We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel and we certainly we're not disappointed. The host was very friendly, and took time with us to go through the menu, explaining each dish in turn. The service was very prompt and the food fantastic, I had the duck whilst my friend had the monkfish. Overall it was a fantastic... More

We had lunch here after visiting the castle. Very nice and cosy place with a great host, really friendly. We had codfish in beshamel sauce and squids. My squids were with garnish of peas, broccoli and baby carrots and it was clearly frozen before. But the squids themselves and the codfish were really good. And the fig cake for a... More

Had a booking and due to late arriving flight we got here rather late. Not so many customers. The food was good but nothing exceptional. The service was okay. Is it worth a visit? It is located a bit outside the normal dining areas in Lissabon, just below the castle. Well, you will find lots of similar personally run restaurants... More

The couple who run this are very friendly, have great suggestions and serve wonderful food. If you want a quiet romantic dinner this probably isn't the best place, but if you want to feel at home, chat with the owner, enjoy the food and a nice bottle of wine this is great. Do make a reservation since the restaurant is... More

Fortunately, we had a flat right across the street from this exceptional family run restaurant. Thus, we had our dinner there almost every night during our seven days stay. It is small - space for 12 people. That and the place itself, including a part of the wall of the Castel Sao Jorge, give the restaurant a special atmosphere. We... More

Before writing this review, I read through a couple of the previous ones and I must agree with some of it. Yes, this place is small, it can only seat 12 people. Yes, it is only run by two people, a husband and wife team. They try their best to be as friendly and welcoming as possible. This means socializing... More
