Description: Restaurant Forest of Escadinhas is located in a former church in the street of Santa Justa. Located in the downtown historic district, serves as a passage for those who rises and falls to the Castelo de São Jorge. This restaurant is since 1993 to serve its customers its specialties of fish and meat on coal. In a simple and familiar environment has the capacity to 40 seats and serves traditional Portuguese food. Genuine flavors, our dishes are mainly of fresh fish and very healthy. We recommend that you try our mixed fish and meat. After a nice meal is invited to experience some of our fantastic homemade desserts, made to surprise him. The restaurant offers a very characteristic terrace in stairways and is the perfect place for a romantic meal for two or for lunch with friends. Best sardines in Lisbon. We have meat and fresh fish grilled in charcoal (Steak, ribs, fresh sausages, sardines, cod fish, grilled squid...)

There were 9 of us for lunch. Superb staff, very helpful with our order, and wine choice. Clearly he was very passionate about the restaurant, and it showed. It was a recommendation from a friend, and so glad we went, and it was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of busy streets. Tapas was superb, and reasonably priced for 5 star service. Hightly recommend.

Wonderful, friendly service. Delicious, fresh food. Reasonably priced. Tucked away, so it’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of Lisbon and dine on some incredible seafood. Didn’t try any of the meats, but I am sure they are great as well. Definitely give the Sea Bream (Dorado) a try. Highly recommended.

We found the restaurant very easily off of Rua Augusta but it wasn't yet open. One of the staff members was just getting in and told us to wait. So we walked around some more and came back right before 12 (their opening hours). By then they were open and very friendly. I ordered the traditional Portuguese sausage, my mom had the special (pork chop) and my brother the cod. Everything was delicious, flavorful with large portions and very well priced. The staff is very friendly and the setting itself is great - if the weather permits, stay outside (after all, what's Lisbon without its steps!).
Make sure you make it in time for lunch because by the time we left at about 1, the place was getting quite full.

Food very good. I had salmon steak which came with some salad garnish and boiled potatoes. I don't eat potatoes, although they looked good, so I ordered a side of veg, which turned out to be just broccoli. Not complaining though. My partner had grilled sardines. My salmon steak was very good. The service was exceptional. There are only about five small tables outside, with quite a few tables, fairly densely packed, inside. When we arrived it was almost full and the only free table was at the back of the restaurant next to the kitchen. Because of the heat that day we were not keen on sitting there. Almost immediately however a table came free next to the entrance and we asked if we could move. No problem. Just as we arrived at that table the waitress and two others behind the counter ushered us outside, where another table had just become free. To have not one but three staff taking an interest is not an every day experience. Once seated, our waitress was quick to take our order and very friendly and efficient, not just with us but with those diners around us and those arriving. In summary, food very good, prices low for city centre, service exceptional even when packed out.
