When we arrived - and before we had ordered - a plate of bread, some olives and some small slices of cheese were put on the table. We nibbled at some of it. When the the bill came we were charged €7 for this! I ordered swordfish - but it was nothing like the swordfish I have eaten many times... More

Humble, welcoming and caring attitude towards customers, real effort to prepare the meal tasty from good ingredients - local food with wonderful taste - for common people. Price level customer kept customer friendly - this modest place certainly does not need to have in thrower at the door. Who cares about blingbling, when you have been here. All in all... More

I went here with my girlfriend for a nice little dinner, although I would not call this place romantic it does have a certain charm. We were treated to a little magic show by the resident magician before our meal (most of his tricks were quite impressive). The food was very good. Although not pretty the cuddle fish and swordfish... More

Lisbon is full of interesting food proposal, from small hole-in-the-wall places to gourmet, high level, Michelin-starred restaurants: actually, Lisboa is living a renaissance of quality cuisine so you'll have no problem in finding interesting places to eat. But at least for the first night in Lisboa you should always treat yourself to one of the best choices you can do:... More

If you like fish and seafood try this restaurant. Family runned, very cosy, warm and friendly staff. Delicious and very fresh food. Try the tuna steak and a good wine or the white sangria even is not typical portuguese. Price very reasonable.

We chose this restaurant during our stay in Lisbon due to the discount through the Fork, but would never recommend this place. Almost nothing said in the menu was available, the food was not good and the service neither. At the end there were things not asked in the bill and the owner clearly showed disappointment in applying the discount.

Staying in Principe Real

Neighbourhood Profile
Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a visit and it won't let you down: its attractions include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace, home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center with its cafes, art galleries and luxury shops... and even if you don't buy anything, take a look inside just for its marvellous interiors. On top of this, Príncipe Real offers a variety of places to eat: if you're in a hurry, drop by "Pizza a Pezzi"; and if you're not, taste the delicious Honorato hamburgers, Argentinian cuisine at La Paparrucha and also great, delicious Portuguese food at Tascardoso!
