We did not stay at the hotel, but we did eat dinner at the restaurant. It was wonderful! The space on the roof top is absolutely perfect, and provides beautiful views of the river. The service was spectacular! The waiter really made you feel important even though he was the only server, and he explained all the dishes and wines to us. The food, while not perfect, was very good. We enjoyed every dish, especially the first, which was a simple potato and onion based soup with cabbage and chorizo in it. It was soooo good, and done probably pretty close to as perfectly as it could be. If you can eat dinner here while in Lisbon, do it!

The higher part of Santa Catarina is one of the most beautiful places of Lisbon and only two steps away from the city buzz. With views over the river Tagus it is said that since the 17th Century this plateau, once known as Monte do Pico or Monte Belvedere, is famous because of its lookout point. According to legend throughout the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, from here one could see the moving ships: this is why still today there is a proverbial saying that is: “Ver navios no Alto de Santa Catarina” [“Watching the ships from the top of Santa Catarina”). Follow your instinct and we will be waiting…. ... more less
