Hotel Britania (see separate review) recommended this eatery two doors up from it. We had the best tapas. Everything was fresh and prepared to perfection. We took three Portuguese friends there (they live 1.5 hours from Lisboa and had driven up) and shared about 10...More

A wide range of menu options from the cheap thru to very expensive meat dishes. The average fare is well priced for the quality you get. Attentive staff. House wine is good for the price. They have a smoking and non-smoking section inside, and an...More

Go here! Proper Portuguese tapas and waiters with a lovely feel and outstanding value. The house Crianza was excellent for Euro 15! And the food very tasty.

Our hotel staff recommended Rubro for our first dinner in Lisbon. We were quite tired from traveling and Rubro is just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Two couples shared the house speciality- chuleton de buey (steak) and we loved it! The meat was...More
