Interesting that people love this so much. I actually can't rate the food or drinks because we weren't served any. We visited at lunchtime on a recent Saturday. The few parties that arrived to dine all had to request menus, as did we. The fare seemed comparatively expensive and uninteresting, but we would have consumed some had any been offered.... More

The terrace can get very busy, as it's obviously on the tourist map now. But mid afternoon is a good time to visit. The staff can be difficult, as they've been programmed that tables and chairs can't be moved. They are also quite slow.. But worth a visit if you're in the area.

On top of the lovely Hotel do Bairro Alto, there is the terrace bar with amazing views on the Tagus and some old arts of the city.Service is friendly but a bit slow. Wonderful place to have a drink at the sunset

We went for lunch. Food was quite nice but it was so hot on the terrace. The is a building site and crane in action directly between hotel and view! We found that OK because the safety standards were less optimal than in australia so gave us something interesting (if not scary) to look at. Prices are quite expensive for... More

We stayed at the hotel and had drinks here one afternoon. Although it was very hot outside, they terrace has misters, so sitting outside was pleasant. An added interesting detail is watching the cranes right outside as they build an extension to the hotel!

After a long, hot day of touring Lisbon, we stopped at Terraço Bairro Alto on the 6th floor to enjoy some cold drinks. We ordered sangria and it was probably the best I've ever had. The other cocktails on the menu were over-priced, the service is also a bit slow. Overall, nice place to sit down and relax while over-looking... More

Stopped for quick a drink which ended being a long stop due to very slow service! Views are worth it though with great panoramic view of Lisbon and the coast

We were visiting Lisbon and we knew that the Hotel had this nice rooftop terrace were you can have a quick bite , nothing fancy ( sandwich , salad , hamburger ecc. ) so we decided to give it a try. To go there you need to enter into the Hotel Barrio Alto and take the lift to the 6th... More

Come alone or with friends, for a meal, a snack or a drink, or even to simply relax and enjoy a good book on one of the comfy chaise longues, which invite you to do nothing at all...to the tune of good "chill-out" music.

The atmosphere on the terrace could not be more relaxed and the menu presents suggestions for all type of meals, though varies through the seasons. Count on light options, from salads to sandwiches, including the famous BA Ceasar Salad. Accompany your choice with the well-known ice juices, mojitos or BA's iced tea.
