We reserved in person the day before for a large party of 2 families (4 adults with 5 children), specifically asking the waiter for a table outside on the porch, and when there for dinner they did not have available tables outside, saying we talked to a different employee not there at the moment and they had no notice of...

It is already tough to get a table at dinner, at least during the summer...but in all fairness, I understand why. It's a lovely spot, with a nice dining area indoors and an arbor-shaded patio for outdoor dining. The food - from the covers to dessert - was beautifully presented and delicious. Even more impressive, the wait staff - all... More

Food is mediocre, at best; french fries are better at McDonalds. Waiting time is long. But the worst is still to come: the quality to price ratio is very, very LOW. Do not come here.

This is a small restaurant in the Alfama with a terrace (and an inside dining room.) Hard to find but worth the climb. Friendly staff and wonderful grilled fish.

Quaint, charming, tucked-away restaurant with surprisingly good food. Very satisfying experience. Recommended.

From the street it looks nice because of the shade - don't let it fool you. The waiters are grumpy, food overpriced and just awful. We had two different salads (Amalia's and Sophia) and couldn't decide which one was worse. We've been in Lisabon a couple of days and we've had great food experiences until this one. Don't go, you'll... More

I stumbled across this place while hungry, knowing nothing about it, but its setting under the grape arbor was so charming, and its interior so appealing, like its menu -- that I sat down for dinner. It was lovely. Very good service and very good food in a lovely ambiance. I was served bread, olives, and yummy fried potato skins.... More

The restaurant was pretty busy, so we thought we’d give it a whirl, I ordered cod and my wife ordered the Portuguese steak. Our food arrived within 5 minutes of being ordered, my cod was dry to the point of being inedible, and my wife’s steak was a non - descript colour that could have come from any animal. I... More

My husband chose this restaurant from reviews he had found here on Trip Advisor and also because it was located in our guide book. It took a bit of searching to find it on foot (as we walked everywhere in Lisbon), but the meal was so worth it! On the day we chose to go, there was a street festival... More

We chose to visit this wonderful restaurant because it was close to the Amalfa viewpoint and is listed in Baediker (the German travel guide to Lisbon). We were lucky and arrived early and got a table in the courtyard – by the time we left all the courtyard tables and all those inside were occupied by happy diners. Three of... More

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighborhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
