Lovely, quirky little restaurant. The food was fantastic (I had tuna and my partner had the bacalhau, both delicious) and it was a delight to be served by such a charming, knowledgeable maître de. It's very small (6 tables for two) so make a reservation if you can. Great setting next to the castle. Hope to return and would highly... More

You need to book in advance. Small, very pleasant space. Books to read; jewellery on sale. Personable service. Interesting Portugese wines on offer. Fish dishes predominate. Fantastic for a relaxed holiday dinner.

The Lonely planet guide recommend this small restaurant as number one in the Alfama district - I completely agree. Having stumbled across it by accident we realised that it was rated as a good restaurant so we waited until seated as there were only 12 tables and most days it is booked up. I recommend that if anyone does go... More

My boyfriend and I were on a transfer flight to London and had a few hours to kill in Lisbon. We googled a central Metro stop and when we got there we googled restaurants nearby, at which point this restaurant came up with some good reviews and a note saying it was good for lunch. It was one of the... More

Brilliant little restaurant with excellent food and multi-lingual staff. Superb meat and fish dishes for around 10 euros. Wine is excellent too. Highly recommended but you will need to book in advance most nights as there are only about 12 tables.

12 months or more ago I was visiting Lisbon on a stifling hot Sunday. I couldn't face dragging myself around for the afternoon , so ordered a glass or two of wine and sat outside this restaurant on the bench in the photo. It was in the shade and I had my book , and music echoing from the castle... More

We stopped there on a very hot day to have cold drink and they were delicious. Perfect location - nxt to the Castelo in a charming quiet street. Stop there for at least 2 hours after visiting Alfama or just Castelo. Enjoy your drinks... watching the life of the street... dreaming of never having to go back home....

A little hidden gem in the neighborhood❣️. We walked by it few times and there is always a wait. They also take reservation too. Finally got lucky yesterday for our late lunch at 2:30 pm. It was worth the wait. It's just a comfortable space with homemade food❣️. Everything was fresh tasting and tasty; we had cod and stuffed calamari,... More

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.
