We had dinner here on a Saturday night and we didn't enjoy the experience too much. The service was not friendly at all and the food was average (one of the dishes was good and the other not really). We believe it was too expensive for the experience and we would not repeat it. It felt like the service was... More

We had lunch at Restauranre Carmo in November and were impressed by the friendly, helpful service, the well cooked, tasty, local food and the relaxed ambience. I had dourado with seafood rice and my had a salmon salad. Both were excellent and the meal was very reasonably priced.

Ordered pan fried cubed tenderloin for appetizer, it was too salty I sent it back to the kitchen. The waiter was very attentive and replace our order. Not that I have low tolerance of saltiness, but it was the saltiest food I have ever tasted while in Portugal. The chef asked whether he should adjust the salt for our Seafood... More

A very simple yet varied menu, with some Portuguese specialities. Beautifully cooked and served, as well as being very reasonably priced. Service was incredibly efficient no friendly.

I visited Carmo on a Saturday evening with family while on a short break in Lisbon. Our party of 6 was quickly seated in one of the rooms that held 3 other tables of guests. We all found the food delicious, the staff very friendly and polite, and the atmosphere vibrant and pleasant. The dishes were sensibly priced (and much... More

6 of us had a meal at this traditional Portuguese restaurant which has many local dishes including cod and octopus. The place has a traditional feel too, not modern or old but just nice with a good atmosphere. They seated us at a round table which is always better for groups. Service was good and the food excellent as was... More

We had a fantastic meal at Restaurant Carmo on our first night in Lisbon. Our friendly server Rafael made some excellent recommendations and gave us some language tips. The shrimp was outstanding and while the scrambled eggs were somewhat unexpected on a dinner menu, they were the best I've ever tasted.

Well, nothing special and that's it. Average food, average service, average price. All average, not worth coming back.

Staying in Chiado & Carmo

Neighbourhood Profile
Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally, "squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa, having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used to. You can also enjoy breathtaking views of Lisbon from the Elevador de Santa Justa or the Carmo Convent, for example. A commercial neighborhood at its core, especially for its Garrett and Carmo streets, Chiado is to this day a mandatory visit in Lisbon.
