Been there several times and this year I celebrated my 30th birthday with over 30 guests there. The whole organisation of the event went smoothly. The staff was very professional and incredibly charming and helpful. The food is typical Portuguese and very yummy. Absolutely worth...a visit when in Lisboa.More

This niche little restaurant was an amazing find on Valentine's night. Having just arrived in Lisbon and not having booked anywhere on such a romantic evening. The waiter staff was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble he was attentive without being in our face. We...both had the sirloin steak with sweet potato. Cooked to absolute perfection. The request for an ice jacket for our red wine (yes I know, but I do like my red wine chilled) was met without batting an eyelid. As was the request to keep the cork from the wine - perfect for my scrapbook. Dessert was amazing. Brownie and Apple crumble - couldn't find fault with either of these. Heaven on a plate. We are here for 6 more nights - we will definitely be back. Thank you.More

Great food, great service at a restaurant hidden away at a little square. We mostly ate fish and all dishes were amazing, so were the wines. One small notice: whatever comes on your table, you will be charged for. They may bring cheese, olives and...bread as a starter out of nowhere that you might expect to be complimentary- be aware, it's not. All in all, very pleasant place, thank you for the experience.More

Stopped at this cafe/restaurant for tapas on our first night. Prawns with chilli & garlic were incredible. Also had bread with fantastic goat’s cheese. Went back last night for dorada; excellent. I’d recommend a visit if you’re in the area 👍🏻

Average food and bad service. Although the restaurant was empty, we waited 15 mn to be served. Pancakes were basic and cold. Not interesting. Sandwich had no flavor and missed seasoning. The service was poor and when I asked for a tax receipt, the server...was rude. Will not come back.More

They have every pastry that represents Portugal and is located just under the famous elevator. Always very busy and no wonder why because it's really good.

The food was absolutely delicious, great local breakfast with pastries and sweets from the region. The price is worth it!

The food was good, not amazing. I liked the prawn pasta. Good place to go if you're nearby and hungry. Service was fine, nothing special. The restaurant was pretty busy when we were there, seemed popular.

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
