Great service. Our waiter did not speak English. He really tried to communicate and without an attitude. Very classy and professional. He gave us some Port wine and cherry liquor as a souvenir. Atmosphere seemed possibly outdated yet authentic Portuguese. Food was good. The veal was a little tough but the mushroom wine sauce was delicious! Little expensive. They will... More

Decent wine and lovely people, with a great sense of humour - and kindness itself, with cherry brandy given to us to round off the evening. The trouble was - an inedible beef steak, indifferent dishes in general, and just a hint of utter loss of plot about ordering, sequencing dishes, etc.

This restaurant is popular with the locals and as soon as you walk in the door you can feel the history of a local treasure. The food is great and the servers are all men who have been doing this for years and clearly take pride in their work. The Veal Madeira, Leg of Lamb, and Chicken Casserole were all... More

Dined here with friends and enjoyed the unique ambiance and service. Was seated in a private room and our food was served without delay. The grilled salmon was tasty and enjoy able and served with potatoe and rice.

I had a great ox tail but my wife's duck was very overcooked. Nice atmosphere inside with a friendly owner who insisted that we try his special porto and aguardiente on the house. They all have grilled fish, goat etc. Give it a try.

We had been walking the streets of Lisbon very late when by sheer miracle the owner of Grand'Elias happily took us in. He was about to send his poor staff home at the end of a long day and he let in 8 very desperate travellers. The service, food and atmosphere were incredible. There's no way we could of found...

They welcomed us although it was late at night. We had a sperate dining area. The food was okay. The waiters were very attentive. They brought over too trays of port and we left not feeling shortchanged.

We were actually looking for a different restaurant this day, but as it was closed we had to find an alternative. As we were a little lost we went by a hotel to ask for recommendations of good restaurants. THIS was where we were recommended to eat "local portuguese food", unfortunately. The place in itself was in a basement, it... More

This was a very busy restaurant apparently popular with the locals. We were disappointed with the fare, the service and the price. My wife's curried chicken was bland and uninteresting to someone who had lived in Bangladesh and eaten in many good Indian restaurants. I ordered tongue and was served something other than that. When I questioned our waiter about... More

A few years ago this restaurant was a great option to eat regional food. The space is exactly the same but the food brightness has gone ... The staff is still firendly but the "products" are quite poor. Last week went there with some friends and ate a stewed "pork shank" ... terrible. We paid 18 € for usual starters... More
