This brewery is the oldest, and the most beautiful in the country, dating back to the XIX century. The building was originally a convent, whose construction started during the XIII century. Despite this interesting historical background, what is most interesting in this space is the decoration. The walls have some magnificent panels of tiles from the XIX century. And the... More

Definitely the worst service ever- rude waiters who couldn't be bothered to take our orders and left us for 30 mins without bringing drinks. The food is bland and mediocre catering for the masses of tourists queuing up to get in! There are so many better restaurants in Lisbon; don't waste your money here.

Wonderful atmosphere to eat lunch and try Bohemia Sabres. The clams in a wine and garlic sauce is a must have! An unforgettable dining experience but can b pricey!

Previously a monastery now a trendy restaurant. As the saying goes don't judge the book by its cover, the outside is totally misleading the restaurant is cavernous inside with a nice courtyard outside. There we 9 of us and we sat outside in the courtyard. Much easier to talk as its very noisy inside. Seafood is the order of the... More

A tourist-trap, yes. Buses waiting at the door and long lines of foreigners... The scam is typical for foreigners: in the menu they announce at 2.00 euros the "zapateira in the shell" (which was delicious, anyway) but the price in the check is... 6.99 euros. When we object that this was not the price indicated in the menu the Asian... More

It started as a convent's dining room, and the walls are still lined with colorful tiles from the 1800´s. It was also one of Lisbon's first beer houses (opened in 1836) and is now considered a historic restaurant. This is the oldest and most beautiful brewerys in Portugal. Great steaks, variety of seafood and traditional Portuguese dishes, especially the Cod.... More

We obviously got caught by the tourist guide here, granted, but given the setting and the history - it did seem worth a trip. We were greeted by a fake monk which was fun, and offered a nice table, surrounded by other groups and couples. The bread was whisked down in front of us, and some cheese and butter in... More

Had not visited this Restaurant for 20 years. As this was a Restaurant with one of the best steaks in Lisbon we decided to return. The good old days were definitely over. The quality of dishes was poor. The steak was of bad quality, cold and far too expensive. The sea food was of bad quality and most was returned.... More

Let's be clear: we were a group of 100 people. That can explain the experience. The place is authentic. The food however... Nothing to comment, it was just bland. Their beer is good though.
