This restaurant was recommended by a Portuguese friend. The best dinner I had in Portugal. The scallop starter is fantastic; they also have a great wine list, and service is very good.

Absolutely loved sitting outside at this lovely restaurant, great atmosphere and amazing food. It's some time ago now but We had the daily menu which was incredibly good. I'll never forget the tasty fish dish I had - it was amazing! Definitely a place to visit when you're in Lisbon and are in for a treat

Well, karma was way off with this place. The food was pretty good and kitchen was very accommodating but the service was at best disjointed. For restaurant that specialized in fish, they had no sushi that evening. What with that? I had the scallops and the shrimp tempura. Tasty. My wife had the mushroom and asparagus risotto which was very... More

Location isn't easy to see. We have walking around for over half an hour to find the restaurant. Didn't like that they put us to sit in the bar and wait for the table even the restaurant is almost empty. The bar tender he talk to other people while he's making drink. So what is the point of staying there... More

Had a small celebration there during lunch. Service was little slow for a that time period. Staff knows every small detail about food so, didn't get lost. Food is good. Portions are big and well done. View to the sea is so beautiful. Atmosphere is elegant.

Booked in advance, read all the reviews on line, so expected this place to be busy late on a Friday night. We arrived just before 11pm and had delicious food upstairs at the sushi bar. Premises is cool, DJ and dance area on ground floor with good cocktails but unfortunately very few customers...so it was all a bit quiet.

As it was raining when we went there, we ate inside. I am sure it would have been spectacular to dine outside. It is a modern sleek restaurant. We all had seafood which was delicious, and the wine was good. I recommend the restaurant.

Quite exquisite restaurant with good decoration, service, and food. On top of this you have the river just on your side which makes everything different. The food is very good, with some gourmet style and service is always looking at where they can assist you. If you have a medium/large number of guests and have not selected a fixed menu... More

Having read other reviews, I was rather hesitant to have a meal here. However, the thought of lovely evening lights shining onto the river front won me over. Well, that was a non-starter! The river is pitch black - couldn't see any sign of it, and no lights out over it at all. Complete waste of time coming here in... More

I have to start with the architecture of this place. Placed right in front of the river Tagus, this building is part of a row of alike buildings that are located on the port of Lisbon area. once you get in by a discreet but mighty entrance, on your left you'll find a set of stairs that'll take you to...

Staying in Graca & Sao Vicente

Neighbourhood Profile
Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.
