This restaurant must have some very good agreements with the hotels nearby, but avoid it at all cost. The food is of low quality, the atmosphere is lousy and the service is even worse. The price is too high for (any) quality.

Lots to eat, but very quirky - the place was filled with nic nacs. The servers were very attentive, and we enjoyed the experience, but not sure we would go again, as the menu was very local portuguese and we woudn't know what to order.

had traditional meal in this restaurant on our first night in Lisbon. While it was very nice and the owners and staff were very welcoming and friendly, I felt the food was a little overpriced for what we had, and was quite dried out. business seemed to be very quiet. I would have expected a better buzz on a Friday night. However, the friendliness of the staff made up for what was lacking in the food quality. Not sure if I would go back again but would recommend it as worth trying.

Was having lunch at the Grand’Elias and curiosity led me to check the reviews. Big surprise: either the restaurant improved tremendously from the older reviews or the reviewers were making a confusion with another restaurant down the street with a similar name.
It’s a typical restaurant with lots of nice memorabilia in the walls – check the collection of coffee cups and the wall clocks. They have a separate room for smokers and two smaller rooms for groups. Service is fast and very, very friendly. In the daily menu you have a choice of around 10 dishes and none costs more than 10 euro. Food is excellent, had the “creme de marisco” and the “filetes de peixe galo com arroz de coentros” (sorry, too dificult to translate), two typical dishes which were prepared to perfection with the added bonus that the fish dish is difficult to find in most restaurants. The several times I went to this restaurants were always at lunch time, let’s hope they keep the same quality at dinner or I will look bad as a reviewer

This is a traditional portuguese restaurant serving lots of typical portuguese dishes. The food is very good and well served; the prices are pretty acceptable. The restaurant has some little private rooms for groups up to 10 or 15 people.
I live in Lisbon and I have been in a lot of restaurants usually serving dinners for groups and this is one of the best for this.
