Really nice meal in a lovely, quiet setting. Very good English speaking waiter. Grilled squid drenched in garlic was fabulous and the seafood and rice pot also great. Hard to find in small Alfama lane but worth the hunt.

Very fresh and excellent seafood. Quite big part of grilled calamari or grilled cuttlefish for about 10€. With a small effort on this service it would be perfect.

We stayed in Alfama district which is packed with small little restaurants and fado performances that, at times, feel a little too much. The hospitality of Portuguese food industry is not always as welcoming as I have expected (being heavily visited by tourists). Cultural expectations,...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
Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
