Good food, fruadulant bill.

Everything was wonderful until we got the bill. Very friendly, putting a small appetizer in front of us at beginning. But when the bill came, that small appetizer came out to almost 10$. OK, so we were negaively surprised and we told the owner so. But instead of conceeding, he overly pleaded... read more

Had a decent meal here, my partner had tuna, good size portion, with salad and potatoes and i had picanha with rice, black beans and chips. With a bottle of white wine i think the bill was about 32 euros..Staff were pleasant and efficient.

It won't be the most stylish restaurant in Lisbon, but it is friendly and welcoming, and serves plentiful food and good local wine at very reasonable prices. Yes, you do pay for the 'couvert' of bread and cheese (delicious!) but if you do your homework you'll find that this is normal in Lisbon: and you can always refuse! We both... More

Very comfortable and hospitable atmosphere (especially on the 2nd floor), the food quite good, but not the best choice in Portugal.

Beautiful location in the center of Baixa, incredible food and very reasonable prices ! My husband and me enjoyed every minute at that place, specially the cheese and bread ! We will repeat this beautiful experience, every time we go to Lisbon :-)

Small restaurant with local menu. Good service and reasonable prices. Suggest the thin steak with sauce or the chicken sausage Both good. Usual bread and cheese also good. Obsession with French Fries but good nonetheless.

A real scam!! The place was so small that I couldn't even seat properly! There were three waiters and all of them were just looking at us while we were having dinner, very uncomfortable! Moreover, the cheese and the bread served as starter were actually charged on the bill without even advice us of this, we thought was just a... More

This place came recommended in the lonely planet. We tried to visit on Sunday but it was closed but we're keen enough to try again. The restaurant has a good position on a corner plot. It was full, despite this being a Monday in January. We did not bother with a starter as in Lisbon you generally are given a... More

I traveled solo which can get awkward at lunch- and dinnertime. Because of the recommendation in my guidebook I found this place. It's small so when I entered and saw it was empty it felt even more awkward to leave. So I sat down and ordered a sea bass. With a small salad and a soft drink. While I waited... More

Compared to all of the other touristy restaurants in the core of the city, this restaurant is above-average. The food was good and the service was much friendlier than expected. Menu consists of the standard regional items. I would recommend to those looking for a good meal that won't break your budget.
