We enjoyed our sandwiches and a Guinness, served up by a very kind waitress in a typical pub atmosphere. Low prices. They do not discourage smoking, so beware if that is an issue for you.

I would love to give this place a great review as the food was good but I don't want to be breathing in cigarette smoke while I am eating inside. Portuguese law prohibits smoking inside restaurants. Make the smokers go outside

Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
