Wow tough reviewing crowd! I came here twice over 4+ days, as the restaurant is right across from the Sana Lisboa Hotel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, and offered a menu in (I think) 6 different languages. The menu features very nice seafood and meat choices, and the helpings were both large Ana very tasty. I would strongly... More

Fresh not expensive seafood. Compact inside. Very quiet. Good service. Not romantic place. So, if you hungry - This place sounds like "food/eat & go" :) enjoy it anyway.

My wife and I were visiting Lisbon and arrived during a Sunday afternoon in our nearby hotel at Marques de Pombal. As some local restaurants are shut at this time (including a trip advisor recommendation nearby), we asked advice from the receptionist and this was one of 2 recommendations. We enjoyed our first meal sufficiently that we did not seek... More

We ate at O Cardo our 1st night in Lisbon. We got in early evening to our hotel, and found O Cardo about a block and a half away. The place looked nice, the menu was interesting, we were tired and so we settled in. I had the gambas "al ajillo" which was prawns boiled and served in olive oil... More

Close to Marques de Pombal Square, you can find some of well-known portuguese dishes. Tip 1 - try the grilled sardines, simply delicious! Tip 2 - check the daily menu where you will find great offers

Restaurants in Lisbon seems like a food chain. They all look alike and they all have the same dishes. No substitutions allowed. On the other hand, in spite of the simple culinary techniques they use, food quality is always good. Don't make mistakes: a Grilled fish with boiled potates will always be a fantastic meal in Lisbon. This palce was... More

Tripadvisor reviews indicated this was just what we were looking for: a basic, local restaurant. My wife and I both had grilled fish and they were done to perfection. Service was very professional and helpful.

We went on our first night in Lisbon. You don't go there for the atmosphere or decoration very basic. The food was quite good. I had the Porc Alentejo( braised pork with clams) with fries and my husband had roast suckling pig. . It was across the street from our hotel. They serve a lot of seafood and fish.

We were in the hotel close by and looking for a local spot to eat. The pizza place around the corner did not take credit cards, so we came here. Most of the reviews are pretty accurate. The waiters have been here for years, are very efficient at what they do but they do speak English and we had no... More
