The best octopus I have ever had!

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.

The food here is beyond wonderful and is the SOLE reason my rating is still as high as it is. My husband had the octopus and I had the special black pork--both were out of this world good. However, the service was disappointing, and even having knowledge of typical Lisbon restaurant culture (i.e. the "free bread" appetizer isn't free), we,... More

A local guide recommended this small restaurant near the center of much of what draws visitors to lisbon. Very authentic and intimate and of great value. They take reservations and not a bad idea to do so. We really enjoyed our meal.

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 his case, which made me feel so uncomfortable... 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
