We arrived in Lisbon for a conference and went to the famous Bairro alto district for a few drinks and food. They seated us without a reservation at 9pm and we had a selection of 4 seafood between the four of us. The tables were close together - but then the size of the rooms are very small! My sardines were fresh and grilled with salt, there were potatoes and greens on the side (not many though). A salad could have been better for the warm weather than vegetables. Another in our group had squid and said it was amazing.
We had beer with our meal so cannot comment on the wine.
The service was good and the food arrived quickly.
All in all a good first meal, not brilliant but a good start to the holiday when we didn't look advance.
