Straightforward Portuguese specialties at a slightly above average price. Tasty, but not spectacular. Although it's customary, the plastic wrapped appetizers (bread and a selection of cheeses come at an extra price and without an explanation.

We found this restaurant while looking for another one. The ambiance looked really good and the plates being served looked very appetizing so we went in and glad we did. Food was excellent and reasonably priced.

Limited menu, good wines, agin very busy so staff were always rushed resulting in average service. Food was very tasted and well coked, could have been seasoned more. Watch out for the cover charge, cheese bread olives are 4-10 euros. If you don't have them there is a tendency to still charge you so check your bill. This goes for... More

The restaurant seemed fancy to me at first, the music and atmosphere was good. Unfortunately, it's very overpriced - food is no better than average. At the end, to my surprise, I found out that this "fancy" restaurant does not accept credit cards. Overally, big disappointment.

...but she isn't able to raise the quality of the food. The starters are wrapped in plastic, which is really appalling, so we didn't eat it. Cars passing the open door fill the room with exhaust fumes as the room is slightly below street level. My steak was medium as ordered, but the quality was really poor especially the sauce.... More

This is a place with no kitchen execept a microwave oven and some powder. The atmosphere is nice. The food not a reason to come back.

We really enjoy eating in this cozy restaurant. My burger was excellently cooked and the pasta of my girlfriend was perfect. However, the extra's that are being put on the table really annoyed me.. A small scale of butter, cheese and olives which costed around 8 euros which is obviously ridiculous. Although we did not eat it and were not... More

Way overpriced for the quality (food and service) offered. Touristy that's all. Don't know how it keeps getting TripAdvisor tickets on its door.

Been before several times, and cannot fathom the negative reviews this place gets. The place was packed when we got there, with everyone arriving at the same time. But they coped well in a small kitchen. The food is consistently excellent, the pork with lemon and spicy roast chicken are particularly good along with the cod soufflé (way better than... More

The food and the wine were just ok, my cod a lagareira was a bit dry. The bad thing was that after we finished our meals, because they do not take credit cards, I had to go for a long walk to find a cash machine and that really disappointed us. That was inconvenient and therefore I think the service... More
