A little hidden gem in the neighborhood❣️. We walked by it few times and there is always a wait. They also take reservation too. Finally got lucky yesterday for our late lunch at 2:30 pm. It was worth the wait. It's just a comfortable space with homemade food❣️. Everything was fresh tasting and tasty; we had cod and stuffed calamari,... More

The highlight of this quirky, authentic little Lisbon restaurant is the very nice service from the friendly multilingual maitr d'. A novel Portuguese craft beer for me and a fruity glass of white for her got us off to a good start, and a plate of Portugese cheese and bread was also good. But both our fish dishes were a... More

We actually chose this place because of the reviews on Trip Advisor & were not dissappointed. Its right next to Sao Jorge Castle. Its a very small restaurant with only 12 seats so you either have to book in advance or be very lucky if you just turn up, which we were! I ordered the pork with prunes & it... More

We came to this place for dinner due to good Trip Advisor reviews and it being close to our hotel. As we had not booked, we had to wait for a table for a few minutes (so book ahead if you'd not happy to wait). We had a great meal, good was well cooked and full of flavor. The service... More

I'm not sure how this little restaurant seems like a hidden undiscovered gem. It is literally steps from the Castle. The waiter was very friendly and helped us with the menu which is only in Portuguese. Delicious and reasonable food!

Revisited this small restaurant, which specialises in fish dishes, twice on a recent visit to Lisbon. The staff were friendly and informative. The food was well presented and tasty.

We were staying just around the corner, popped in for a beer on our way home. Very personable waiter advised that they were a restaurant rather than a bar. Booked for dinner the same night. Wonderful local Portuguese fare, mostly seafood. First visit wonderful Hake on a bed of spinach with baby spuds and salads, himself had the salmon, and... More

Make a reservation! The restaurant is rather small so chances that you'll have to dine elsewhere are significant. This livingroom sized restaurants serves fine portugese food with a smile and a professional friendliness. Although potential guests were queueing at the frontdoor we did at no time feel pressed to limit the duration of our stay. I specifically remember the entree... More

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.
