I've been to Lisbon three times and I never miss a chance to visit this restaurant. Good food but the best thing about this place is the beautiful view of Lisbon.

This is a restaurant with many levels. Reservations are recommended for the upper level. It provides an amazing view and a romantic setting overlooking Lisbon. We sat right at the window. We had a great meal second to none while we were in Lisbon. It was a mix of tradition and nouveau cuisine. Even more amazing was the cost. It... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant after many people recommended it to us. We arrived around 9 and expected to wait but ended up being seated right away. The service was excellent and all of our food was delicious and reasonably priced. We ordered the chorizo and potatoes for an app, the roasted calf, the black ham and a... More

The staff spoke perfect English, and there were menus in English too. We ordered a speciality cocktail with the local herbal liquor and passion fruit, and it... More

Would definitely recommend a trip to this restaurant which is high on the hill offering great views. Food was great and I had some delicious roast veal. We lucked out with a table for three whilst everyone else (in couples) had to wait for a table for two. I'd recommend getting there earlier than you want to eat in case... More

Located on the hill leading up to the castle with a great view over the city - funny design. We were seated in a kind of circus tent - making it good fun. The food was good - had a selection of starters all very nice and the meat dishes delicious.

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.
