We just loved our dinner at this tiny restaurant near the cruise terminal. The meal is served tapas style. We ordered a wide variety of dishes and each one was better than the last. My personal favorite was the sardines: so flavorful and savory. My friends preferred the mushroom dish. The cheerful and friendly server picked everything for us and his selections were on point. The wine and beer options were varied and also tasty. I highly recommend taking the time to find this needle in a haystack.

The food at the Agulha No Palherio restaurant was truly fantastic. We had four dishes - each had a great taste, was beautifully presented and filling.

You may easily walk past this restaurant as it has no name on the outside -- but check it out. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

We had read the great reviews but, nonetheless, this restaurant still exceeded our expectations. The ambience, the friendly staff, the imaginative menu and, above all, the quality of the food, makes Agulha No Palheiro the best restaurant we have eaten in on this vacation in Lisbon.

We stumbled on this restaurant by accident. It's kind of off the beaten path, but it was one of the best meals we had in Lisbon. It's a small restaurant that you might miss if you're not looking for it, but the food was amazing!! Really creative and delicious dishes. Great wines and amazing service! It's a little far from the touristy sections of Lisbon, but that's why it's so good! Do yourself a favor and stay away from the restaurants with pictures of the food on the menu. That's a sure sign of a mediocre meal. If you want to have a great meal and get a local feel, find this place and thank me later!
