to eat again until the evening. Very nice though, and interesting selection of bread, coffees and juice - I had mint and melon, which was unusual!... More
