I have never really liked cod, but as it is a traditional dish in Lisbon I thought I could not leave without trying some. Well... I ended up finishing it all! It is a very cosy restaurant, with great prices and a lot of choice...More
Our family had delicious dinner at Velho Macedo. We didn’t have reservation but the owner was kind enough to find us a table. Luckily we arrived just after opening at 7pm. This is a relatively small restaurant so reservation is recommended. Food was delicious and...More
The owner/waiter is a rather unfriendly person, the waitress was pleasant. Delivered to our table were olives, bread, cheese and water. We said we did not want the cheese or water but they appeared on our bill even though they were removed from our table....More
During our stay in Lisbon we ate here twice. The waiter always seems a bit harassed but the young lady is very friendly and speaks English. For a small restaurant away from the tourist strip, it is very busy. Make a reservation or get there...More
This restaurant is a favorite amongst locals and turists. The food is made with love, soul and pride. It's a treasure in Baixa of Lisbon. It's so hard to find a place like that in the city, that you all should be grateful for its...More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the
imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
