The staff was really kind, they care about you. It's a tiny restaurant, they don't accept reservation for lunch so go there and wait, it's worth. We ate meat (very good) and bacalau cum nata (finally we tasted it...delicious). As a dessert a lemon mousse that wasn't too sweety but light...absolutely tasty! Recommended

nice relaxed lunch - a little pricy for some things but far higher quality than some of the neighbouring restaurants judged by what we saw people eating. Menu is all in Portugese but waiter was friendly and translated all for us.

Friendly service, and the best food we had in Lisbon (after eating at much pricier establishments). Location was convenient after walking Alfama and seeing the castle. Very tiny so you're lucky to snag a table. If it's full, wait! It'll be worth your time!

Stopped here for a rest. This place is very small but the waiter was very friendly. Had two colas and a piece of apple cake which was warm and really nice.. Nice homely little place.

This is just s small place in a corner just down from the Castle St. Jorge. There may be no more than 6 tables. It was a recommendation from the hotel we were staying at just around the corner. My husband thought it was the best meal he had in Lisbon. For me it was close. My dish , the... More

Quaint little place to the left of the entrance to the castle on a corner you'll find this lovely little restaurant. The food is delicious and the owners are lovely. Definitely recommend it for a great place to eat.

Found this on the way to the castle. Sun had just come out and cafe was a sun trap. Sat here for a couple of beers to make the most of it being out. Good place to people watch. Service was very good, as the owner was very friendly and liked the way we tried to speak Portuguese.

Great location right next to Castelo. Charming small restaurant with friendly service. Unfortunately, our food wasn't very good. The bacalao was smothered in a tasteless sauce. We wanted this to be good but it wasn't.

Walked up the hill to the Castle, this place appeared just at the right time. A seat outside in the sun and a couple of drinks is just what we needed before tackling the castle.

We booked here as we were stating very locally and usually TripAdvisor is reliable for recommendations. Not this time for this couple. The menu looked interesting and the restaurant is attractive (very small) and homely. However both of our meals were pretty tasteless dishes (one cod and the other monkfish) and someone would have to work very hard to convince... More

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.
