Visited this restaurant for dinner on the recommendation of a friend from Lisbon. We wanted authentic Portuguese food and we were delighted by our meal here. It's a very small space and this adds to the charm. We had attentive service, Which wasn't hurried; something...More

I highly recommend this little restaurant, all the pesticos were excellent. I am still thinking about that grilled chorizo with Moscatel sauce! It was my best meal during my weekend in Lisbon!

Would really recommend this restaurant- we found it because it was close to our air bnb and are really glad we came across it. The restaurant is small- seats a max of 15 people I think, so if you can, book in advance. We ordered...More

Based on Tripadviser opening times, we made the special effort to go to this place but when we arrived, it was closed. This was at about 7.15pm on a Tuesday evening in late March so not a prime time. However, there are not any other...More

Amazing food. We went back the next night to try the remainder of the menu. These guys provide a great dining experience for an unbelievable price. Highlight of our stay in Lisbon.

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

I'm very interested in this restaurant. We are staying in Rossio area and Google Map says it's about 25min walk. Is it safe to walk there at night, or we'd better take a taxi?

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.
