Based on Trip Advisor reviews I chose this as my first place for dinner in Lisbon. What a mistake! Though the garden patio was a nice place to dine on a beautiful evening, the food was really mediocre. I had the beef steak and found...More

We went there with our two kids, 6y and 10m. It was a great experience. The food was nothing what we expected but a lot better. I ate vege-burger, which looked boring but tasted heavenly. My son ate fish and it tasted so good that...More

Fabulas (tales) has been one of my favorite tables in lisbon. Because you actually feel inside a sweet and old charming tale, may it be because of the cavish style, the wooden grandma house tables, the chandeliers taken out of a film and the books...More

Chiado & Carmo
The traditionally trendy "Chiado" (literally,
"squeak", the nickname of a 16th century poet) offers
plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can
stop for a cafe or cocktail, after exploring its
streets, shops, art galleries, theaters, museums and
viewpoints. It's also the home to the statue of the
famous statue of portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa,
having is usual espresso at "A Brasileira" as he used
