This is truly genuinely a deserving No 1. It's what eating should be all about - the food and the ambience of enjoying food with other people. It is a small place, very nice and cosy - like going into a friend's house rather than an elaborate restaurant, and you are there to share the experience with the cooks and... More

Probably the best dining experience I have ever had and I am sad it will only happen that once! It's a small 9 seat bar-style restaurant. A very intimate experience with remarkable service and extraordinary food. It opens at 7PM, so I recommend going to wait outside at 630PM if you want a spot. I will forever be grateful I... More

Special restaurant experience, 9 seats only. The owner entertains you from start to finish, go with the flow and his recommendations, we had very good grilled fish and best tomato salad ever (incredibly tasty). Keep some room for the dessert, unique!

Delicious eating experience provided by proprietors. Served beautifully with exceptionally well cooked food and carefully chosen wines. If only they're was a place like this at home, I'd be a regular visitor!

Typical Portuguese botequim food and awesome welcoming service by the owner. They have a nice wine selection. The price is a bit dear though.

We had a great experience. Lovely regional food cooked beautifully, superb wine selected by Chef,good company- the high table that everyone sits at means you meet and talk to other guests, the melted cheese entree with rosemary was to die for, welcoming owners.We were lucky to get in so best to book day before if you can. Only sits around... More

I had a brilliant dining experience with superb food. Cant recommend this place highly enough. Both he and his wife clearly love high quality food and entertaining guests. I travelled alone but I wouldnt let this put you off, the place lends to conversation with both hosts and fellow diners! As other have said, arrive early as this is not... More

Sit at the bar and let the owner, a warm and excellent host, guide you towards his best dishes. The mix of flavors and aromas is unbeatable. The wine was great and the food was absolutely incredible.

Plenty has been said about the delicious food at Botequim da Mouraria. Couldn't agree more. The ambiance is cozy (if you are averse to talking to your neighbors, this might not be the place for you), the ingredients are high quality, and the cooking is simple in a way that brings out the best of the dish. The owner is... More

A lovely place, great food and an unforgettable 4-hours talking with Domingos, the owner. But be prepared, as they only have place for 9 people, don't accept reservations and open at 7 pm for dinner. We arrived at 6h15 and I stuck at the door like a football quarterback. In 10 minutes we were 8 people standing there. At 7... More
