Clara's was something we found on the web before travelling and was also a recommendation from our hotel. It is very small, only six double tables but the food is terrific. It is mainly a fish restaurant when it comes to main courses but you will find one or two meat options. Service was very good and very friendly. The... More

Very tasty chicken with honey and orange served with potato and mushrooms but salmon in Port served with veg from a frozen mix! Service was patchy with waiter who was forgetful and seemed distracted. Bill for 2 white port aperitif, starters, mains, desserts and bottle of wine €77. Tables are very close together in the tiny restaurant and lighting quite... More

We had a beer here before we started our walking tour of the area The cafe is tiny but super convenient. They have some very unique and well priced jewelry and other unique gifts items. My husband bought me a lovely necklace and matching earrings for only 32€. The items are a wonderful reminder of my time in Lisbon The... More

Called in here at 9pm on a Tuesday evening, for a drink and meal. There were six people at the tables inside, but were stopped at the doorway and told we couldn't go in as they were closing! Why? Not happy, but maybe would have been disappointing as the interior looked like having a meal in your gran's dining room... More

Lovely, quirky little restaurant. The food was fantastic (I had tuna and my partner had the bacalhau, both delicious) and it was a delight to be served by such a charming, knowledgeable maître de. It's very small (6 tables for two) so make a reservation if you can. Great setting next to the castle. Hope to return and would highly... More

You need to book in advance. Small, very pleasant space. Books to read; jewellery on sale. Personable service. Interesting Portugese wines on offer. Fish dishes predominate. Fantastic for a relaxed holiday dinner.

The Lonely planet guide recommend this small restaurant as number one in the Alfama district - I completely agree. Having stumbled across it by accident we realised that it was rated as a good restaurant so we waited until seated as there were only 12 tables and most days it is booked up. I recommend that if anyone does go... More

My boyfriend and I were on a transfer flight to London and had a few hours to kill in Lisbon. We googled a central Metro stop and when we got there we googled restaurants nearby, at which point this restaurant came up with some good reviews and a note saying it was good for lunch. It was one of the... More

Brilliant little restaurant with excellent food and multi-lingual staff. Superb meat and fish dishes for around 10 euros. Wine is excellent too. Highly recommended but you will need to book in advance most nights as there are only about 12 tables.

Thank psfcp

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighborhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
