    Finding this place was not easy, our first cab driver dropped us nowhere near it, but luckily or second cabbie knew where to go.

    The building used to be a convent and this makes this one of the most atmospheric restaurants I have eaten in. There are a at least three dining areas; the main room room, a small side room and small terrace in the old courtyard.

    Before you order they do provide you with some small hor dourves which turned out to be the best part of the meal; the fried cheese and pork being superb. The main course of monk fish casserole was frankly a bit of a let down.

    Favorite Dish: The tapas/hor dourves.

    This restaurant is a hot spot in the Lisboa night and it was built recovering a XV century convent. The main room is very beautifull, it has a lot of windows to the cloister. Lots of beautifull people there.
    The only con is the lack of a parking area - so don't go driving, instead use a taxi.

    Favorite Dish: This is a Belgium restaurant. I would suggest you to try the oysters. It has a very good wine brands. The desserts are nice too.

    'A Travessa' is an excellent choice for those who like both international and portuguese cuisine. You'll also find an excellent choice of wines and outstanding service.
    The restaurant is in the border of one of Lisbon's traditional districts(Madragoa). They also have a bar right next to the restaurant where you can have an appetizer while waiting for your table.
