Authentic Portuguese food in a rustic setting. Very friendly server and affordable prices. Everything we ate was delicious! One of our most unique dining experiences in the city. Would definitely recommend! Call ahead to reserve your table.

I don't know if you saw House of cards, but this is the kind of restaurant that Frank Underwood will eat. Please try everything. P.s. The waiter (Alexandru) is the best in town. Btw, this is my first review :)

A simple family place, almost like eating in their front room, right off a back street. The dishes are relatively simple, but really well prepared. Octopus with smoked paprika was the highlight, but everything was great. Alexandro did all the front of house work, and...More

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center

My boyfriend and I visited in May and we walked everywhere and found Lisbon to be very safe. The only thing is it's very hilly and there are a lot of small streets that you can get lost in.

I contacted them via their Facebook page and was able to book a table for 10. Just had to fit the time around them. Definitely the best meal of the trip and such a lovely couple.
