We liked this place alot! First the location is in a very nice street full of pubs and restaurants. They have amazing food and awesome staff! It's a very good value for money. The place is very nicely decorated.

In a former canteen for LX factory workers is this nice restaurant in retro industrial style. For a late lunch we had a nice meal: sweet tomatoes, salad, rice and stew.

I can appreciate why some reviewers are unhappy. When we went, (Tuesday lunchtime) there wasn't enough serving staff, their exasperation was evident and could have made for a disappointing meal - however, it didn't. The building is one great old shed, everything looks old and grubby but is really quite clean and makes for a real authentic atmosphere. The menu... More

Hundred of times to wait for one beer or sangria, 30 min. until the food arrived and the worst part was the behaviour of the employees. This place dont deserve your money. There is thousand of better places (which is not difficul) in Lisbon.

This place looks amazing! Unfortunately I found the staff really cold and tbh not friendly at all as mentioned before. When I went in I was told they had stopped serving food but I could have a drink. That was okay and I went somewhere else to eat. I decided to go back for a drink around 45 mins later... More

I believe that Cantina Lx is now under a new name called Da Praça. My wife and I went to Da Praça twice and was very pleased with their menu and food. From Portuguese faire, seafood and new versions of hamburgers. You can get appetizer's and drinks before 7:30 pm before the kitchen opens. Trendy music and fun place to... More

Only a few dishes on the menu creates an expectation of fresh and excellent. Unfortunately..... The piece of fish I had was overcooked and poorly prepared. Patatoes were for sure not the best (kind of bitter tasting). My wife had a bowl of dry tice with her veggy burger. The staff was friendly.

It feels very authentic and has a great rustic and eclectic style. You can help yourself to salad and then order from the very basic fare menu. The food was delicious and the staff very nice. Sitting outside is lovely when weather allows - which is quite often in Lisbon!

This is not a typical tourist hang out. We loved this restaurant. We visited on a weeknight and it was buzzing with young locals..... a thirty something crowd. A great, funky decor and very friendly staff. The food was excellent. A local friend suggested that we have the octopus and the pork cheeks, so we did. DELICIOUS!!! We're going back... More

The food was tasty, the ambiance very nice, the location also good in the heart of the artist colony. The service was very slow, took us more than half hour to get our food, but otherwise an OK experience.
