“Lots of great bars and clubs”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Went here in the pouring rain and ducked into the first bar that we saw that had music on. It turned out to be a great bar with lots of friendly locals. Many of the other bars on the street were great too.

“Noisy and overrated”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Tiny bars, expensive drinks, smoke galore and rowdy people. Try it if you like being out and about in narrow, smelly and crowded streets

“Overestimated”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

OK, this part of the city has a special atmosphere, you can still taste here the depressive life of poor people of old Lisbon, but I think it's overestimated. For sure you have to make a walk aroud the small streets, but a lot of places around are made only for tourists. Reataurants are more expensive in comparison with other areas of Lisbon, but not of better quality.
