We had a terrific meal in this little bar that was packed. The waiter, Raphael, was lovely and we pretty much let him choose our meal - and we weren't disappointed!! The highlight was a slow cooked beef dish with a red wine sauce. It...More

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,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
theaters abound. Start off by admiring the river from
the Santa Catarina belvedere, have a cocktail at
PARK's rooftop bar, try a typical Portuguese steak, or
