Nice food for very cheap prices. Don't expect fine dining or an experience that comes close to that. This is just a very basic restaurant but it is clean, the service is good and the food is just fine. Nothing to complain about taking into account the price paid (40 euro for 2 persons, including water and wine).

Visited with Friends that had eaten a couple of nights before, the service say excellent, our waitress very helpful and friendly and the food fabulous. The location is very nice too. Re the comment about a scam, I believe it's usual for Portuguese restaurants to serve bread and cheese etc to your table and you pay for what you eat.... More

We discovered this restaurant in our Lonely Planet guide book, as it was highly recommended. When we arrived there was a small queue outside of it, which gave us confidence that it was a popular place. We only waited around 5 minutes, and then were friendly seated and greeted. They offer you bread and fresh cheese, which IS NOT COMPLEMENTARY,... More

Lonely Planet Recommendation has become a Scam We had a meal at Faca&Garfo and found that the bread (1,70) and cheese (4,95) we're not complementary at the end of the meal when the bill arrived. When questioned, we were told that they were placed on our table for us to decide not to eat if we did not want to... More

Excellent local food, warm welcoming in this small typical restaurant. Do not go there too late as it is quite successful. We recommend it to tourists who are there for a few days to start a nice evening!

Ate here during a short city break in Lisbon. The food and service were good but the menu was limited and the restaurant, although immaculately clean, was a little basic and too brightly lit. We had mixed cheese and olive starter followed by octopus and dessert. With wine and coffee the bill came to approx 60 euros for 2 people.... More

Decided to try this restaurant based on other reviews and the fact it was just around the corner from our hotel. Ordered the usual sardine pâté, cheese and bread starter. The waitress returned to say the cheese we asked for had ran out, and suggested a different local cheese. I knew from when I looked at the menu that this... More

We had lunch here and enjoyed best-in-class seafood. The place might look inconspicuous (and a bit tourist-focused), but indeed offers great family atmosphere and great food. Pricing is decent as well.
