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

We had heard some good reviews of this restaurant, so went there on a Tuesday afternoon at close to 1 pm. It said it opened at 12, but the door was closed, and even if someone was inside they ignored us! So then on Friday we went there again, this time arriving at 3:15 pm, people were sitting outside eating,... More

Chosen by our tour guide, who lives nearby, this restaurant proved to a very good introduction to Portuguese food in a congenial and informal atmosphere. The walls are filled with celebrity photos (referenced in the menu) and the owner/server was friendly and helpful (explaining the difference between Sagres and Super Bock drinkers) but staying out of football debates. Everyone was... More

Tempted by the choice of vegetarian choice (so difficult to find anywhere in Portuguese restaurants) we head to Santo Antonio. It was the best veggi food I have had in Portugal. Ok, I was hungry, lived on cheese, olives and bread for a while and missed proper warm veggi dish... Have to admit, tapas were huge but too expensive. Fried... More

Hugely underwhelming, verging on awful. We are a range if fish and meat dishes including starters. All were below par, the place suffers from complete complacency, trading off its location, and tourists unable to find better. This in a land of great food and wine. My carafe of red wine here was bottom shelf discount supermarket stuff. The White was... More

Just the fact that one of greatest saints was born on the place where Church dedicated to this Saint was built is enough to attract ones attention. It was said that St. Antonio helped people who were lost... If you feel you've lost yourself, visit this place... you'll might feel better. :)

I booked this restaurant before we arrived in Lisbon and I am so glad we did, because it was the best meal we had in Lisbon. The staff were very helpful in recommending dishes and wine parings. The food was delicious and portions generous. We enjoyed a romantic birthday dinner and didn’t want to leave! It was a great end... More

Yet another great Portuguese eating experience. Greet warmly on arrival and enjoyed a fantastic meal. It is in a great location in the old town. Be careful when trying the potato skins, they are addictive and may leave you with little room for your meal.
