Second time to this astonishingly large department store in Lisbon (am fairly familiar with the original Spanish ones). Most of the top brands (High Street and designer).

Whilst many staff at different brand stores are nice and normal, it’s always the handful of ones with the attitude that spoil it.

You know the ones - they simply ignore you, even though you’ve decided that this designer bag is ok, it’ll do, whatever, and just want to pay and move on (sorry, I do manshopping).

Up to the 7th floor for a coffee whilst dearest half and teen daughter do more shopping. Fabulous location, seems a haven amongst Lisbon’s rooftops. Only I sat down after asking the waiter for two coffees, waited half an hour for said coffees (had a newspaper, not too bad), went inside (‘they may be rather busy, I’ll go and check’) to catch a waiter amongst the tumbling tumbleweeds, sat down, had to ask again, a little more sternly. Waiter came and took our order (again...), by then it was too chilly outside. Asked the girl if it was ok, it was, sat down in a wee corner, coffees came to three tables ahead: ‘oh, that section (where we were sitting) is closed’. Ok, so I move three tables, then. Really? Really? Then paying you get a bill from someone, pay somewhere else... och, just keep yer coffee tar yerselves, then.

Joke aside, this place has the distinct feel of old-fashioned snobbery. Nothing to do with wealth, style, rich, or poor. Just a matter of good manners.

Not worth the palaver, even if some seriously good shopping to be had here...

This was a big shopping mall with all good brands available. If lucky you can have season discounts. Nice place to have a dinner or short coffee with good sweets. It is well located in the centre. Definitely would recommend my friends to visit this mall.

Next to the Sao Sebastao you will find this shopping mall which is mainly for expensive brands. However, time to time they make a affordable sales.

This is a big multi-floor mall with the kind of typical mall shopping items you can find around the world. If you are looking to shop then this is a comfortable place to do it. The mall is located next to Parque Eduardo VII (at the top of the hill) and nearby the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum. This area of Lisbon is well maintained and the older looking buildings are pretty.
