We had our final dinner at BarAlto, a nice little restaurant in the heart of Bairro Alto. At weekends you should reserve a table, but we went on a Thursday and got our table instantly.

The service started immediately and was very friendly in both Portuguese and English. The menu card offered a good range of meat, fish dishes and a great range of wines. I choosed some local cheese specialties as a starter and Tiger Prawns on Mango-risotto as main course. The food was served in a good time, it was warm and had a very good taste. Some Prawns were not 100% cleaned but that was a minor issue for me.

As we sat outside i can't say anything about the atmosphere inside the restaurant. If you reserve, I don't recommend to sit outside because there are only 2 tables straight beside the menu card at the entrance, so all interested guests look onto your meal while eating.

Pricing was OK, it was a bit more costly than at other restaurants mainly because of the location. Personally I thought my serving could be slightly bigger for the money. In total we spent 60 Euro for 2 persons incl. 1 starter for both, 2 main dishes and 3 glasses of wine plus water.

I think it's a good place to eat, the dishes are creative, it's easy to reach and you can have a good cocktail afterwards in the neighbour bars.

Small place that requires reservations. Each entree was delicious however it felt that the black linguine with scallops special was a smaller portion then expected.

My husband had the veal bone chop with potatoes. Felt like he was in surgery getting to the meat around the home.

We book for a large party of 8 at this little gem and when we added a 9th at the last minute they couldn't have been more accommodating despite being a small space.

The staff was helpful in both English and Portuguese for our party. The atmosphere is great, feels local and high quality in a quite touristy area of town.

Great variety in the menu, great quality food all magically appears from a tiny tiny kitchen!

Not even in the lisbon top one hundred, the place is nice, nothing more. We visited because is n3 in lisbon. Has wine bar is medium, as resraurant is poor. Bairro alto is a kind of touristic trap and this one of that places.
