A beautiful spot to watch the sunset over the city and have a drink from a decent selection. I would not recommend eating there as the food is in my opinion overpriced and overrated. Sunset drinks work perfectly though!

Beautiful view from the terrace, actually connected to a nice lookout in the way up to Sao Jorge castle from Baixa Chiado. View more limited from the inside. Food mostly unremarkable. Slow service.

"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake

earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
