We found this charming restaurant on our first day in Alfama and booked for an early dinner. Bookings are taken for inside seating only but if there's space you can sit outside. Miguel was our waitron (both for our first visit and on our last night) - a charming young man who looked after us... read more

We were eating already many times in this restaurant. More and more we think that is becoming a tourist trap. Tonight the steak ( 20 euro) was the most bad quality we ever got. The manager was fair and did not put it on the bill. Please St Antonio. Bring us good food next time .

Have been regular customers of this lovely Alfama resto since 2008 and it never disappointed. We like the ambience, both inside and on the patio next to the Sao Miguel church. We enjoy the seasonal menu, different every time and with some hints of nouvelle cousine such as the cold strawberry soup in the summer. And the service was always... More

We were looking for dinner and stumbled across this unassuming restaurant in the walkway between buildings. We ordered tapas, padron peppers, fried green beans, potato skins, fried chicken and black pudding sausage with apple sauce all of which were great but I wouldn't repeat the black pudding sausage. The wine we ordered was a €15 dollar bottle, it ended up... More

We stumbled across this restaurant late in the evening on our first night. They only let you drink or eat dessert outside but were happy to let us nibble some starters. The black pudding was delicious and stafg were super nice.

Well hidden in the maze of alfama we managed to find this restaurant on recommendation of friends. The place well known to the locals so by just asking on the streets to the locals we were pointed in the right direction. The restaurant has a great easy going atmosphere with many old photos of celebrities on the wall. I had... More

Nothing on the menu really attracted me, so I chose the most expensive item: steak. 19 euro. but I got a small peace of meat, with gorgonzola sauce an a lot of fat french fries. They didn't seem to make a big effort. Not worth going.

This restaurant was recommended to us and it probably is a delight to many. For me, it was "meh". We ordered the fried chicken pieces which were rather heavy on the salt and consisted of chicken backs. The shrimp were very, very heavily breaded and tasted like they were from a freezer..the blood pork sausage was velvety but the applesauce... More

The walk to the restaurant through the winding streets of Alfama in the dark was atmospheric and fun. In addition to the wonderful food, the restaurant space is really lovely, and the staff were courteous and professional. A great dinner in a special place.

Very nice local food in the old town. Take a walk through the old city and land here for a nice traditional meal. The restaurant is small and full of pictures of celebrities who have visited. Definitely a nice place to have a meal.
