It is very small so you must book or you won’t get in. This is a tapas or as the Portuguese say a petisco restaurant. Great value for money with friendly and helpful staff

I’m not sure what all the excitement is about truth be told. It certainly was a pleasant meal - the cod cakes were the highlight, the oily octopus and expensive sheep cheese was the low points. The servers were very pleasant and it’s definitely not...More

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

My boyfriend and I visited in May and we walked everywhere and found Lisbon to be very safe. The only thing is it's very hilly and there are a lot of small streets that you can get lost in.

I contacted them via their Facebook page and was able to book a table for 10. Just had to fit the time around them. Definitely the best meal of the trip and such a lovely couple.
