The highlight of the meal was the owner's hospitality. He explained the details of the food to us and helped us pick local beers that we would enjoy. The restaurant serves a mix of meats, cheeses, and small plates of Portuguese food prepared by the...More

Hard to find. Need a reservation. Very small and in a residential neighborhood. However the food was excellent. We had the grilled chorizo, shrimp, and beef. Absolutely delicious with sufficient quantity and reasonable price. Have a glass of the tawny port after. It was very...More

One of my favorite meals in Lisbon. Skip lunch so that you can try as many dishes as you can. Definitely make a reservation as this restaurant does not have a lot of seating.

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we went at the beginning and end of our stay in Lisbon. Tucked out of the way on a quiet street, the location is only second to the tremendous food. Start your meal with a glass of dry white...More

This is a very small restaurant, which was close to our AIRBNB. Reservations are a must. We had a cheese plate, garlic shrimp and a mushroom dish. Wines were nice, and the owner had us try them first. We got great service, and were offered...More

Found this place based on TA reviews, called and got the last seat in the restaurant for that evening. Definitely book if you want to come here - it's very small, and while we ate, we saw at least 10-15 turned away. Excellent tapas -...More

During our week stay in Portugal we had some fantastic dining experiences. Cantinho Lusitano stands out as one of the bests. It was our last night in Lisbon and it was 100 degrees all day. As luck would have it Cantinho Lusitano does not have...More

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center

My boyfriend and I visited in May and we walked everywhere and found Lisbon to be very safe. The only thing is it's very hilly and there are a lot of small streets that you can get lost in.

I contacted them via their Facebook page and was able to book a table for 10. Just had to fit the time around them. Definitely the best meal of the trip and such a lovely couple.
