Very sweet dessert served with a delicate attention. The place is well decorated with a lot of books and games for your children.

To be honest, this is the crappiest service I have encountered in Portugal. And that is a lot to say. They had around 10 customers aside of myself. And still took 25 minutes for a tapa. Food was good. The waitress was a pain. I...More

Tucked away behind the cathedral at Se, this is a great find for a bite to eat. The elderflower lemonade is ace on a hot day.

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
