Fodor's Expert Review Bota Alta
This brilliant blue taverna is one of the Bairro Alto's oldest and most popular—lines form outside early in the evening and diners are packed in like sardines until late at night. The busy atmosphere is part of the charm, and the menu is strong on traditional Portuguese dishes like grilled salmon that are best washed down with a carafe of house wine.
