One of my favorite things to do while wandering is eating new foods. However, there comes a time (at least for me), when I want a taste of what is familiar, loved, and filling. While in Portugal, one can only eat so much salmon, cod, sandes, or pasteis de nata (those delicious caramelized cream pastries that are everywhere). Well, perhaps I can eat endless amounts of pastries, but I digress...

Enter Aprazivel. We stumbled across this restaurant while walking along in a desperate search for... A restaurant that seemed appealing at that particular time. Situated in a beautiful courtyard tucked away from the main street, this place had a relaxing and easy feel that led to a meal lasting several hours.

Menu in English? Very helpful. Pleasant servers? Check! A variety of Portuguese dishes that were not fish and could pass as a similar American dish? Yes! Hamburgers- excellent. Pasta- looked good at other tables and tasted good at ours. Goat cheese au gratin salad? Tasty and satisfying (minus the icky rind that I could have done without). Pregos (which is a garlicky steak sandwhich) was very tasty, but the meat was fairly thin and the sandwich would have benefited from a few grilled onions). A small cup of fries was served up as well.

Chocolate, banana, and vanilla shake?! Yes please. However, I was in for a surprise when my first gulp was not chilling, but instead warm. Are warm shakes a "thing" in Portugal?

Do yourself a favor and visit this place for a good meal that has a familiar feel. And while you are at it, walk up the street to Amorino's to treat yourself to some INCREDIBLE gelato for dessert. I suggest the caramel, pistachio, coffee, or tiramisu flavors. But I will save that for a different review!

Simple yet well executed dishes (Italian, burgers, steaks, sandwiches, risottos, etc.) with a bit of local flair, great place to grab lunch or dinner while in the area, even worth making your way here just to eat. Fantastic service and everything was affordable. Would go back again!

The restaurant is situated in a nice courtyard in the busy shopping district, nice terraces outside. Food is ok, we ate with a family of four, 2 children ages 16 & 14. Portions not to big, tastefull and relaxed. As basically all restaurants in Lisbon very affordeable ; value for money let's say. Overall a good choice for a relaxed family dinner with two teenagers, after long walks. Very friendly and accomodating service !

What a lovely place set in a courtyard. Chic and modern I would recommend it to anyone. Very much enjoyed the food. There was a lot of construction noise but that will be gone by the time you get here.. Ciao
