What an experience! This was our best meal in Lisbon. The food was excellent - very tasty and full of flavour. The wine was perfect. The waiter was very attentive and there was a lovely cosy atmosphere. Would really recommend but you must book, as it is a small place!

Excellent family restaurant off the beaten track. We visited with two other couples and tried most tapas dishes. All the food was great with a good atmosphere and the best value for money we found in Lisbon. Highly recommended.

The best meal we had in Lisbon! This place serves wonderful tapas! Everything we ordered was delicious! This restaurant is very small, and dinner reservations are required. When we arrived in Lisbon we walked to the restaurant and made a reservation in person for 2 nights later. It was totally worth the wait and we highly recommend this place.

I found Cantinho Lusitano through TripAdvisor - I'd been for beers at Cerveteca Lisboa nearby and wanted to find dinner nearby, and saw it was highly praised on TripAdvisor. It is very well deserved! It's a tiny little restaurant, and I was lucky in that they had one little table left near the back. The food is tapas style small... More

Not easy to find, but enjoyed the walk. Wonderful meal and experience shared with friends. Lovely host, who explained each dish. Best meal we had in Lisbon and also the least expensive.

On the strength of the reviews, we decided to try this restaurant out. We booked via email before a week before we went and luckily we did, as people were being turned away as it only has 20 seats. We tried the beef dish Pica Pau, garlic shrimps, fava beans, and some cheese as well as the lemon tart for... More

Staying in Principe Real

Neighbourhood Profile
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 with its cafes, art galleries and luxury shops... and even if you don't buy anything, take a look inside just for its marvellous interiors. On top of this, Príncipe Real offers a variety of places to eat: if you're in a hurry, drop by "Pizza a Pezzi"; and if you're not, taste the delicious Honorato hamburgers, Argentinian cuisine at La Paparrucha and also great, delicious Portuguese food at Tascardoso!
