The hardest working staff I've ever seen. There's no hanging about here. It's not fine dining by any stretch of the imagination but the feeding of a constant stream of locals and visitors. A real experience.

On our last day in Lisbon we came across this small restaurant which serves local dishes with locally sourced ingredients. We both had 'knife & fork' steak which is cooked with a sauce of coffee, cream and port. It's served with thin French fries all home made. We chose to share a salad with it. For desert we had home...

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
