Description
Restaurant Forest of Escadinhas is located in a former church in the street of Santa Justa. Located in the downtown historic district, serves as a passage for those who rises and falls to the Castelo de São Jorge. This restaurant is since 1993 to serve its customers its specialties of fish and meat on coal. In a simple and familiar environment has the capacity to 40 seats and serves traditional Portuguese food. Genuine flavors, our dishes are mainly of fresh fish and very healthy. We recommend that you try our mixed fish and meat. After a nice meal is invited to experience some of our fantastic homemade desserts, made to surprise him. The restaurant offers a very characteristic terrace in stairways and is the perfect place for a romantic meal for two or for lunch with friends. Best sardines in Lisbon. We have meat and fresh fish grilled in charcoal (Steak, ribs, fresh sausages, sardines, cod fish, grilled squid...)
