EXCELLENT, will omit many details, would simply be repeating what others have said. For my wife and me the location was ideal. Quiet yet not far from sights and sites, all easily reached by tram and bus. We used stored-value transit cards provided by our hosts, topping-up daily as needed. Our preference for evening meals is inexpensive relatively light food, more often fish than meat. Francisco and Catarina have an excellent suggestion, very near: "O Lavrador", Euro 20 - 30 for 2 including house wine. Just as near and also excellent, in our experience, is "Flor da Estrela" at Rua de Joao de Deus, 11, just opposite Basilica Estrela -- smaller and slightly more elegant atmosphere but food and prices comparable. For serious eaters, foodie Francisco has many suggestions, some nearby, and other guests said his suggestions were excellent. But we enjoyed the more modest "Restaurante Madragoa" at Rua da Esperanca, 134. There one is served by Antonio while his wife Christina cooks. Roughly Euro 30 - 45 for 2 including wine. "Madragoa" is located downhill from The House in an interesting area bounded by the route of Tram 25E and Avenida D. Carlos I. Part of the route of Tram 25E follows Rua Buenos Aires, on which street at 25-A and 30-A is pastelaria "Cristal", recommended by Francisco. Very good! And in Belem, where a queue of many dozens waits outside the guidebook-recommended pastelaria (whose name we don't have) on Rua de Belem, there is an excellent nearby alternative pastelaria "A Chique de Belem" at R. da Junqueira, 524, opposite the Tram 15E stop just one before Mosteiro dos Jeronimos.
