Description: Restaurant Forest of Escadinhas is located in a former church in the street of Santa Justa. Located in the downtown historic district, serves as a passage for those who rises and falls to the Castelo de São Jorge. This restaurant is since 1993 to serve its customers its specialties of fish and meat on coal. In a simple and familiar environment has the capacity to 40 seats and serves traditional Portuguese food. Genuine flavors, our dishes are mainly of fresh fish and very healthy. We recommend that you try our mixed fish and meat. After a nice meal is invited to experience some of our fantastic homemade desserts, made to surprise him. The restaurant offers a very characteristic terrace in stairways and is the perfect place for a romantic meal for two or for lunch with friends. Best sardines in Lisbon. We have meat and fresh fish grilled in charcoal (Steak, ribs, fresh sausages, sardines, cod fish, grilled squid...)

“Local family restaurant with a heart”
Reviewed April 7, 2011

One of the nicest things about Lisbon is that there are very few tourist traps and this family restaurant is no exception. Although tucked away on the edge of the commercial district and the tourist old city it is very local and the family went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They even disturbed the 'son' from his homework to come and translate.
The food is standard Portuguese fare, but fresh with good portions. There was a plat du jour (pasta something) that the locals were eating, but we did not try.
Good value and pleasant experience.

Thank you for your nice comment and the time spent in the evaluation.
Your opinion prefeitamente describes what we are, a simple, small, family run restaurant. Will be welcome and will feel at home!
It has been a while since the first time he visited us, so we hope to see you next visit to our city.

Best regards

“Best sardines in Lison”
Reviewed August 17, 2009

If you want brilliant sardines (and other fish) in central Lisbon at amazing places go to Restaurante Floresta das Escadinhas in Rua de Santa Justa No.3[--]. It's in a tiny steep street as you walk down from th castle to the centre. Very small and very friendly - and great value - you'll get decent beer or a quarter pitcher of wine for next to nothing. Enjoy!
