Unfortunately my experience here was terrible, I was mistreated and disrespected by the staff and would not recommend it to anyone. I arrived here with my wife and son and asked the waiter for a table, he briskly answered that I could choose any table outside except the one that was reserved. The patio was almost full, so out of... More

Pricey because of the location and view. Decent food, not as good as I was expecting, but still good.

A sunny February day, it was time to visit the Castelo de S. Jorge. After a delightful tour around the area, we decided to have lunch in the Casa do Leao. It was truly an exquisite choice. Excellent service, excellent environment and heavenly food. Especially the risotto. I still dream about it. Milan (Italy), you have a lot to learn... More

The Cafe in the winter is all indoors so it was rather crowded. The staff however was courteous and quick. You order cafeteria style , pick up your food and they bring the drinks to your table. We stopped in for a light snack and there were selections of pastries, sandwiches etc. The cappuccino was wonderful! The decor was plain... More

It is okay for a coffe and a cookie. We did not try the food dishes. The room is quite uninspiring and it is self service. The big advantage is the place - on the top of Lisbon.

Always amazes me that reviewers can have such diverse experiences. We stumbled on this place for lunch while touring the castle. Initially we were the only two people in the restaurant, a party of 4 came in a little later. The food was great. I had the sea bass (perfect) and my partner went for the meat dish (again, cooked...

What an amazing experience to be able to wander around the Castle terraces at night with the most stunning views. A real treat. The restaurant was really good to. Nice menu choices and very good quality. There was a big party on whilst we were eating, but we still had outstanding service and food. Great for a special evening.

Had a lovely dinner for our daughter's birthday at Casa do Leão, our second visit in a year. The location, the setting, and the view are simply magnificent. Excellent service too.

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music. The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the city but the contiguous neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
