This was a really fun place. You are elbow to elbow with policemen, painters, shopkeepers and all the other neighborhood workers that come here for lunch. For under 16 Euro both of us ate a feast, including 1 liter of wine, 2 entrees, 2 desserts...and 2 coffees. My husband got steak covered with fries. I got the more traditional meal with veal, pork shoulder, 3 kinds of sausage and a pile of cabbage, turnips, carrots, rice and potatoes that was literally enough for three people. It was unbelievable. My eyes about popped out of my head when I saw what was in front of me. The best part was hanging with the locals, though. What a fun lunch. Get there early, though. We arrived a couple minutes before noon and got right in, but within 15 minutes the entire restaurant was packed with a line was waiting out the door. They are not open for dinner- but you may not need dinner if you eat here for lunch!More

Big portions of Portuguese traditional dishes which are honored by local people. Grease is not spared and the salad should normally be ordered separately. The menu is in Portuguese, the waiters are friendly but not so fluent in English. "Completo" comprises the soup, bread, the...main dish (6...7 alternatives), a can of house wine of sufficient size or draft beer, a dessert (several alternatives; sugar not spared) and coffee, all for the package price of 7.5 €. The place is so favored that be prepared to stand in a queue between 12...13:30. - My latest choice was soup Caldo Verde, the rabbit risotto (the portion would have been sufficient for two), a thick slice of nut pie and an espresso. Like normal in Portugal, when eating meat, mind particles of bone.More

Don't expect an English menu or anything posh, but otherwise it's really enjoyable - so much so that we ate here 3 times in 3 days. Only open for lunch and nearly always packed with local workers; you may have to wait a few minutes...to be seated by one of the staff, but they keep things turning over steadily so you'll soon be seated. You'll be amongst 60 or so locals; close packed, so a good chance to make friends. 5 staff work really hard to serve the hoard very efficiently. The menu has about 5 meat and 5 fish main courses to choose from. All are hearty, traditional Portuguese dishes. A good soup, the generous main course, dessert, bread coffee and wine (the house red is very passable). All this for 7.50 - brilliant!More

If you want local experience, this is the place! Home cooked food like my grandmother made. At noon it is packed with locals filling up on large portions at a very low price of $7.50 which includes entree, drink (even wine or beer) desert and...cafe. It's crazy, busy and noisy with delicious aromas filling the air. The staff is friendly and very helpful (thank you Fernando). I highly recommend a visit to truly feel that you have dined in Portugal like a local and not a tourist.More

Not a touristic place. The meal itself is rather like my grandma's cooking, and there are only a few dishes we could choose among. The portions are huuuuge (the small portion is highly recommended ;) ), and it's incredibly cheap: we got a 3-course lunch...with coffee for 7.5 €. All in all, I recommend it to visit.More

If You want to dive in local atmosphere this is the place. A very friendly location with nice service personnel. Simple food with big portions. You get a lot to eat for the price. I recommend for those who are not in search of a...fancy place but a place where locals eat and can be sometimes a little bit noisy.More

I was blown away by this gem of a place. It had a really buzzy atmosphere and seemed to be packed full of locals. My meal was sensational- for 7.5 Euros I had soup, fish (one of the nicest I've ever eaten), dessert, coffee and...around half a litre of vinho verde! Everything served promptly, no upsell, a good range of dishes for the mains and dessert. I can't recommend it enough and can't wait to go back!More

We had a complete menu for € 12,50 each. Soup, which was nice, main, which was decent, dessert, which we skipped, so can't tell and a coffee which was okay. Simple place, run by a family I think. Food is okay. Would recommend it for...people with a low budget.More

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
