We visited the Castelo de Sao Jorge in order to dine in this restaurant as we had been advised it was very authentic food with great views over the city. The staff were attentive, friendly and made the evening veery enjoyable. Would I recommend it?...More

We can 'second' or 'third' the other recommendations! Excellent sea bass & lovely sunset view. We reserved online & Sandy Santos responded promptly & efficiently, reconfirming before we left the US.

We were tired and this restaurant at the Castelo St Jorges found us a table inside. Food pleasant for a highly touristed place, the building is interesting, the service very very slow, although we weren't in a hurry.

Sat outside. Having the menu thrown back-handed at me wasn't a great start. Adding something to the order and having the waiter roll his eyes in annoyance began to augment my displeasure. The cardboard burger with "rocket salad" (read: four pieces of rocket) at premium...More

This was terrible if not farcical. Menu's slammed at the table. Eyes rolled for any request like, you know, food. Slowest service ever and 15 minutes to get the bill. Food was mediocre, to say the least. We were too amused to be angry but...More
