Description: The Trindade Beer Hall, the oldest and most beautiful beer hall in Portugal, was created in 1836, in the space which had, since the 13th century been occupied the Santissima Trindade Convent. In what used to be the monk's refectory, amongst the 19th century painted tile panels, the exceptionally good beer, and the best dishes of traditional Portuguese Cuisine and the freshest of seafood, you will discover why our costumers feel so well looked after at Trindade.

The food was good and the beer was cold, but it is on a list of stops for tourists without a doubt. The service is average and the food is decent, but the price was more than I paid for a better meal in the same neighborhood.

This place looks interesting and would be fine for a beer but avoid the food at all costs!! We should have known when we saw the waiters dressed as monks and the cling film wrapped cheese appetiser but it is so highly recommended in many guidebooks that we decided to stay... The codfish main was inedible (chewy nasty little pieces... More

The food was very good also was the beer. The service was horrible for us. It took us an 1 and half to get our bill. Also where your walking shoes, tons of steps to get to this place if you come from the main Boulevard.

We went to the restaurant as a colleagues was there 20 years ago, and he remembered it to be very good, and we were not disappointed. We ordered the hot and cold seafood platters to share, and we enjoyed the food a lot! The white wine recommended was also pretty good. We were sitting in the backyard, and had lots... More

We actually did both. The variety of tapas is amazing the cod spread is delicious as is the pulpo. For lunch sit at the tapas bar or near by tables for the afternoon specials. They also have a lovely outdoor dining area but we prefer the wonderful ambiance of the interior.

Decided to go into Biarra Alta on spec for a meal without consulting TA. Mistake! This place looked fun. Unfortunately, it serves dreadful food. First, they lumped some cheese on our table without asking and put it on our bill (ancient Portuguese tradition!), We hadn't wanted a block of cheese and lumpy bread for starters. Then our steaks were really... More

We had read that this restaurant was in the top 10 within the Chiado district and duly visited with great expectation. To say we were dissapointed would be an understatement ! The food was served in very minute portions and was either under or over cooked. It was barely edible , terribly presented and we felt insulted to be 'treated'... More

This was recommended for meat - wrongly. Tough, shoe leather steak. Not a good value. Almost offensive monks habits and noviciate habit costumes on the waiters. The crab meat pate appetizer was interesting. The fish was plain but competent. Ultimately the worst of 4 restaurants we ate for dinner at in Lisbon.

On the site of a former monestary with old pictoral ceramic mosaics throughout, who would expect a 170 year old brewery? Delicious food (including an amazing soup in a carved out loaf of bread!)and beer along with the surroundings, make this a must-do in Lisbon!

The location is a very large, very cool, very old beer hall, with arches and brick walls. Most everyone here is a tourist, inc. groups. But the food is good. They brought us a dish of cold shrimp, which we declined and instead ordered those cooked in garlic and butter. Tasty. My wife had the medallions of beef, which were... More
