I went to Sinal Vermelho based on my hotel's recommendation. Certainly the best part of the experience was the wait staff. They were incredibly friendly and very attentive. They spoke superb English and couldn't have been more eager to assist.
I had the sardine appetizer which was really fantastic. My issue was with the main course which was too salty. I ordered a pork and clam dish hoping to have something truly typical of Portugal. It was so salty I really couldn't enjoy it. My waiter couldn't have been more apologetic and offered me free desert. While this was very kind on his behalf it wasn't going to bring back what I was hoping to be a nice dinner.
Be warned the tables outside are very, very close together. For half my meal I sat next to an incredibly annoying couple. Good luck to the guy that was with that girl!
There are too many restaurants in Lisbon for me to go back. Not an awful experience but I wouldn't go back.
