This restaurant is recommended in, among others, Lonely Planets guide of Lisbon. It was situated just a few minutes walk from the apartment we lived in during our stay in Lisbon and so we decided to have this restaurant as our first proper dining place in Lisbon. The food was good, but far from excellent, with the side dishes especially,... More

If you want to have dinner at a romantic place, it can be a good place to go. If you are picky at food and service, you'd better find another place. The service is slow. It's way too crowded even you sit outside. We ordered a bottle of wine, the waiter opened it for us and left broken cork in... More

We don't like waiting with the other tourists. If you get to this great restaurant right before it opens and sit down, you'll have the benefit not only of a great meal, but watching the crowds stand around waiting for you to leave . . . many of the local favorites are done well here. The seating is outside and... More

This is a great restaurant. It's tucked away and has a very nice patio where one can sit outside and enjoy a great meal. I would recommend the grilled fish which was very fresh and tasty. Maybe a little heavy on the olive oil front. Definitely worth a visit.

...many of the tourist-friendly restaurants in Alfama. Prawns, bacalhao gratin and hearty blood sausage were all simply and mostly well prepared. The sausage was a little dry and tough from having been baked but I suspect this is how it's traditionally served and the north African spicing was delicious. The staff were all friendly and the outside seating environment is... More

The restaurant has a wonderful ambiance, and the service is great. We had a wonderful bottle of Vinho Verde, however I agree with some other reviewers that there is an air of complacency as the food was fairly average. We had the night before ate better food for two thirds the price. However great district and the best jazz buskers!

Expect to wait if you come here without a booking during full season. Not really an issue the place is really nice and the staff friendly. The food is expensive by Lisbon standard though, this would not be an issue if it were tasty. The blood sausage was cold and tasteless (expect for cumin). The cod gratin was decent but... More

We had dinner in Santo Antonio last night and loved it. The terrace is pretty, the staff excellent and the food delicious! Great vegetarian options which are hard to find in Portugal. I would definitely recommend!

Very romantic restaurant. It is not like the other touristy restaurants in Alfama and thank god no Fado! Delicious food but we would recommend to stick with the starters (2 or 3) that's more than enough. However, the main courses are also really good (we ate here 2 nights because of the delicious food)!!

Deep in the heart of the Alfama, this restaurant is worth the trek through the narrow streets (in fact, that's part of the charm). The restaurant itself is charming, with tons of signed pictures on the walls and a nice patio for dining al fresco. We had excellent service, and the Portuguese fare was delicious and excellently prepared. It does... More
