Description: The Trindade Beer Hall, the oldest and most beautiful beer hall in Portugal, was created in 1836, in the space which had, since the 13th century been occupied the Santissima Trindade Convent. In what used to be the monk's refectory, amongst the 19th century painted tile panels, the exceptionally good beer, and the best dishes of traditional Portuguese Cuisine and the freshest of seafood, you will discover why our costumers feel so well looked after at Trindade.

“Great food, make the effort to go there!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by a Portuguese friend and really did live up to expectations. In a converted monastery so pretty inside with a high vaulted ceiling. We went there on a Thursday evening at around 2100 and it was heaving although we were seated within 10 minutes and you can buy a beer while you are queuing. Limited menu but the shellfish did look really good, but we both went for beef dishes served in the most delicious house sauce. Main courses were around 10 Euros upwards so reasonable value as well. We walked there from our hotel near Rossio Square and there are a lot (really a lot) of stairs to navigate so get the Eiffel lift or funicular to lose the height if you less mobile. Make the effort to go there, great place!

“Atmospheric and not just tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This restaurant lived up to my expectations and to its description in most of the guidebooks and sites. It is indeed a canteen style operation in the eye-pleasingly tiled hull of a former monastery. The food on offer was simple but well cooked and substantial - a bit like an aircraft meal; steak, chicken or fish. The beers were excellent - although I had hoped for something a little more artisanal or home produced. The service was charmingly friendly if somewhat arbitrary. It certainly helps to practice your best eye contact techniques if you would like to be served speedily. Punters were a mix of tourists and locals - one table was taken up by what must have been a local football team celebrating a victory, others were taken up by family groups. All were having a good time which will be my abiding memory of the cervejaria.

“Wonderful food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This was recommended by the owner of the apartment we rented and we are thrilled we went! We had amazing steaks at great prices and the service was wonderful! He was able to recommend to our tastes and was fabulous with our children, bringing their food first. This is a fun place and perfect for those looking for a delicious meal and are traveling with children! Definitely try their cocoa cake for desert!!!

“Great beer and steak!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Great atmosphere! We had beer and delicious steaks. My steak was also served with a side of Iberian ham--a meat lovers dream! The soup (Caldo Verde) was fantastic! Fun spot to dine.
