Typically a set meal (ideally for 2) with soup, 3 tapas and a main course, with options for drinks and dessert. The recipes change each day. Hard to find, this little place is is a treasure. Really nice and chill staff.

Mouraria is a beautiful area in Lisbon and the restaurant is there. It's rather small, so it's better to make a reservation in advance. The food is in the indian style, all vegetarian and vegan. The taste of the food is heaven, even for my...More

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
