- inigo gPortugese food is known to be excellent but in this restaurant is something else! There are plenty of options in the menu, the staff is really friendly and speak good English. Quality price relation couldn’t be better! The place keeps a real Portuguese atmosphere which makes it really cozy and charming. We had a really pleasant experience. A great and yummy ending after a long day walking up and down beautiful Lisbon.
- Fabrice BWonderful experience ! True high quality traditional Portuguese food, couldn’t find a better place all week despite trying many other restaurant. Extremely good starter, bacalhau was brilliant (one of the best I ever had), octopus as well. Dessert trolley super appealing too. Owner is extremely nice, I didn’t feel welcome this way for a long time. Booking is advised, we were lucky to get a table as there was a big group last minute cancellation.
- Mike PExcellent place for real Portuguese food. We were a party of 7 and the service was great. Wait staff spoke English and were eager to answer our questions. Dessert cart was absolutely wonderful.
Old Ladies «As Velhas» from the countryside settled here in 1925 to cook homemade meals. The clients were attended only by waitresses who served stewed dishes, in the pan.
Those days the street looked like a village, where peasants of the surroundings sold vegetables and fruits while their traction donkeys were bent over its own straw bundle.
With time, the neighborhood becomes the center of theaters, games and popular fairs, especially in the near Parque Mayer, attracting the bohemians and revelers.
In the same family for nearly four decades, As
Velhas Restaurant continue serving timeless recipes to the lovers of portuguese
cuisine, in honor of the Old Ladies.
