Food was super simple, but done well. Expected more from the house dessert (condensed milk with cookie crumble - was mostly cream) but apparently it's impossible to find so were happy. Great vibe!

They have a small menu, but to me it was a quality menu. They also have an excellent wine list. The owners are very friendly and the... More

We had been recommended to eat at Faca & Garfo by a local tour guide who said he and his family ate there a few times a month. Since it was in fact only 5 minutes from where we were staying with thought we'd just drop in. Good thing it was early, because with in 10 minutes it was full... More

We fell on this restaurant after visiting one of the famous churches in Lisbon and having a drink in a square just near the restaurant. There is seating outside but we chose to sit inside.

Not recommending the place. The food took an hour to get to the table and was not what I was supposed to get. Service way below average.

We visited this place based on reviews. We were not disappointed. The menu offered unique preparation of some Portugese favourites. Our server was gracious as we entered and went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed our meal. My son had the salmon and said it was the best he's ever had.

Thank Richelle C

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. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example.
