Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A great restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. Pablo was an incredible waiter, extremely friendly and welcoming and gave us some good tips for Lisbon! Will definitely return again.

The service, or actually one lady who managed the team (07/14/2022 at 10:00), acted disrespectfully in relation to our entire group. She was rude, rude, unprofessional. She completely ignored requests for a table to be prepared. Such people should look for work in a place...where there is limited contact with people. I strongly advise against this place due to the lack of respect for the customer.More

Best pastel de nata I had in Portugal! I went back for another later in the trip! The cafe itself is beautiful inside, but it can get very busy. We were lucky to get seats outside on our first visit, but on the second visit,...we needed our natas to-go. Just know in advance that you may not get a table!More

We stumbled in to A Brasileria when the pub we were headed to was closed- inexplicably! What a lucky happenstance! Indoor and Outdoor seating in the Barrio Alto neighborhood had a very fun vibe! The restaurant is one of Lisbons oldest, and is architecturally beautiful...as well as furnished in a timeless elegance. The menu had something for everyone- I enjoyed the ahi style tuna ( Tataki de Atum)- which was perfect. Others enjoyed the steak with the coffee sauce! The Charcuterie board was generous, with yummy cheeses. I enjoyed a light white wine- the house wines were delish! The service was very good, unhurried. We shared dessert-Rabanada de Brasilera- yum. The restaurant is hundreds of years old- sells reprints of an award winning book of Portugese poetry. And don't forget to grab some delicious coffee! Dress is casual, to dressy casual- prices $$$- worth itMore

The place is nice because you can take beautiful pictures. The food is average. The prices are high compared to other places nearby. And the stuff is not really friendly - even if you are fluent in Portuguese. I wouldn’t recommend it. Take your pictures...there and have your Pastell at another place.More

Had a wonderful experience watching street performers is Chiado square while the adults sipped good wine and the kids had delicious poached pear and gelato. Pablo was great, he moved tables for our group of 8 and provided excellent service. Relatively expensive but a good...vibe and great service tonight.More

A quaint place for food and drink. It has a good history regarding Mr Pessoa and he liked it so much he is still sitting outside. Apart from that the food is very good and I enjoyed a decent café latte here. Service is efficient.

A unique place that is a must go in Lisbon. The coffee and the custard tart are just perfect. They also sell the book from Fernando Pessoa which is a very good plus on their service and offer.
