Great place and great people. Perfect for some chill time or for a quick lunch. The bartender is very kind and the stuff is really cheap!

Don't expect to have dinner there, cocktails are cheap but nothing great. The only good thing is the terrace

I would consider myself a fan of this place, considering the great beer prices, cozy feel, and great bartenders. There were really only two reasons we went to this bar: the close proximity to old Alfama, and have big glasses of whisky and strong gin and tonics, and if I hadn't already eaten, I would have grabbed some bar food...

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
