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.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake

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.
