Nice square in the center. The surrounding buildings are also beautiful. In the corner of the square is the subway.

Praca dos Restauradores is a square in the central Baixa region of Lisbon. It is located at the southeast end of Avenida da Liberdade, near Rossio Square. Praca dos Restauradores is surrounded by buildings from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. There are many of the city's most iconic buildings around the square, including the Italian pink facade of the Foz Palace, built between the 18th and 19th centuries, and the Teatro Eden with its beautiful facade by architect Cassiano Branco and the Condes Cinema building. The Teatro Eden and the Condes Cinema Building are great examples of the Art Deco architectural style. The Condes Cinema was built by the architect Raul Tojal . Currently, it houses the Hard Rock Cafe. The square was named to celebrate the restoration of Portugal's independence in 1640. At the centre of the plaza towers a 30-metre-high white obelisk. This is a must-see place in Lisbon.

Dear Sirs:
Last week we were visiting your Hard Rock restaurant in Lisbon Baixa Chiado, where we were attended by an employee whose name is Joanna (Jlo)
The employee has a very bad temper and is very unfriendly, rude and unpleasant and questioned us a lot about our private lives, at that moment we felt quite harassed. At the time when he had to collect the bill from us in a hurry and he did not even let us finish or enjoy the place.
We realized that she gave us the wrong money change with which she kept € 40, which was not for her tip, obviously with her bad attention we should not have left her anything.
She was very entertained and the food took a long time because of her and the dishes came dirty from her hands
We have been to a lot of hard rock and you guys have very good staff
We like Lisbon

We are immensely grateful that this lady named Jlo is required since we feel quite bad about what happened and that she also learns to speak English a little better, as an American company that is Hard Rock.

Customers come first

Thanks happy New Year
attentively

Right at the Southeast end of "Avenida da Liberdade", one of the most important avenues of Lisbon, you will find "Praça dos Restauradores". A bustling area, lots of traffic and pedestrians ... This is downtown! The square commemorates the Portuguese Independence from Spain in 1640, after 40 years of Spanish rule over Portugal. A limestone obelisk at its center was inaugurated 1n 1886, known as "Monumento aos Restauradores" and it honors all those brave men responsible for the restauration of the nation's Independence. The famous neo-manueline railway station - "Estação do Rossio", as well as the "Praça do Rossio", are just at a short walking distance. Enjoy!

This plaza is right near the Lisbon train station and in the middle of the busy street in the business area. The obelisk and the statue stand stately in the center. Very impressive! Across the street is the station for the funicular.

A lovely large monument, in a busy area of Lisbon. Loads of traffic. But worth taking a look at, if your in the area.

This was a very busy area and probably the busiest that we saw whilst in Lisbon for our short trip - very clean around this area even so - be careful of the pavements when it rains as they do get very slippery.

The monument here is great to see up close.

During our four day stay in Lisbon, we stayed in a hotel that is located not all that far from the Praca dos Restauradores. Consequently, we had the opportunity to walk through this city plaza on a number of occasions.
Each time we passed through, there was lots of traffic in the vicinity with many tour buses dropping off and picking up passengers at hotels located on either side of the plaza.
There are also many shops, cafes, restaurants and bars situated on either side of the plaza.
The most imposing feature of the plaza is the very large memorial commemorating Portugal’s independence from Spain which is situated in the middle of the plaza. Like many of Lisbon’s square the pavement of the plaza features a large wave pattern of small ceramic tiles.
Whilst this is a quite pleasant city plaza there are others in the city which have a nicer ambiance and which are a bit quieter and more peaceful!

Beautiful square that is filled with hotels and shops. Very busy area that is flanked by this wonderful statue. It’s an impressive monument and area. The Rossi metro stop is located right in the square and convenient for travel. A must see

As you walk towards the water from the Avenida da Liberdade you come to a big square with an obelisk. The square also has the signature patterned tiles that Lisbon is famous for. There are shops, restaurants... Nearby is the Hard Rock Cafe, the Ascensor da Gloria (one of the funiculars). Very fun to walk around. This is one of the metro stops too.
