We loved this little restaurant. It is a tapas style establishment and you can sample many traditional Portuguese dishes. Everything is very fresh and very delicious. I strongly recommend it. It is surprisingly inexpensive, as well.

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.
