Tourists don't come to Portugal to eat this. There was more egg shell in the eggs than I would have expected, and the croissant is far from authentic. The coffee is fine ... but simply try elsewhere.

This is a sit or sit out restaurant, great for chilling out on a warm day. Plenty of outside seats with sun or shade. Bottle of Rose and watch Lisbon go bye! Tuna salad to share was huge with plenty of tuna and fresh roles. Well it is a bakery also with the Best Pastel de Nata's in Lisbon. Gorgeous👍

Lisbon is a place where restaurants are everywhere but it is hard to find a place where food is really good. We have read some reviews and people were saying not to eat in the touristic area because food is bad and prices are very high. Here, we found perfect meat, perfect gaspacho soup,fresh fish and wonderful natural strawberry juice!... More

Sit in tables in the cobble stone streets of downtown Lisbon. Take the Metro to the Baxia station and walk towards the Castle of St. George. You'll find this café among a long row of others to choose from. We enjoyed it and loved the prices that we ate there twice during our visit to Lisbon.

Went there for a cup of coffee and some dessert. We had some good service when we were finally noticed. Decent ambience and can get a bit busy. The coffee itself was very good. Credit cards accepted.

For 3 courses for two of us with wine a very reasonable 50 euros, I would gladly recommend this restaurant to any one who... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
