We were walking through the neighborhood and got hungry-noticed very little English spoken so stopped in for some typical Portuguese dishes-we were not disappointed! Has a “mom and pop” feel, menu has pics so when our language skill failed, we could point. Gentleman very friendly...More

This restaurant is near the end of the route of the walking tour and is the perfect place to stop for lunch. Mom and Pop style; path-side setting. The grilled seafood was excellent and reasonable priced.

Never again. Horrible service and bad food. The waitress made fun of us when we asked for vegetarian food and not in a sarcastic funny way (we can laugh about ourselves as well), but in a rude way. She is running the place with her...More

If someone puts a plate with a little cheese and ham on your table, please note you will be charged 10 euros without being warned which is the price of a main course... This is just unbearable... I call it stealing. So I will forget...More

This place looked very topical and local. In fact the soup of the day was good and only 1,50 euro. But the service was very bad. They didn’t put enough glasses on the table. They put a piece if cheese with a couple of olives...More

When you've had enough tapas and want a simple meal in a little neighbourhood restaurant, this place fits the bill. Excellent pork chops, steak with home made chips and rice was solid and reliable. Please don't expect multi lingual menus...it's the hand-written food of the...More

We decided to give this mom assuming cantinho a try, as it was meters away. Not deceived at all. Family run and very relax. Dinner was sword fish, sardines, and cod croquettes. All delish!

Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.
Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a
spectacular option for those looking for a more
