Walking into Crisfama is like walking into a relative's dining room. The food is as good as anything your favourite aunt would prepare. The welcome is warm, full of good humour and laid-back. It is a small restaurant with a huge heart. We loved everything...about it, including the well aged Port. Explore Lisbon and find this place is our advice. They keep tributes on site from around the world for good reasonMore

The food was less than average of what we experienced in Lisbon. It was a total tourist trap with the owner seems to be engaging in quirky (almost theatre like) customer interactions. He seemed to spend more time joking and often poking fun at his...customers than providing service. 100% of the customers occupying the tiny room were tourists and most seemed to sharing our mood.More

Together with my friend we have visited Crisfama couple of weeks ago. Located in Alfama, one of Lisbon’s oldest areas, this place is a real gem. The place is run by husband and wife - Fernando is looking after guests and Teresa is cooking. The...place is very small and it’s best you book before you go. But let me tell you, the food is absolutely delicious. Prepared from scratch, fresh, flavoursome - even the bread rolls are being baked as you order! We have enjoyed beautifully cooked fish and then home made chocolate orange cake for dessert. Fernando was such a great host, he made us feel very welcomed, in fact he spoke to all of his guests. If we ever are in Lisbon again we will definitely be back. This is the place to go if you want to taste genuine Portuguese cuisine.More

I found out about this restaurant in april 2019. I love that its a small restaurant. The food is amazing and the owner is so nice. After that this became my favorite restaurant. In december 2019 i visited again and last week we also visited...this place twice. The food is so amazing and we definitely loved the desserts. The owner is funny and thoughtful and made sure we had an amazing experience every time i went there. If i am visiting lisbon again, i will always visit this restaurant. See you next time! :)More

We had an amazing meal here on our first day in Lisbon, run by husband and wife. Very friendly, enormous portions of fish (we had seabass and tuna) at amazing value, cooked really well. Generously portioned glasses of wine, €1.55 for a bottle of Sagres....The perfect start to our time in Portugal.More
