Honest cuisine appreciated by locals

The place was packed with local people, some queuing, which is usually a good sign in such a touristy Lisbon district... Good unpretentious food served timely by ameanable waiters. Busy place , a bit noisy, but the ambiance was cool

I ate here last night & was food poisoned. I ordered the Grilled Chicken Lisbon Style & have been VIOLENTLY ill since just after leaving. I ate there b/c my AirBnB host suggested it but found it a) very touristy & b) expensive. Not only did the food make me sick, it was very dry/bland. Any restaurant that makes you... More

Headed up to bairro alto for a meal and experience the bars, purely by chance we ended up in this restaurant and was really happy we did. The service and the food was superb, restaurant was immaculate. Would definitely recommend to all.

I've been here back in September 2014 and I found it whilst I was hanging around Bairro Alto with my girlfriend to find a restaurant. We end up in this one without any knowledge about it. It was one of the best restaurant experience we've had in Portugal. The food is great( wonderful Acorda de camarao and Polvo a Lagareiro).... More

We chose this restaurant by reading the review. It was almost full at 7:30 pm when the restaurant just opened. We ordered seafood dishes. While waiting, we admired their modern ceramic wall decoration. The waiters are polite and humorous. Most of them speak fluent English. I notice that all the waiters are males while all the cookers back in the... More

Found by chance whilst wandering about on a Monday evening in January. Best rabbit I have ever tasted...really tender with a delicious clam sauce and game chips. My husband had a remarkably succulent swordfish steak. Loved the clean tiled interior and friendly waiters. At one point I was slightly disconcerted to be the only female in the place.....

Booked this restaurant for a dinner with friends to celebrate the New Year. It's always great to have a meal in Bairro Alto and go out for drinks afterwards in that chilled-out neighbourhood, but I never seem to find a nice restaurant to have a good meal. This restaurant just changed my opinion! We arrived late and, although we had... More

Good food, top service and we felt very welcome. There was some misunderstanding when ordering the food and we ended up getting very similar dishes (same type of fish). We complained because we really wanted to try the other fish - we were left with our original dish (it was really good) but we got a small piece of the... More

Our B&B host recommended this place to u for a NYE dinner and party. The restaurant was fully booked. The a la carte dinner was o high quality and the service was fast and very friendly. The NYE party afterwards was very nice.

Sinal Vermelho is one more restaurant in Bairro Alto, not that I would have stopped there if our hotels Concierge would not have recommended it. This would have been a mistake. The food is original and good (try the pork Alentejo style with clams) and the wine recommendations were spot on. In fact I was surprised about the large selection... More
