The concierge at our hotel recommended this restaurant our first evening in Lisbon. We had such a good meal in a warm and friendly environment that we returned on our last night in town. We had the seafood & pork stew for two both nights since we both loved it on our first outing. Delicious & huge! We also enjoyed... More

We had a delightful dinner at this family friendly place. An attractive mixture of locals and tourists visitors. The food was typical Portuguese and the prices were very affordable. The highlight for me was the grilled sardines and my daughter loved her homemade veggie soup (which only cost €1.50!!!). We had a great evening with a lot of good honest... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening meal at Farol de Santa Luzia. Great service. Cozy traditional atmosphere. Our soups were delicious. The stuffed chicken was a hit. But the pork and shrimp Cataplana cooked in a traditional copper pot was the show stopper. Shrimp, clams sausage, bacon and pork cooked together to create an incredibly flavorful stew.

Hello Laura, We are glad you enjoyed your experience at our restaurant. The pork Cataplana is my personal favorite dish! The quantity is for Portuguese people. We eat a lot :) Best Regards, Luís Trigueiro More

Good Portuguese traditional food, efficient service. Definitely recommended. Very affordable for the quality but again Lisbon is not very expensive.

We stopped in here on our last, rainy night in Lisbon. My husband had wanted to try this restaurant anyway, and it was a bit too slippery to head down the hill to Rossio, which had been our original destination. We shared the tasty fish stew, which made it a very economical last dinner -- no complaints; everything was as... More

We had a nice evening with friends at the restaurant. Service was efficient. Two of us shared a seafood cataplana which was very good for the price. Desserts were fine, but not exceptional. The vinho verde at 18€50/bottle was a nice choice and we ended up ordering 2 bottles for the four of us.

Had a great meal here during our short break to Lisbon. Both fish and meat dishes were excellent, and the service was great. Would definitely go here again.

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
