I have been here a number of times and brought various groups. On this occasion the service was appalling and the food was terrible. It’s become overpriced too. I won’t be back!

Lovely cafe set in the colonnades of the square. A lot of history and a fabulous dining room are features of this cafe. I had breakfast of coffee and a sandwich.

We had a delicious lunch at this restaurant starting with fresh grilled sardines as an appetizer and finishing with pastel de nata and coffee. We shared a sea bass with potatoes and salad. Everything was well prepared and the service was excellent. Good location too.

When in Lisbon you have to at least visit this place once. The bar is really special and has a nice atmosphere.

earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
