Read reviews online and then discovered Afonso was across the street from our hotel! Loved the chow & the friendly chat. Met some local people who gave us touristy tips!

The food was good and super cheap. This place is currently mostly used by the locals for lunch so it is only €2 for the burger.

This is honestly one of the most authentic eateries you could visit in Lisbon. It is small, it is absolutely delicious (you do not need more than the bun and the meat, maybe some mustard) and it seems like it is full of locals. Absolutely...unbeatable! The next time I visit Lisbon I will definitely be back!More

This is a place that locals visit - you will be standing next to builders, tuk tuk drivers and office workers. We were taken here by Secret Tours of Lisbon and tried the bifana. Haven't tried any others but this was fabulous. Soft pork gently...cooked for a short time in a bath of wine, garlic and herbs then popped into an artisan warm bap - what's not to like. A small beer is a perfect accompaniment. Wish we had tried some of the other food. Its clean and popular and we learnt from this to definitely eat where the locals do.More

The best bifana I've had by a country mile, can't wait to go back. Plus at 2 Euros, incredible value. This place is tiny so you will have to queue at busy times, but they keep things moving and the wait is worth it. This...place is between the two free elevators on the way up to the castle, so it is very easy to stop there for a snack. My bifana was tender and full of flavour, even the roll was perfect. I was a bit over-generous with the chili sauce- it was hotter than Portuguese food normally is! Packed full of locals and lots of nice things to try at a really fair price.More

Very typical and class free place to enjoy simple and super tasty Portuguese typical food. We enjoyed this place twice and I would like to come back next time in Lisboa

Nothing but a hole in the wall with a stool or two and a counter to stand at. But absolutely awesome food, freshly prepared and delicious! Suggest you try the bifana, which is made with freshly pork that is simmered in a rich broth, loaded...onto a fresh Portuguese roll. Try it with a squeeze of mustard and a few drops of hot chili oil! Fantastic. I came back for more a few times! Easy to find if you are going up the Elevador from downtown to walk to the castle. Just across the street from the entrance/exit to the public elevator. Delicious espresso also available, as is draft beer and soft drinks. Authentic local food, and very inexpensive!More

Title says it all. We are glas that we randomly went there for a quick snack and were surprised by how good it was. Also cheap and authentic. Perfect:)

We wanted to eat a traditional Portuguese dish, and Afonso offered us a bifana. It was a great pork sandwich.

I usually don't eat pork meat, but this sure was one tasty pork sandwich. Great pork meat, tasy bread. Yes, I'll sure revisit next time when I'm around.

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
