A delicious pork Cataplan and a great dessert. Recommended by our hotel staff. It was a quiet night with plenty of room in the overflow room. Good service. Tasty wine and SuperBock beer.

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

Hello Liam, The reservation is very recommended specially if it is after 20:00. Before that the restaurant is much more calm. We open at 17:30 and close at 23:00 (Kitchen closes 22:30). Feel free to book a table by e-mail... More

In one of the seven hills of Lisbon, between Alfama and the Castle and looking at the viewpoint of Santa Luzia, is a cozy and traditional, rustic restaurant, serving typical dishes from traditional Portuguese cuisine. Housed in a XVIII century building, preserves the aura that gives it a certain charisma.
