Best for Families - Expert review of Bon Jardim
A real local favourite, this is the best place in Lisbon’s city-centre to experience a genuine taste of Portuguese dining.
Easy and unfussy is the theme here. There are steak and fish dishes on the menu but everyone has the chicken and chips. The finger-licking and delicious national dish is simply served whole or halved, with crispy, chilli-coved skin, chips and a fresh salad of tomato, onion and lettuce, that’s all dolloped with glugs of olive oil.
Umm, did I mention the chicken? The best way to eat it is with your hands while loudly scoffing at the football on the telly.
Very laidback. Families and close friends come to eat rather than socialise, with most people glued to the TV.
The plump, moustachioed waiters who have been working here for decades are as charming as they are cheery.
Just down one of Rossio’s cobbled allyways.
Depending on how many beers I have here, I usually spend between 10–15 euros.
If you don’t want to be disturbed by the football on the TV, take one of the outside tables.
