Despite the very good reviews my visit left me disapointed. Largish restaurant with closely packed tables. Air conditioning over efficient and food went cold quickly. Receptionist unsmiling and unwelcoming. Waiting staff had impatient attitude. Food delivery very fast. Steak is the house speciality; ok but...More

One of the best steak i ever had. My well-done was ideal, my friends took medium and were a little too sanguinary. Big portions and good idea with salad bar.

I can't compare Argentinian meat with this one, ok. But, if you are in for some meat (grilled) and want to pay for normal prices, I couldn't suggest a better place! Space: quite big but still, book in advance! Can get full even during the...More

First, if you like steak then come here! Second if you like steak come here. Fish eaters and vegetarians should avoid. Great value for money. Wines were amazing and you guessed it so was the steak!!

If you like a "real" good steak : go to Carvoaria. The steak was excellent. Friendly and helpfull staff. Probably the place is more visited by local people, but since our Hotel was only a street away we took the chance to try , and...More

I actually ate here twice before writing this review. I really wanted to love it, but I just don't. The prices are good, the service is friendly, and the restaurant is filled with locals, so it must good, right? No. It wasn't. The steaks were...More

Famous place where the "espetadas" are the star. Served with shrimps you have to order side dishes too. The salad buffet is free for a grill order. For dessert, the pavlova is very good. Beware of the starters, they are expensive.

They serve great quality beef and have a fantastic wine list. I loved their Dona Maria Reserva Amantis 2012 wine and the Posta Mirandesa steak. Very reasonably priced and the service is really efficient and quick, however nothing outstanding. It's a busy place, therefore booking...More

This neighborhood restaurant is not in a great area but it is charming and cooks tremendous Portugese food. We ate there 3 out of 5 nights in Lisbon. IMPORTANT: They have two menus--one in Portugese and one in English. All of the very traditional dishes are on the Portugese menu and not listed on the English menu for some reason. We had bachau lau (salted cod baked in olive oil and garlic--yummy!), grilled pork wrapped in bacon and grilled with green pepper (fantastic!), grilled salmon and grilled black pig. Look around at what the Portugese are ordering and just point and say that's what you want--the wait staff speaks fairly good English. Almost everyone was Portugese from that neighborhood so we felt it was very authentic. Prices ran about 7-12 euros per person for the main course and it came with a trip to the salad bar included in the price.
