“Be sure where you are going otherwise you will walk a lot and uphill.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Check your directions. Lots of turists lost looking for directions. We had to walk a lot to find a restaurant.

“Viva la Europe & eat in the street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

You must visit Bairro Alto. Fresh food cooking fills the night air, beautiful Fado music around every corner and grab a drink in one place and bring it down the street to eat dinner somewhere else. The rules are relaxed and the area & lighting absolutely lovely. If you are there late at night the cabs drive up the tiny streets & you can literally stand up from your table and step into a cab. Enjoy!!!

“A jewel high atop the city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Bairro Alto, a very old section of Lisbon at the top of the city which can be reached by the old time tram that is fun to take, is a mish-mosh of very narrow streets and alleys that seem far removed from the hustle bustle of downtown Lisboa. We found an excellent restaurant up a very narrow street named CASANOSTRA, which was delicious and specialized in Italian food. It is a bit of a walk, but the taxi can take you quite close. Also the view from the park once you take the tram is stunning.

“for the young”

Felt like a red light district at night and I felt uncomfortable. Didn't stay in the area just kept on walking......
