Visited here with a party of 13 while we waited for our evening flight. Lots of different dishes ordered. Generally regarded as satisfactory. My dish (sea bass) came as fillets - I was expecting a whole fish. The boiled potatoes were overdone. Not my personal...More

I stopped here after a hot day of walking around and got the happy hour special. I suggest the vodka sunrise, very refreshing on a hot day. Wait staff friendly and efficient.

This place is very centrally located in a popular attraction scene in Lisbon. We stopped here in a hot day with our group and had ice cold "super bock".The food was nice.

It's quite expensive but very nice! We had a very good bruschetta but the sangria was quite bad...and is very strange here in Portugal. The place is very cool with nice music and staff. If you don't have too much expectations is worth going there

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

Conserves have always been around. But there is one small group of them (and one that it is worth getting to know) that resides at the margins of Lisbon's Terreiro do Paço – or, more precisely, at the Can the Can restaurant. This is a place where Portuguese canned and fresh foods meet every day and where, at the hands of chef Akis Konstantinidis, they combine to create a new concept in Mediterranean cuisine.Various typically Portuguese products are on show here, such as, for example, the best Port wines. And if you find that you like them as much as we think you may, you can always take them with you, too, courtesy of our first-floor store.On top of all this, we believe that if we sometimes eat with our eyes, then our ears can also help us to savour the best flavours. That's why you will find your meal accompanied by Portuguese guitar music every afternoon on the terrace and, in the evenings, by unique kinds of Fado. Our FadoLab project is the place where the Fado of yesteryear meets and is rejuvenated by Fado styles of today in a musical atmosphere free of grand ceremony or rules of behaviour.With all this in mind, we wish to say no more than our door is always open and no-one needs to ask in advance if they may enter. You'll find us here at your disposal.
