Fodor's Expert Review Bota Alta

$ Chiado and Bairro Alto Portuguese

This wood-paneled tavern is one of the Bairro Alto's oldest and most popular—lines form outside by 8 pm. There's little space between the tables, but this only enhances the buzz. Once you've secured a seat, choose from a menu strong on traditional Portuguese dishes—perhaps bacalhau à bras (shredded, with onions and matchstick fried potatoes in scrambled egg), carne de porco à alentejana (pork with clams), steaks in wine sauce, or grilled fish. Come hungry: portions are huge. The house wine comes in ceramic jugs and is both very affordable and very good.
