We were estimated a 20 minute wait for a table, we left at 70 minutes without our starter order being taken, very disappointing

We arrived here at 7pm and had a ginghina whilst waiting for a table to become free. Sadly the service was terribly slow. Starters arrived about twenty minutes after ordering and were ok but lacking in seasoning. We then waited a further thirty minutes for our main courses, by this time the hunger had subsided! Fish stew was bland and... More

Had lunch and a beer here during one of our days in Lisbon. Food was more than decent and beers were nice. The location is absolutely superb, right next to the Sé cathedral with a small terrace. We took an avocado burger and a mushroom chicken sandwich, which did not disappoint. Service was OK but not the friendliest we have... More

After a 20 minute walking journey from the apartment we rented, we finally found this small, quaint restaurant. We arrived about 10:00PM, no table immediately available. Ordered a bottle of pink bubbly (€16). Seriously. Sat at a very cute table in the nook of a window overlooking the street. Fun to people watch. We ordered two starters (Figs/Ham/Brie without the...

Upon the recommendation of our concierge at the Santiago de Alfama Hotel that this was a great local spot, we gave it a shot and were rewarded. The food and friendly service were so spot on that we spent hours here and ended up closing the place down. Lots of tables outside, just opposite a 12th century cathedral, it's an... More

Portuguese as well as tourists eat and drink here. It is a little off the beaten track which basically make it more attractive. Food is good, prepared with attention and many ingredients. Good staff. We had scrimp, caprese, steaks and fish stew. All very good, especially considering the low prices. Staff was kind and attentive.

The place is really cozy and I would recommend it for drinks, and perhaps lunch, but NOT dinner. They did not have half of the stuff on the menu, and the food was really bad.

First time in Lisbon, wandering down from the castle via the Cathedral and found Cruzes Credo completely by accident. Went next door first, didn't like the look of it, came back, sat down on the pavement and waited.... Never expected what followed - the boss and his friend just made for the best lunch experience I can recall. The food... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and we were very pleased with it. It's in the Alfama area, which we had fallen in love with, in the shadow of an old church. We enjoyed our interesting appetizers- mine was a grape, Brie, ham mix- and our excellent meals. The salmon was delicious! The service was slow but it was a very... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
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 imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
