My mum and I had been before for a drink, but we decided to have lunch here this time overlooking the city. For the view alone go! My mum had an amazing tomato salad, my black spaghetti and shrimp was tasty. Lovely green wine. I had great pleasure sharing my shrimp with a delightful little cat which enjoyed being petted too. I have had better food in Lisbon, but with the view the experience was lovely.

Some combination of bread, olives, fish paste, cheese and so forth are generally ALWAYS, automatically, placed on the table at The Casa do Leao (AND EVERYWHERE ELSE IN PORTUGAL) as soon as you sit down and BEFORE the menu arrives!! (Their price is generally noted somewhere on the menu, and if you are really interested in the additional charge which you WILL be charged for the "amuse bouche" you have just eaten and unknowingly "ordered", you must hunt for this on the menu). IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO PAY for these, DO NOT EAT them, but , rather, gently push them to the side of the table and IGNORE THEM and they will, in due course, be removed ( sometimes accompanied by a sullen look from the waiter, other times not). If you eat them, a charge for these will be placed on your bill.

There is no such thing as "a free lunch" in Portugal, nor, generally, is there a free "couvert".

The restaurant is gorgeous inside, and has a magnificent view of Lisbon. But the duck was completely Inedible. We ate in a group that included a local restaurateur in Lisbon, and it was embarrassing to have him served the "meal" that we had at Casa do Leao. There are PLENTY of good, reasonably priced restaurants in Lisbon. If you want a view, visit the Castle. But if you want dinner, eat elsewhere.

A rather posh restaurant inside the old castle, with a breathtaking view of the city (time your visit to watch the sunset). Good food and attentive service, and just 40 euros for a two-course dinner, plus a small entrée offered by the house - wine included. I had "cherne grelhado", grilled grouper, it was outstanding.
