Tasca Urso offers a selection of very traditional dishes, cooked in a traditional way and served without and chic around them. Basic comfy food, well cooked. Presentation, decor and staff (friendly and charming but very limited English and questions regarding some dishes could not be...More

We had this recommended and the food was very good and tasty. The downside was the size of portion, I had the pigs cheeks and there was enough for 2 people, I ordered the tomato rice which I'd never had before it was beautiful and...More

We were recommended this Tasca by a young professional local resident. We did not expect great ambience as we went early; but the place was quite cold, food indifferent, wine surprisingly poor for Lisbon. Did not enjoy much.

Nice decor. The food was ok (the octopus fillet was pretty good). Would advise on sharing several little dishes if you go on a little group. Service was a bit slow. Prices are fine but, if on a budget, do not be too adventurous on...More

But overpriced for what it was really. I had cod and spinach with some breadcrumbs and partner had some tapas (everything was in pastry). Waitresses were lovely. We had to ask for butter with our bread or it would have just been plain dry bread...More

We visited for the fixed lunch when the restaurant was almost empty, so I can't say much to agree or disagree with the comments on price and ambience that others have experienced in the evening. What we found was a really good value lunch that...More

The food was good, the staff was helpful and the service quite fast. The place is also nice and so is the location. That being said, it is expensive for what you get. You can get the same quality a lot cheaper in Lisbon. Had...More

Very low value for the quality, high cover charge. Staff was polite yet overwhelmed with workload. Food was only ok.

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
