Why locals love it

When Lisboans are in a hurry and don’t have time to have lunch, this is the place. They will ask for one or two Pastel de Bacalhau (which is something like a codfish cake) and a glass of red house wine or a beer.

Why you should visit it

This is a very typical Portuguese place, a Fado song says that all the artists and Fado singers come here for a drink. It was founded in 1840, being one of the oldest places in Lisbon; however the interior is no longer the original due to some works.

Special tip

To eat, you also have bifanas, which is a sandwich with pork meat; and other petiscos (snacks) like croquettes and patty shrimp.
