Strategically situated in the Praça do Comércio, Aura Restaurante pleasantly surprises with its special internal decoration (having said that, the Venus of Milo copy was a whiff too much) while the modern portuguese dishes on our group menu were delicious and the overall experience delightful.

We ate here after just arriving in Lisbon. We arrived so early that nearly every other restaurant in Praça do Comércio was empty, except for Aura. The views of the square from the patio were perfect for people watching. My boyfriend and I both had omelettes, which were served with toast and salad. The food was average, but the view... More

Great choice of brunch options, and also good for hungry teenagers. No need to eat again during the day!

I had dinner with my wife at this restaurant and we enjoyed our food very much (we had risotto with "lingueirão" - shellfish - and duck breast). The service was nice and efficient. The only downpoint was the ladies room that, according to my wife, was not in the best of conditions (and that is not acceptable in a restaurant... More

Great location, wonderful salads and my favorite tuna sandwich. Right on Terreiro do Paco in the heart of the river front.

I really liked the food at Aura, but the service was just awful. It took the waiters about 10 minutes to bring me the menu, but afterwards nobody appeared for the following 30 minutes. Yes, there were many customers, but also later, when the terrace was nearly empty, the waiters seemed to be hiding. I spent 2 hours at Aura... More

If you enjoy watching the 'people parade' then the bars and restaurants around the Praca do Comercio are ideal. In summer I favor those on the east side up to noon and from noon onwards those on the west so you don't get fried by the sun. The restaurant Aura serves a pleasant range of snack sized meals and an... More

Drinks only outdoors. Nice location, but obviously understaffed with consequent poor service. The drinks were overpriced and the sangria tinta copo was undrinkable.

Dear Andre7Gide, First of all thank you for your comment, all of the critics we recieved are valid and we learn with them. Usually our clients love our Sangria, it´s strange that you think that the Sangria it was undrinkable, and in cases like that you can always ask for another one without paying for more. About the price is... More

Obviously a tourist location, we didn't have super high expectations and boy were we surprised! We had just arrived in Lisbon, could not get in to our hotel yet, so thought we'd grab lunch here. It was wonderful! There is a casual side of the restaurant and a more formal side- outside they are separated with a barrier and the... More

Nie cozy restaurant on the edge of a large downtown square, the Praca do Comercio which faces the river. Their house red and white wines are drinkable. You would not need to order anything else. We tried a set menu; the starter were scallops, main course beef and a tiramisu to round off the meal. The scallops were good. The... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
