Perfunctory welcome, unhurried service. Ran out of cod and swordfish, so just a couple of choices remained. Vegetables over cooked, fish ok. All in all, an adequate meal but surely there are better places to eat nearby.

Good Portuguese cuisine in home-made mother style recommended by my hostel staff. I had ordered squid rice and white wine clams. Its little pricey for me as I was eating alone but I think it is a good place for friends and family gathering.

The grilled fish was perfect and served with lovely boiled potatoes. The best meal in Lisbon. At €6.90 for the dish, a great value as well. The cod fish balls were good, but head towards anything grilled.

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside as it's a bit dated and unloved but this really is part of the charm! We had the most wonderful home cooked meal of octopus salad, bolinhas de balcalhau, arroz de mariscos, grilled salmon, pears in...More

Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,
Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply
"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
