We visited this restaurant because of its good reviews on tripadvisor. We both chose the veal which was a very generous portion but wished there had been more vegetables with the meat (this seems to be a common trait with Lisbon restaurants). The staff were very friendly and helpful and allowed me to have a dessert which was part of... More

Fresh ingredients, open kitchen, restful decor, wait staff on top of everything. Music and lighting just right. Relaxed and affordable with local wines to compliment your meal.

Stumbled across this place on our first night and were attracted by the menu, the decor and greeting at the door. For us there is nothing worst than being pestered and this place has got the service just right - attentive but not in your face rushing you to finish your meal. Stylish presentation and delicious food

I was in Open with friends in august 2014. Everything was really nice, starting from the place and the way it was furnished, to the service and the food, genuine and simple but at the same time particular and tasty.

Had a lovely meal with excellent knowledgeable service. As a coeliac I had some problems eating safely in Portugal but not here. The gluten-free options were spelled out and I even had special bread baked for me to keep my wife company with her standard bread, olive oil and balsamic. A very nice experience all round. Thoroughly recommend it. By... More

I am a vegetarian and was having a hard time finding anything but bread and cheese, and this place was a great find. We had good service, but it was really slow while we were there. There were only 5-6 tables occupied in the entire place. We tried the butternut squash soup and eggplant and my husband had the triggerfish... More

Echo previous comments. Food and drink good when it comes. Staff so busy, food and drink orders forgotten despite constant reminders. Seems to be endemic of Portugal culture, except for Luzzo pizza over the road. Electronic Pos ability, fastest meal in Portugal yet. Would have rated them 5 star but not on Tripadvisor yet.

We booked a table for 3 at 20:15, it is now 21:56, the main course is still not served.... I aske the waiter who told me that the chief is doing as fast as possible. I'm almost starting to find it funny. Appart from that, Food is not bad. But you must have time.

Dear “Cphome”, Thank you for your feedback. Please accept our most sincere apologies for this unfortunate experience. Unfortunately, we had some last minute staffing issues in the kitchen and we did not expect the flow of customers that walked in at more or less the same time. I assure you this is not typical of our normal high standards. Thank... More

We were looking for a place to have dinner close to our hotel on a Sunday night, and fortunately came across this restaurant as many of the other places nearby were closed (including the restaurant we had planned to go to). This is a very nice, modern, spacious restaurant with a calm atmosphere. The menu is not very large, but... More
