We heard about this restaurant ahead of time and decided to book a reservation in advance. If you want to sit on the patio under the growing grape vines, which trust me you do, there is really no point in making a reservations since the patio is a first come, first serve basis.

We had a long walk through Alfama on a hot afternoon. This place looked quite smart and attractive with an old vine growing over the patio. We were thirsty. 20 minutes later we were still thirsty. The young waiter seemed to have no idea that we might be more interested in getting a drink than snacking on the olives and... More

San Antonio de Alfama is a nice restaurant, small and located off the main streets in Alfama. There aren't many tables so reservation might be useful, the service is nice and the menu is... Well... I'd say suited for tourists, so do not expect any fancy things but quite basic Bacalau, Frango and so on. This was the only drawback... More

It Was the worse meal of our 10 days in Portugal. Very disappointing. Food was medium quality, the waiters unable to explain the menu so we've got some food instead of other, very Small portions and a very touristic menu (fettuccine, mozzarella etc) without traditional local dishes. And on top of ALL, very very expensive! Unacceptable.

My boyfriend and I read about this restaurant in our lonely planet travel guide. We found it fairly easily surprisingly down a lot of windy streets. Upon arrival we were advised if we wanted to sit in the courtyard (trust me, you do) it's a 45 minute wait, this was 9pm on a Saturday night so we knew it would... More

Were there on Friday 31 August 2015 and surprised about rather few people waiting to get a table. Staff was very friendly and helpful and a table was read for us after 20 min. Food was good but not exceptional, the location is cosy. But: guests were exclusively tourists and soon we realised why: the prices are too high for... More

The venue is nice. I had a fantastic dinner under the wine grapes. I only go for tapas which was an excellent selection. The wine is also exceptional. On arrival I was told the place was full although the second floor was empty, maybe closed. After a while two tables became free and we took a seat at the bigger... More

Excellent restaurant in the middle of Alfama, one of the oldest districts of Lisbon. The food is amazing, with lots of choices to share including portuguese "alheira" and "morcela", several kinds of meat and fish in small portions for you to share with everyone in the table. It has lots of choices for drink, specially the typical sangria which is... More
