Very traditional classic Restaurant in the center of Lisbon. Prices are really high, but you will have one the best service teams you can find in Lisbon. The food is traditional Portuguese, but on good and high level. I know it since around 10 years and go there once a month. Its perfect for a business dinner, but also for... More

Perfect harmony between tradition and quality to delight the most demanding, with friendly and super professional service. The "iscas" are a reference that delights me, as we'll as lots of dishes that are in the menu, granting privilege and dignifying the products of the Portuguese coast and its traditional cuisine. Ending with an artistic and excellent crepe Suzette and a... More

As with some of the nicest Restaurants in Lisbon, Gambrinus looks very unassuming on the outside, inside is a very elegant and well appointed restaurant. Service is really top notch, wine list is extensive and well stocked. My wife and I had the Salmon and a cut of beef, they were really good both, bread was to die for, the... More

Classic Portuguese fine dining, very good food, excellent service. A very traditional restaurant, probably too old fashioned for some, but a pleasant change from near-ubiquitous modernism in fine dining.

Great meal in a fine restaurant. Wait staff extremely well mannered, very eager to please. We were probably slightly under-dressed as the local clientele were among lisbon's finest. Very much like an Italian pinoteca, the dishes were of the finest and freshest ingredients (fish and seafood especially) fabulously prepared and beautifully presented. Really the best meal we had in Portugal.... More

Well supposedly an institution which I get, but I feel a little out of date. Silver service and a lot of theatre especially with the crepe suzette but couldn't help but feel we were in the 1980s regarding decor and service. My meal of the seafood and rice wasn't especially tasty although my partner had the pork which was lovely.... More

We arrived late to the restaurant, the service was extremely good and the food was delicious! The waiters are very kind and helpful and all of them spoke Portuguese, French and English. I highly recommend this chic place if you are visiting Lisbon.

Gambrinus was recommended by a business colleague. It is a professional restaurant staffed it seems entirely by men! The service and menu are competent with that weary done it before a million times feel. My dish of the day, pork and rice was nice but my wife's seafood and rice had no flavour. Watching the crepe suzette performance was actually... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighborhood Profile
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 Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
