We had breakfast here and it was not a good experience. The food was cold when it arrived, the fried eggs and the bread were very dry. The staff was arguing loudly with each other, and we were overcharged even though we pointed out the...More

We did not eat here but bought pastries to go multiple times and were impressed by the quality and value. Basically, this is more of a neighborhood place than a tourist place.

We stopped here for some cod cakes...really they were awful, but we were told by the waiter they were not that great. So we ordered the natas and...loved them! We ordered more to take away. Waiter was very helpful with us getting the free wifi.

Not a good place at all. Bland food, slow service, and a very touristy vibe. Thought this would be quick but it wasn’t at all. The only good things were the port wine and the Pasteis de Nata.

Stopped for brunch on 16/05/18 around 11.00 hrs with my husband. There was one particular server there that was particularly rude. She only seemed interested in getting passing customers to stop. Tried to get her attention on a couple of occasions and she seemed oblivious....More

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
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
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
