It was day 1 of our holiday and we were feeling very hungry. We didn't have time to do much research and so we just walked into the first good looking place- we do don't have worried. This place set the standard for the rest...More

Went here as part of a tour dinner with Globus tours. It was right in the heart of city just up the street from the river. Lovely décor and attentive staff. We had a family style "mixed Portuguese foods" dinner which was excellent. For tourists...More

Lovely atmosphere in the Ribera area. We had the steak and the pork... all delicious. The service was very attentive. We could easily have shared a main!

Walked in early in the day for a reservation for that night. We got a very nice table and enjoyed delicious food and conversation. It seems more local than the rest of the neighborhood, but maybe because it wasn't right on the river.

After that I have strolled around in the Ribeira area I felt, that was time for lunch and then I found this restaurant at a side street. Tasty and plenty of food. Nice atmosphere, but busy personal, a big French group was coming for lunch.

The area of course it's full of tourists so you can't really feel the Portuguese feeling. However portions were large, and I had a good Bacalhau c/ Broa.

I will always make a reservation whenever I can in general, especially when travelling with kids. I think it's always easier to cancel or modify than try to get in. The restaurant is pretty big and they open late. I think... More
