I've been visiting Lisbon for 30 years and I have to say that this is the worst restaurant I can recall eating in while there. I ordered swordfish - got a thin slice of something very unappetising with some greasy vegetables: I guessed from the texture and lack of flavour the fish had been taken out of a packet and... More

I said it all in my title for this review. Lucky to have accidentally ending up in this eatery. Everything we ordered was amazing and reasonably price. Not a big selection of wine but we tried the one recommended by our server and it turned out to be great.

As this restaurant had a cozy little outdoor dining area within steps of our hotel we ended up eating here two evenings. The initial meal was quite good and our waiter was personable, attentive and the food arrived quickly and piping hot! We ordered a bottle of wine which came to our table corked, and he promptly replaced it with... More

Went here as it was quite close to our hotel and it looked fairly typically Portuguese. The tables are quite close together and the décor is fairly basic. The menu contains some traditional Portuguese dishes, I had the Bacalhau which was tasty. The service was OK and the prices pretty reasonable. I can't say it was the best meal we... More

We had one of the best grilled octopus there. They have all traditional meals. Good service. It was our first dinner in Portugal because it was close to the hotel and it looked like a good place to get wine, beer and some national food. It was. It wasn ´t kind of wanna comeback visit but everything was very ok.

This is a very nice place in Bairro Alto, Lisbon. They have a wide menu, with Brazilian and Portuguese food. Reasonable prices and Diogo was very attentive during our visit there. A great option for an outdoor lunch or a nice dinner. Highly recommended.

In Bairro Alto, most restaurants are touristy, even if they like locals and regulars! This is our "normal" choice, when out in a group and after doing it a few years, we know everyone and are always welcome as "part of the family". The food is good (try the "lombinhos de porco gratinados"... yummmy!!!) without being exceptional and the only... More
