I adored the Brasileira when I first came here, more decades ago than I care to remember. Dropped in yesterday evening (on an enforced one-night stopover in Lisbon) and was horrified at the changes. Not in the café: it's as beautiful as ever, and the...More

We had an evening meal in the downstairs restaurant - with a wait of over 45 minutes for our food. Several other would-be diners didn't last that long and headed elsewhere. When the food arrived it was fine: but the long wait spoiled an otherwise...More

What else can you do on a wet Sunday in Lisbon? Sat outside under the large umbrellas, listening to lovely Portuguese buskers, drinking coffee, pastel del natas and a superbock. Watched everyone else get wet!

It's a great location with ok breakfast and incredible pastries. It's always very full and the service a bit slow. Whatever the service may be it's a place to experience. Must try the Bolo de Arroz, a house specialty.

The dish we ordered was delicious and recommend by the waiter, who was really attentive. The price is good and mainly because of its location.

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
