Grilled fish, portugese food

Excellent grilled fish. Nice atmosphere. Also many local people eating there. Mostly meals for two people. So if you are travelling alone, maybe not the best place to go.

I really liked this small restaurant well located in Bairro Alto. The food is homemade style and is pretty good, the prices are honest and the portions are big (is one portion for two).

We went here because of a friend's recommendation. First we nearly passed the place, because it's just a tiny room at a corner in the middle of chiado.. but looking for it is truly worth it! The smaller the place, the bigger the portions. Everything comes in portions of two, so you better agree with your companion ;) We ordered... More

We echo the other rave reviews in saying that this unassuming eatery provided us with the best dinner of our 6-day visit, and we consider ourselves well-traveled diners with high standards. The grouper platter we ordered for 2 people arrived with 2 whole fishes, new potatoes and lettuce, tomatoes & onions. The fishes were flavorful and well prepared. There's a... More

So my friend was recommended to this restaurant after her surfing adventure I'm Lisbon. It's a small place which fits 24 people max. The chef is unbelievable It's true Portuguese food without all the bells and whistles. Just true home cooking with a touch of the chefs flare. The house wine is fresh from a barrel from Porto and the... More

On our first night in Lisbon we found this restaurant as we walk around Rua Do Norte to find a place to have dinner. The smell of grilled fish in the alley smelled so good we followed where it was coming from. The restaurant is small with only a few seats inside. It was full when we get there and... More
