Looking for a restaurant near our hotel that is open on Monday, we came across this nice place and were amazed at the quality of the freshly cooked fish and the very personal service. Local dishes and a feeling of being really welcome. This place should get more attention. Alas not just in the middle of the city. Many samples... More

Close to our hotel we ended up by eating here twice during our stay. The food is delicious and simple as most local dishes should be. Tender steak and tasty fish.

As always in Lisbon they bring you a few plates with cheese, olives, beens etc. by means of appetizers... More

We were in Lisbon to catch a cruise ship and happened to be there on a Monday. We walked miles, hoping to get a feel for the city in one day. It started to rain. Then it started to pour. Around seven in the evening we were starving only to find out that EVERYTHING is closed on Mondays. Every restaurant,... More
