Very attentive to gluten free diner

There is a limited gluten free menu, but the chef was willing to modify the fish special so it was gluten free. They serve gluten free bread which was a nice addition, very rare in Portugal. The service was very pleasant and attentive. The waiter helped us to select great wines to complement our... read more

We loved this restaurant. Great service and amazing food. I had the suckling pig and my husband had the veal. Both were cooked to perfection. They also brought out a delicious surprise appetizer--chicken in a spring roll--and we ordered a starter salad that was also fresh and superb. We'd go back!

We were staying at the Inspira Santa Marta hotel where this restaurant is, so after a log busy day of sightseeing we decided to have a lazy evening at the hotel and eat at the restaurant. The food was presented really well and tasted amazing, the one thing that let the entire experience down was having to wait 15 mins... More

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
