Believe it or not, this restaurant used to be a hunting lodge despite the fact that it's located in the centre of Lisbon. Inside, the rustic décor gives the game away. The dark wood beam ceiling and wall supports are original, and the framed prints of duck, geese and wild boar highlight the pastoral appeal. During the day, this is a prime business lunch spot. But "33", named after its street number, comes into its own at night, especially when candlelight illuminates the sunken garden where tables are set under a leafy canopy. The menu errs towards meat and game (try the rosbife - roast beef which comes rare and practically melts in your mouth). Meals are presented in a simple manner and served by seriously friendly waiting staff. The wines live up to their promise, with some fine labels from the Douro and Alentejo among the modest selection.

- Avenida Liberdade/Marques de Pombal/Estefânia's Best Restaurants: "Order the Sopa Dourada, which isn't a soup at all. Instead, it's a fantastic sweet dish of egg strands and caramel."
- Best for Avenida Liberdade/Marques de Pombal/Estefânia's Best Restaurants Because: Quite simply the most unique setting of all Lisbon's city-centre restaurants, this former hunting lodge still has the iron horse rings embedded in the walls.
