good grilled fish

Small place with very good choice of fish, well grilled and tasty. Special desert of the house is delicious. Honest prices. Owner and waiters can speak several languages which makes it easy.

We went there because of Lonely Planet recommendation but it was big disappointment. I ate squids and my boyfriend typical portuguese dish: smoked chicken and bread sausage (served with french fries and rice?!). Squids tasted like a chewing gum without a flovour, salad was just a few vegetables without any sause. Only green wine was good. After having a dinner... More

We chose this small restaurant at random from a Lisbon guidebook and we are so pleased we did. The range of dishes on offer isn't huge, but golly is the food good! We had bread, sheep cheese and sardine pate with some good house wine while waiting for our main course. The tuna steak was cooked to perfection and SO... More

This restaurant was pointed out by our tour guide. It was totally worth the climb up the hill to have dinner. We enjoyed the house red wine, sheep cheese and bread to start. We all really enjoyed our meals, including the mixed meat kabob, grilled veal and "chicken and bread sausage". All for a surprisingly good price. Definitely a place... More

I ate here with two friends when visiting Lisbon for the bank holiday weekend. There were several groups waiting outside the restaurant for a table so we were pleasantly surprised when we were told there would be a table ready for us in three minutes. There were lots of locals in the restaurant as well as a few tourists like... More

Really good honest food and nice service. The upstairs part, which seems to be newer lacks character, but well you'll be too busy enjoying your food to notice :)

Four of us ate here on the last night of our break to Lisbon, definatley the best meal we had there. The staff were really friendly, and as it is a small restaurant it has a lovely cosy atmosphere. We shared warm cheese and bread as an appetiser, then mains were mostly fish, which was lovely. Really enjoyed our meal... More

We had both 2 drinks, 2 meals and 2 desserts and some bread and goat cheese for only € 35,- that is very cheap. The environment is great, small restaurant in Portugues style. The food is simple but the taste is great.
