Really great food in a nice atmosphere. Great service. Beware the size of portions which are large! My favourite was the Baked Cheese starter. Mid-range prices. Good location. Highly recommended.

Enjoy a cocktail, discover a jazz club, hit the dance
floor or simply grab a beer and catch up with your
friends in the street: Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do
Sodré are the core of it all. Amazing rooftops,
restaurants, cafes, bars, art galleries, museums and
