“For locals and tourists alike”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

There is something about Chiado that makes it so charming and inviting at any time of the day. It may get a little crowded, especially during December or summer holidays, but it still worth a visit (and not a short one). Despite all the tourists, there are good choices of restaurants and cafes that are not traps, unlike the Rossio/Baixa area which is filled with the infamous "tourist traps". Just make sure you check reviews before going. Locals can be seen hanging in the neighborhood too.
Overall, as far as what it has to offer, it is a great area to explore and it will probably leave you wanting to go back again and again.
Tips: don't miss out on Gelado Santini (it's worth it even if there's a line, which is common during summer) and for dining try Sacramento, which also has a good lunch buffet.

“A shopping and eating district”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Worth visiting on your way through to Barrio Alto. However, as an area in its own right....it's worth an hour or two.

“Shopping Lisbon Style”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Bustling shopping area mixed with residential neighborhood. A great place to see and be seen. No bargains but plenty of beautiful side streets, cafés, and tiny shops.
