- paul hLoved this place. We were in Lisbon for 5 days, 2 short stays, and we ate there twice. Great menu, service and food. And loved having the owner come to our table to chat with us. She gave us some tips for the Algarve region which were fabulous.
- David JTo be honest, I was a bit thrown off by this place as we were greeted by a brightly lit room and no staff, but we quickly warmed up to it. It's all about family style delicious food, and an excellent wine list - even the house wines were delicious. The staff was attentive and the owner super nice interacting with every table in the dining room. Even the simplest things like the greens with chestnuts (cheapest menu item) were really well prepared and tasty. This isn't a place you'd go for a fun ambience, but rather for absolutely delicious cooking and great family-style service.
- Stephane LLoved everything, the quality of food and wine and warm welcome and great service. More of a family and local atmosphere.
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.
