Apparently, according to previous reviews, you will either love your time at A Baiuca, or you will hate it. I fall into the former category. Perhaps I can help prepare others for the experience so that expectations are realistic and your enjoyment is enhanced. It...More

Stopped here after wondering around bierro alto for awhile. The place looks nice, the good was very good, and I believe it was the owners who served the four of us and turned out to be very nice people. We had a very pleasant meal...More

We reserved (recommended!) a table on a Monday night and it was really worth it! The starters, simple like all the rest, were excellent (ham, tuna salad), the main course (veal, octopus rice) good, followed by a delicious dessert. But, the food is anyway just...More

We (5 friends) booked a "fado evening" in this location. What an experience! The place is so little - but somehow familiar, you feel like among friends... Most of fado performers are amateurs (the restaurant staff included!) - but they are truly dedicated and we...More

Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and,
of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.
The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755
destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained
standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent
Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the
Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
