In the centre of the city but surprisingly not overrun. Locals and tourists alike flock this place for the bifanas which are delicious. Service is quick and accommodating. Bring cash.

Simple snack bar next to Praca Luis de Camoes. They serve perhaps the best sandwich I’ve eaten. A bifana is a simple but outrageously delicious sandwich. Pork on soft bread with a great crust. Add yellow mustard and piri piri sauce and match with a...Sagres beer. Heavenly good. I look forward to this sandwich when I come to Lisbon.More

Not going to lie - I went here because I loved Anthony Bourdain and wanted to try somewhere he'd been. I wasn't expecting much but it ended up being a great meal! I don't speak Portuguese (other than simple pleasantries) but the staff went above...and beyond to help me understand ordering, as the set up is a little confusing for an outsider between counter service and tables and what not. I got the pork bifana with cheese and it was excellent! As recommended, I got it with a beer. This was one of my cheapest meals in Lisbon but also easily one of the best. I plan to visit again next time I'm there!More

Since this place was just up the hill from my hotel I went everyday in some capacity. I kept going back for the cheap, down to earth food that is bursting with flavour, and also possibly maybe because of the cheap booze.... The Bifana was...awesome, amongst the best I've had in Portugal, the Prego com Queijo also disserves some love. It's also very impressive how hard the staff work, absolute machines the lot of themMore

Drunk locals roaring at the bar. Staff serve you after others if a tourist. Food is thrown at you! Charged more if not local. Chewy meat and ugly setting. Made famous by Bourdain but it is crap

It was edible, but very underwhelming having in mind the hype around it, it's just very chewy meat, with nice bread and mustard that takes over the taste.

A return trip - O Trevo is famous for its Bifana. It is delicious and a bargain - have it with chips and beer. It has communal tables, which allow you you to see all walks of life congregate at this temple to paprika porn...in a bun.More

Also noticed by trip advisor we can recommend this location, the Bifana was nice and the price are also fair. It might be crowded but worth trying out. Only thing to avoid are the hamburger or cheesburger - it might not be whot one expects...(but still fair for the small price): It is just meat and cheese in a bread nothing more - adequate for the price, but not if you expect a "real" one. Better go to the other options that are well worth. Would come back definitely.More

Didn't know what to expect. Place was mobbed. This was our first stop on a ten venue self guided food tour. Basic pork sandwich was excellent and a great deal. Kind of chaotic. You're not going to get kind gentle service here. But once the...guy behind the counter figured out we were travelers, he pointed us to a table, told us to sit and came over. Menu is on the wall. Not sure if they have other languages. Oddly, he thought we were sitting with a young woman who was across from us and put her food on our tab! She had helped us figure out how to navigate the place so we picked up her meal. Very good food, typical beer. Lots of locals.More

Following the local people and the ratings we decided to have a lunch here. A sandwich with meat and mustard was one of the best things we've had during our two week'stay in Portugal. Prices great. Cash only.

Late lunch. Cold cod cake was nice but the pork sandwich was nothing special. Cheap prices. Very local and informal. Serves green wine - a local specialty which was nice to try.
