We went to this restaurant three times during our visit to Lisbon so this restaurant must be doing something right. Food is excellent. if you do go, memorable dishes were the seafood rice and squid and bacon dishes. Location is fantastic with a nice patio. The big problem is the service, super slow and non existent at times We had... More

I would not plan on eating here unless you have ample time, as the service is very slow. The food is good, as is the location; however, the fact that wait staff essentially ignore you detracts from what could be a great restaurant.

The restaurant is next to the train station. We had a table on the square which was lovely as it was a hot day. All the dishes were great and prices even better. Great service.

This isn’t the first time we have eaten here, in fact whenever in Lisbon, this restaurant is a must. Don’t behave like a tourist and sit outside, head inside where the hustle and bustle is just great as you watch plates of steaming and deliciously smelling dished being rushed to the tables. It’s not elegant; it’s not luxury, it’s authentically... More

This restaurant is located across the street from the Hotel Avenida Palace and the train station. There is a fairly large outdoor seating area where you get to watch the busy city go by. Although the area is loud the noise doesn't impact your ability to have a quiet conversation. We had grilled lamb chops which were juicy and tasty.... More

Went here in a bit of desperation, as most places were full, but this place exceeded our expectations. Sat out in the noisy central square. The resto is very efficient, always filling up with people and the signature dish is a version of paella that was surprisingly tasty and fresh, washed down with very quaffable house white wine (their wine...

Really nice seating area outside in a very lively area. The brown crab was soooooo good. We had it twice in 1 week. Paella was good, but not really great. It's the crab that's the star!

No brainer if you're in Lisbon: it's a must go! I'm a local and I visit often. It's always good. Everything on the list is good. Seems pricey give. The ambiance and the atmosphere but it's worth every penny.

The food here was amazing! A little pricey but it definitely requires at least 1 visit - I ended up eating here 3 times in 2 weeks! I recommend the Clams for an appetizer, Pica Pao (Beef) for main course, and the cream pie for dessert. The cream pie is to die for.
