“Nice little restaurant with good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Bairro Alto is full of very average touristy restaurants so we were very glad to stumbled upon O Barrigas. The restaurant had a nice ambience, good service, tasty food and was reasonably priced. During our 6 nights in Lisbon, we ended up coming here for dinner twice. We tried out the cod with egg and potatoes, iberian pork with lemon sauce and spicy chicken - it was all very good. Definitely recommend the baked apples with port wine as dessert!

This restaurant is a nice change from the other places in the area where they pretty much serve you a piece of meat or fish slabbed carelessly onto a plate. Don't waste your time, money and stomach space at those other places with huge menus translated into millions of languages and come here instead!

“Good food, reasonable price, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had bife pimenta and porco asado, both with a very nice herby mash. The pork was very good, good enough to try and nick the recipe.
Bairro Alto is touristy. But this place played it just right. Bill for two, with dessert and bottle of wine was 50E.

Recommended.

“Good food, reasonable price”

We ordered rice with octopus and the veal stew. Both dishes were very taste full and well prepared. The ambiance was comfortable even as the restaurant is very small. Service was friendly and quick.

Restaurant is definitely a nice spot in Bairro Alto. We had a very nice dinner there - cod fish and octopus were delicious. Prices were normal too.

“Nice little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Though this restaurant is probably not the best you can find in Lisbon if you want to have traditional Portugese food, it is still quite good. The owner is very nice and attentive and the food is well prepared. My sister had the bacalhau and it was a bit too oily but the rest of the dishes were fine. You do get quite big portions for a small price; after an appetizer and main dish we were all really full in a good way. I'm vegetarian and I had a nice dish of pasta with spinach, mushrooms and cheese. This restaurant is certainly a good compromise if you're with both people who like to eat meat or fish and vegetarians. We paid (4 people) about 85 euros for a nice dinner with a bottle of wine and some other drinks.
