This place caught our eye for the seating available on the street steps and the delicious smell of smokey tapas. A great place for people watching and appreciating passing buskers.

Try it for yourselves...! The menu is so extensive we went twice during our stay in Lisbon. The atmosphere sat outside whether on cushions on the steps or the little tables is very relaxed. I would recommend the chorizo tortilla and the garlic mushrooms.

At the first look the interior looks nice but the food Is super overpriced and average, expect to pay 8 to 9 euro for tapas wich is the same price of top end restaurant in Lisbon ,simply DON'T GO THERE.
