As mentioned before it's a good idea to get here early enough so that you don't have to wait. We didn't, so Instead of queuing for 30 mins we just went downstairs to the lobby bar and had a drink. Once a table was ready...More

Found at the top of the Bairro Alto Hotel. Superb views over the city. Very relaxing with chilled out music. Food was delicious. Fairly small in size so fills up very quickly 👌👌👌

A calming space in busy Bairro Alto, the rooftop bar is beautifully decorated and boasts lovely views over Lisbon. Although the service was warm and friendly, it was rather slow so don't visit when you're in a rush. This didn't put us off though and...More

On the top floor of Bairro Alto Hotel you'll find the BA Terrace, awarded as the 4th best hotel-terrace view in the world... a space enjoyed by everyone and well-known to the people of Lisbon, who enjoy the best that the city has to offer; in this case, it's having a good time while contemplating the unique view of Rio Tejo, of the old Lisbon rooftops and of the sunset from behind the bridge over Rio Tejo...

Breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack at Terrace BA
Come alone or with friends, for a meal, a snack or a drink, or even to simply relax and enjoy a good book on one of the comfy chaise longues, which invite you to do nothing at all...to the tune of good "chill-out" music.

The atmosphere on the terrace could not be more relaxed and the menu presents suggestions for all type of meals, though varies through the seasons. Count on light options, from salads to sandwiches, including the famous BA Ceasar Salad. Accompany your choice with the well-known ice juices, mojitos or BA's iced tea.
