Amazing food - service and vibe - To have such amazing Goan food in Portugal is truly an experience - Chicken Xacuti was the highlight along with Goan fish curry - Chapati is super good and have it with one of the white wines - Hard to find but worth the adventure - Highly recommended -

A hidden restaurant has not so much space, but the menu offers lots of different dishes. I went there with my friends and we shared the dishes, which was a great option for someone like me, who has never tried Indian food. Although I'm not a big fan of spicy food, I have to admit I really liked the dishes.

We visited this restaurant for dinner and were really taken by shock to know that people do eat such flavored and spicy food. The food was amazing, my son... More

After tasty starters, my wife had fish curry, I had biriani, and they were both delicious. Service was very good, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Booking is essential as the restaurant is quite small, several people were turned away while we ate. Located not far from Rossio Metro in a tiny side street, a good map is also... More

This place is run by a nice lady who clearly has a deep love affair with Goa. We ordered a lamb xacuti and a chicken biriyani. The biriyani was very nicely spiced and had a good hint of heat in it. The xacuti was a very good dish (new to me) and had a deep, complex spicing that was very... More

We ate here on our final night in Lisbon and the food was fantastic! The staff were incredibly helpful and gave very helpful advice about our dishes and I ate some of the best desserts ever - date & cashew nut samosas. Delicious! A must!

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.
