“Great ambience and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled on this place after another restaurant was closed and this was the best place we visited. Great venue, staff were friendly and the food tasty. I'd recommend the swordfish

Despite central location in Bairro Alto this football memorabilia crazy tiled restaurant is perfect for local food and wine. Visit and enjoy!

“Unmissable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Going to Lisbon and not visiting the Adega is not an option. This is a truly typical traditional restaurant, and although it's popularity with tourists may have brought many foreigners, just come here a bit later during the week (the Portuguese do not have lunch at noon) and order whatever the people who speak the language are ordering. If you ask me, go for the bacalhau grelhado. It comes with potatoes, onions and garlic, with a very generous serving of olive oil. To drink, vinho verde of course, but make sure you don't order a bottle and have it from the tap instead.

“Excellent arroz con mariscos”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

The Adega has a warm local feel - on a Sunday afternoon it was an even mix of locals and tourists. The gents doing the service are pros who crack the odd dry joke. The vinho verde won't set the world on fire but at 8.50 a bottle who's to complain? We shared seafood rice for two and it was generously fleshed out with clams, crab, mussels, and two types of prawns; lots of flavour and a charming rustic presentation. It is perfectly situated for a visit to the Igreja de Sao Roque, almost next door, and I would very much enjoy eating there again.

“Still my favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

After many years of regular visits to Lisboa, this restaurants remains on the top list of my favorites for its excellent fresh meals of grilled fishes, typical and tasteful.
Do not miss the list of sobremesa (dessert) that you can pick and choose from the kitchen fridge - I recommend the Toucinho do Ceu or the Molotov, one of the best served in Lisboa....

Typical also means that you need to get used to the "futebol" decoration - this is not the most romantic but the overall atmosphere is worth the experience!
