How good was this food? When we arrived at the restaurant I was tired, I was not hungry, and I had been having trouble with my stomach all day. But as the tapas started to arrive I came back to life. I devoured everything. So...More

Great tapas. Small place but exceptional food well priced. Octopus baked goat cheese beef stew all top notch. Only disappointment was they were out of the mushroom dish which I’m sure was well worth having. Not in the center of tourist area so a bit...More

Small restaurant with an excellent selection of tapas to choose from and great service. My favorite meal in Lisbon!!! (Hint: try to make a reservation. We were seated without one but people were turned away due to lack of reservation/space).

Actually visited in 2015 but forgot the name of the place until my son and daughter in law asked where is the best place to eat in Lisbon. Great memories of a tiny restaurant worth amazing food. The baked cheese with honey is a highlight,...More

Amazing Find. I got this restaurant by searching reviews. When we got there, I have to admit - I was worried. It looked like a mom and pop shop hole in the wall. Um - yeah, I was totally wrong. One of the best meals...More

Authentic Portuguese food in a rustic setting. Very friendly server and affordable prices. Everything we ate was delicious! One of our most unique dining experiences in the city. Would definitely recommend! Call ahead to reserve your table.

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center

My boyfriend and I visited in May and we walked everywhere and found Lisbon to be very safe. The only thing is it's very hilly and there are a lot of small streets that you can get lost in.

I contacted them via their Facebook page and was able to book a table for 10. Just had to fit the time around them. Definitely the best meal of the trip and such a lovely couple.
