I ordered Dorade and a site salat. The salat was ok but boring, the fish would have been good if it had not been partly raw. (I only discovered when eating the second slightly bigger half. Otherwise I would have given it back straight away.) The potatoes that came with it tasted old and were inedible. When raising the issues... More

We wanted of course to sit outside and here was easier to find a table for 3. We ordered some tapas and a caipirinha. The food that came was ok, but they did not have pimientos del padron anymore, that was a disappointed. Most of the waiters seems to have started working the same night there, they did not know...

Friendly staff to enter. Once you sit down they are quickly at your table for your order. We asked for a good bottle white dry whine. The waitress didn't know anything about wines and just recommended the most expensive one. We do not complain about the 12 euro for the bottle. The way they sell ... that is not in... More

We had no high expectations of enjoying the most fabulous meal, and what we got was fine, simple and tasty. Service and food was perfectly ok, in fact, everything was just average, including the price. Their are dozens of such places in the Bairro Alto area, probably some a little better, certainly a few a lot worse.

Traditional place, do not expect fancy stuff. Perfect for a late dinner if you pass by. Portions are good. Price on average. Tired staff (but it was late).

The O´Minhoto is a reasonable Restaurant in the Old Town of Lisbon. The food is somewhat the touristy standard of Bairro Alto, however my fish was really good. The service was good and friendly, the location is very convenient in the Old Town. There are definitely restaurants in Bairro Alto serving worse food.

We stopped here for dinner, looking for fish. The grilled fish plate for two was quite good in the end. But we had to wait nearly an hour to have it delivered. And when we complained, the manager came back with a paper that purported to show that our order had gone in forty minutes ago. Who does that sort... More

We walked by this small cosy restaurant on our way to our accommodation in the Alfama. It provided the perfect setting for wonderful grilled sardines - how much more typical can you get? We sat outside in the warm weather watching life go by and the Alfama locals go about their daily life. The waiter spoke no English, but provided... More

Nice location and ok service earns the two stars. The food was bland, boring and prepared without passion, care and most important spices.
