Found this on the way to the castle. Sun had just come out and cafe was a sun trap. Sat here for a couple of beers to make the most of it being out. Good place to people watch. Service was very good, as the owner was very friendly and liked the way we tried to speak Portuguese.

Great location right next to Castelo. Charming small restaurant with friendly service. Unfortunately, our food wasn't very good. The bacalao was smothered in a tasteless sauce. We wanted this to be good but it wasn't.

Walked up the hill to the Castle, this place appeared just at the right time. A seat outside in the sun and a couple of drinks is just what we needed before tackling the castle.

We booked here as we were stating very locally and usually TripAdvisor is reliable for recommendations. Not this time for this couple. The menu looked interesting and the restaurant is attractive (very small) and homely. However both of our meals were pretty tasteless dishes (one cod and the other monkfish) and someone would have to work very hard to convince... More

My daughter and I ate dinner here one evening during our stay in Lisbon because it was very near our hotel. We did not book but were there at 6 p.m. when they opened and had no difficulty with a table - there is only room to seat 12 people and it is not possible to change the layout to... More

We enjoyed our dinner in this restaurant. We tried the bacalhau and it was tasty. Desserts were ok. Nice wines. Very pleasant ambiance and excellent service (in Portuguese, English and French). Very small restaurant, you might want to book in beforehand.

Located just beside the caste entrance this tiny restaurant offers simple portuguese dishes freshly made every day. Only 12 sets so come early.

This small place seems to be fully reserved/booked every night, but it only has about 12 seats inside. Perhaps they have some outdoor seating in summer time. Best way to make a reservation is to walk by earlier in the day and just ask. Food is tasty with a selection of very different options. Seating is quite cramped, but the... More

Clara's was something we found on the web before travelling and was also a recommendation from our hotel. It is very small, only six double tables but the food is terrific. It is mainly a fish restaurant when it comes to main courses but you will find one or two meat options. Service was very good and very friendly. The... More

Very tasty chicken with honey and orange served with potato and mushrooms but salmon in Port served with veg from a frozen mix! Service was patchy with waiter who was forgetful and seemed distracted. Bill for 2 white port aperitif, starters, mains, desserts and bottle of wine €77. Tables are very close together in the tiny restaurant and lighting quite... More

Staying in Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria

Neighbourhood Profile
Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and, 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 Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of Fado, where you'll discover the best "tascas," eat delicious fresh fish and drink great wines. Discover hidden viewpoints and ancient traces of other civilizational ruins in the heart of the Portuguese capital. These are centuries-old neighborhoods that will welcome you to the very best of old Lisbon culture.
