OK, so this restaurant is right on the plaza. It looks like it's going to be the rip off tourist restaurant with the snooty waiters and horrible food. So, why did we try it? We were starved. We had mixed up a sail boat trip...More

Contrary to other posts, I actually had a great experience at this restaurant with my wife. The service was average, waiters didn't check on us but that was fine. I had my best dish there in Lisbon - stuffed eggplant filled with vegetables and mackerel...More

The food is unpleasant, the cheers are unpleasant and I've had the worst burger in my life: old meat, one piece of old tomato, and no sauce of any kind and it comes with old potatoes.

I had the classic hamburger in the traditional Portuguese bread. The bread was cold and the meat dry. The fries were also terrible. But the worst part was that the food arrived before the drinks. And when we ordered a second beer each, they took...More

We usually avoid eating on the main squares as they are often over-priced tourist traps. Can The Can was therefore a pleasant surprise as the food was tasty (we had a fish platter), it was inventively presented and reasonably priced. Add in the location, watching...More

Visited here with a party of 13 while we waited for our evening flight. Lots of different dishes ordered. Generally regarded as satisfactory. My dish (sea bass) came as fillets - I was expecting a whole fish. The boiled potatoes were overdone. Not my personal...More

I stopped here after a hot day of walking around and got the happy hour special. I suggest the vodka sunrise, very refreshing on a hot day. Wait staff friendly and efficient.

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

Conserves have always been around. But there is one small group of them (and one that it is worth getting to know) that resides at the margins of Lisbon's Terreiro do Paço – or, more precisely, at the Can the Can restaurant. This is a place where Portuguese canned and fresh foods meet every day and where, at the hands of chef Akis Konstantinidis, they combine to create a new concept in Mediterranean cuisine.Various typically Portuguese products are on show here, such as, for example, the best Port wines. And if you find that you like them as much as we think you may, you can always take them with you, too, courtesy of our first-floor store.On top of all this, we believe that if we sometimes eat with our eyes, then our ears can also help us to savour the best flavours. That's why you will find your meal accompanied by Portuguese guitar music every afternoon on the terrace and, in the evenings, by unique kinds of Fado. Our FadoLab project is the place where the Fado of yesteryear meets and is rejuvenated by Fado styles of today in a musical atmosphere free of grand ceremony or rules of behaviour.With all this in mind, we wish to say no more than our door is always open and no-one needs to ask in advance if they may enter. You'll find us here at your disposal.
