“Smaller than expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Underwhelming area, suffering badly from the Lisbon blight of graffiti. Look for the Japanese buffet restaurant - might not be 'local' but very good and outstanding value.

“A must-see in Lisbon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

Once the very heart of the city's night life, it has regained its allure in the last years. You can find a young crowd over there, enjoying life. Beware of the dark side of the neigborhood. Seek advice and find a way to visit it safely. It is going to worth every pennie.

“Small Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Many local, small restaurants located in this area. We also recommend a small local Fado Bar named Tosca da Chaco...The owner sings as well as his waiting staff and local friends. Open on Monday and Wednesday nights...no pressure, no cover charge...get there around 8 PM to get in...the music started around 9 PM
