Too bad we read the Tripadvisor Reviews after we got served. It was just horrible. We ordered coffee but had to send it back as it was only water and it tasted just awful. They gave us each a new coffee and it wasn't much better. We left it there - paid the overpriced coffees and left. Bad decision to... More

85 Euros for 3 soups, 1 risotto and 1 scrambled egg, 1 bottle of wine, 1 small bottle of water and 2 expressos. The rest are charges for cheese, bread, air you are breathing, space you are taking, etc.

Everything said by others about this place is true - bad food, unfriendly waiters and too expensive for what you get. I can add this - it is a real scam. They try to charge you for everything, including things you have not ordered and the rest is absolutely overpriced. Simply, do NOT go there: there are a lot of... More

I am Portuguese and was taking friends from the UK to see the castle, Santa Luzia etc. I asked if the clams were fresh (a favourite of mine, which I eat frequently in Portugal) I was assured they were good. I ordered them and was horrified to be presented with totally dried out, over cooked clams that were tasteless. When... More

The waiter was quick to put a "couvert" (in this case a basket of bread, a plate with 2 pieces of packed butter , one piece of sardine paste and two already open small rolls of fresh white cheese) on the table before we could order anything. Actually we had only come for a drink but my wife finally also... More

The food was overcooked, the service was terrible and the price for the couverts was way over the top for any Portuguese standards. For the price I paid I could have had a really good meal down at the centre at some relatively fancy restaurant.

We had a great time in Lisbon,but unfortunately ate here for our last meal. The "couvert" we did not touch and when we questioned it on the bill the waiters suddenly forgot their English. Normally couvert is included in a menu of the day for a set price so if you do not eat any of it at least you... More

For us, we were hungry and noticed that the trolly from the castle were very crowded so we decided to just sit and eat somewhere. This place was nicely situated to see the trolly line so we sat down. Like other reviewers have noted, they immediately brought bread and butter. Bread was soft, unlike almost every other restaurant in Europe.... More

After walking and visiting places around the beautiful Alfama, my boyfriend and I we were looking for a place to have lunch, we saw this well located place with a good terrace and decided to have the lunch there. As many of people in the review, they brought us cheese and bread that we thought it was free but in... More
