Great location in the park and really enjoyed my ice coffee, it was delicious. However, the prices are much too high, some of the highest I've seen in Lisbon. The staff didn't seem that interested either.

We got to Esplanada Café totally by chance while wondering the streets of Lisbon in the afternoon. It is located in a very charming park. It is quiet and has a great atmosphere. Not touristy at all, which is great. The servers are friendly and...More

Rather quiet and calm on a beginning of february, but definitely a place worth visiting. Not far away from intersting places to visit in Lisbon, like f.e. Bairro Alto, Rato, Chiado, Santa Catarina or Baixa. Some nice bars and stores in the surroundings.

We've stopped here at least a dozen times over the past couple of years, probably every time we happen to be near Principe Real in fact. It's just a great place to chill and have a light lunch or even just a beer or coffee....More

The Good: Great location, decent coffee (we both had an iced coffee), and the prices are fair (FYI it is cash only). The Bad: The staff was not friendly or helpful--felt like they were annoyed by our very presence. Also the service was very slow.

The food is good but the service is below everything. We started enquirering about our meals 45 minute after the order was taken. The waiter told us he was going to check. Never came back 15 minute later we asked again and we're told he...More

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
