I visited here with my friend on a Saturday night in Lisbon. As two major cat lovers the name of this restaurant seemed like a sign! The restaurant has a really cute interior and is on a picturesque quiet little side street. We sat outside with blankets (it was a little chilly the evening we were there) and has a... More

Good place nearby tourist area. Very delicious food with decent portions. My wife felt really bad on that day and waiter tried to auggest what she can and cant eat. That is highly appriciated though! The only problem of that place is that its cash only. So if you plan to go there armor yourself in euros ;)

The ambiente is very beautifull located in a little alley. It has only few tables. We've eaten salat and drunk some cappochino. The salat was very very tastey and the cappochino was the best we've tried in Portugal! The prices are not to high. The service is also very friendly.

Our family had a very enjoyable evening here with great food and helpful staff. I booked by email the day before and got a very quick response to say they had a table for us.

We were delightfully wandering the Alfama neighborhood, with no particular destination. It was a beautiful day, but the family was starting to get hot and tired. I looked up a little side street of a very residential neighborhood and saw a couple little tables and chairs, so we headed there for some refreshment. We had no expectations other than some...

Great little find, great service in this bustling little eatery. Fabulous local beers and great daily specials. I had the prawns in chilli cream sauce with linguine...... the prawns were some of the freshest I've had and succulent and also a very generous portion. Worth the climb up the hills to earn your lunch here!

What a fantastic place. The bistro is fairly small, so booking would be recommended. The food was fantastic and the service outstanding. Their menu is not available online as they regularly change it but it is not overly expensive. Our meal for two including drinks came to about £50. If we return to Lisbon, I will make sure we eat...

We enjoyed bread, olives, main course and dessert with drinks for £50 . The bistro is small with just a few tables so booking recommended. Menu not available online as no website and menu changes regularly. The service was really friendly and attentive.

Just back from Bistro Gate Pardo. What a gem of a place. Delicious food (I had the monk fish and saffron risotto) and wonderfully, personable service. Such a warm and welcoming environment too. Highly recommended.

Thank Stephd31

Neighbourhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
