The best sardins in Lisbon! Deliciouse, served with salad and potatoes! Pleanty to eat! Have outside tables - much nicer than inside! Great, fast service. Friendly staff! Portions under 10 euros. On the boarder of the city center and downtown.

If there's 1 or 2 of you, stand at the counter and order a Bifana and a beer each. Then people watch... both the clientele and the staff. If you're a bigger group, get a table (but it's a little more expensive). Interesting railway scene...More

you like to enjoy the sea food you need the tools they provide you to eat the langoustines, lobster etc. It will be more comfortable to take your time and eat in the restaurant rather in a train.
