From the old days as student, I kept the idea that the restaurants in Roma avenue where expensive and... bad. For more than thirty years I skipped them.
Recently, I had something to do in the area,... more
The service was abysmal! The restaurant counts on its historic past to keep people coming in the door. They must realize that many are tourists and the staff feels comfortable speaking in abusive ways... more
The Nicola is a traditional Lisbon café in a great location on the west side of Rossio. It opened in 1929 and was one of Lisbon's literary and political meeting points. It still has a lovely art deco... more
Forty five years ago, I found a restaurant in Lisbon with a special steak, swimming in an exclusive and delicious sauce. Though ninety per cent of the costumers eat seafood with beer, I always keep... more
I liked the place and its ambiance. It seems like nice local youth is coming here to meet and eat. If you go early around 6 pm , you can find a good table by the view. We ordered Fondue for 2 and a... more

Wonderful restaurant, easy to find. Great food, nice prices. We found it by accident because our favourite restaurant was closed but never regretted it. Next time it's gonna be hard to choose because... more

Olivier's is something special. Its not cheap but then with 5 cold starters and 5 hot starters plus a main course it wouldnt be. Its 35euros in fact with drinks aextra and dessert another 6euros, but... more
This is a very classy restaurant: the staff switched effortlessly from Portugese to English and were very professional. The interior is beautiful (if not the exterior, which is a door in a wall) and... more
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... more
Lisbon or Lisboa is the largest city of Portugal. It is also the capital and has the distinction of being the westernmost capital in Europe. In 1755, the city suffered extensively under an earthquake...
Oh Lisboa, what can I say? You've won over my heart.

So, I'll definitely be back. Three times is not even...
