The tuna steak is fantastic! The service is very good, and the owners are very nice. We've been there in 2015 and we came back twice this year. We'll definitely eat here again our next time in Lisbon.

We went to a small place called Faca & Garfo. To find it, we had looked in all of our travel guides to see if any of them had mentioned Bonjardim, which had been our favorite restaurant so far that week. Only the Lonely Planet guide mentioned it, and so we used that guide to find us a restaurant in... More

Not a representative place of the food in Portugal. Cold cod ,cold rice ,pre heated sausages. Expensive wine an a tricky tapa that they placed at the table much more expensive than the main course. Worst restaurant i have ever visited in my life.

The place was nice and quiet and I liked the meal (grilled tuna). Also the dessert was good enough. The bad point is the price: I paid almost 5€ for a glass of the house wine and 5€ for a cheese that they "offered" us (we did not ask for it). It has been unpleasant.

Excellent food, wide range ofchoices including fish and vegetarian dishes, good wines and delightful service. Reasonable prices - that's why we returned to this restaurant. And the tiramisu was mouthwatering!

Had a wonderful dinner here and the staff are really friendly and professional. Beautiful high quality food at reasonable prices. Had fresh tuna which was superb! We will hopefully be back again in the not too distant future. Advisable to book at weekends. Highly recommended.

At first we were not convinced, mainly because of the menu in many languages, a sign that generally means the place is a tourist trap. But we were mistaken. The food is excellent and the crowd is local, we do recommend it!

I was looking for a not-for-tourist restaurant in the Barrio Alto. This is a quiet place, basic furniture and very warm personnel. We wanted to have fish for dinner. The tuna was great as well as the cod fish (the famous bacalao) and the anchovies. The apple with cinnamon was absolutely outstanding. I'll come back again very soon! Obrigado!!!

Thank DOMilmegliodiTRIP

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to.
