Good little cafe, especially for a park cafe, really good choice of food for lunch-don't know if it's open in the evening- main problem I think is management. They have plenty of outside space but only about 8 tables, so there were large queues, when...More

Location is nice but the service very slow. They forgot our order so we had to wait more than 1h for our meal. Should have read the reviews before we stopped there:)

We enjoyed the taste of the meals. The service could be a little bit faster. But you are in Lisbon, have time and enjoy.

We came across this cafe by chance and decided to relax under the trees and have a drink. That led to a bite to eat. In fact we enjoyed the ambiance and our food enough to return for lunch. So the tables rock on the...More

Great location in the park and really enjoyed my ice coffee, it was delicious. However, the prices are much too high, some of the highest I've seen in Lisbon. The staff didn't seem that interested either.

We got to Esplanada Café totally by chance while wondering the streets of Lisbon in the afternoon. It is located in a very charming park. It is quiet and has a great atmosphere. Not touristy at all, which is great. The servers are friendly and...More

Rather quiet and calm on a beginning of february, but definitely a place worth visiting. Not far away from intersting places to visit in Lisbon, like f.e. Bairro Alto, Rato, Chiado, Santa Catarina or Baixa. Some nice bars and stores in the surroundings.

We've stopped here at least a dozen times over the past couple of years, probably every time we happen to be near Principe Real in fact. It's just a great place to chill and have a light lunch or even just a beer or coffee....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
