    A really nice establishment with a great view. Staff was nice and well spoken in English. Would recommend for anyone to visit it to enjoy a nice Portuguese meal.

    Restaurant was recommended by the hotel. We enjoyed the fish cataplana and the service was really good, but we felt that it was slightly overpriced compared with other restaurants we visited, perhaps as it is in a more prominently touristy area?

    The food, wine and ambience were excellent. The service was mixed. The restaurant was filled with locals and had a great energy. We highly recommend.

    We had been here about 10 years ago and my husband lived the pork and clams... so looked for it..found it and booked. However we were SO disappointed. Our strarter of black pudding wasnt good. The pork and clams had very little sauce and huge chunks of pork were chewy. Mt steak was smotered in a luke watm sauce and chips were tepid and not made from fresh potatoes. Our bottle of white wine came with no ice bucket and despite asking we only got a cover for it...not and iced packed one. We were sat in a pokey corner in a sub room. We feel it was because we had booked through thr Fork that we did not receive the same service nor quality of food as other guests. So sadly..we left hugely disappointed in what was supposed to be a memorable last night of our holidau.

    Lovely place but with a good atmosphere and welcoming staff. My wife and I had the pork and seafood stew in a copper pot which is a sharing dish for two people. Unfortunately, the food was too salty and the prawns over cooked.

    Food was pedestrian, at best. Service and atmosphere were just fine.

    The food was very average. The sauce in our fish stew lacked flavour. When the waiter asked us half way though the meal how it was and we said it wasn’t great, he just ignored us. The house wine was poor. The staff weren’t the most friendly. The meal cost us €60 and was the worst and most expensive meal of our holiday.

    This is a terrific restaurant. Excellent food and service. Many Americans and Brits seem to have found it on Trip Advisor and it really is a good dining experience.

    Great experience tonight with wonderful food and service. We were looking for traditional cuisine and setting and Farol is certainly the perfect fit

    Overall a good restaurant as the food, service and ambiance are above par. The appetizers and entrees are well portioned and tasty, the service is attentive and a quaint dining area provides a nice setting to enjoy your meal. Our group of seven enjoyed mussels, octopus salad and a charcuterie board for appetizers followed by entrees ranging from grilled octopus to the stews for two cooked in copper pots. While the food was good, there was nothing spectacular about any of the dishes. You won’t leave hungry but I don’t know that there was anything memorable enough for me to call this a “must return to” place.

    Great find in the Alfama district of Lisboa. Excellent food and attentive service. The place can be noisy as it fills rapidly. Don’t forget to make a reservation for dinner or you won’t get in

    We went to this restaurant looking for some authentic Portuguese food after arriving in Lisbon the day after our engagement. Food and wine was delicious, service was amazing, and prices were very reasonable. We would absolutely go back here anytime.

    A great experience. The food was delicious and the service was great. If you could also serve wine in glasses and not only bottles it would be perfect.

About the restaurant

Truly Portuguese, the Farol de Santa luzia is open since 1974, between Alfama and the Castle right in front of viewpoint of Santa Luzia. This is a cozy and traditional space with rustic look, which serves the main dishes of traditional Portuguese cuisine. Housed in a building dating from the eighteenth century, it preserves the aura that gives charisma to the restaurant.
