Stop do Barrio (Lisbon): new premises – just as good as before

Stop do Bairro's still quite small dining room 

Last night we ate (two of us) at Stop do Bairro's new premises in Campolide where they have moved from their old cramped premises in Campo d'Ourique. 

The new premises are much more airy and modern but still quite a limited number of covers. At a guess not more than 40-50.

The ambiance remains friendly and welcoming with the food as generous, copious and tasty as before. 

We started with one of Stop do Bairro's classics – black pudding with slightly warmed pineapple – a brilliant combination that works so well.   

For our main courses – amazingly copious – we chose veal escalopes with mushrooms and grilled rabbit. To drink we chose a 2015 Reserva Arribas do Pinhão from the Douro, which was very good.As far as the list was concerned I flew blind as there were very few names on it that I recognised. Anyway we we were very happy with our choice, although we had to ask for it to be chiiled down slightly – not at all a problem. This is a blend of Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz.

It was all very good and we managed to eat most of it but we left the restaurant rather stuffed.

Stop do Barrio is definitely recommended not only is the food good but it is also relaxed and friendly.
