During our one week stay in Lisbon July 14.- 21. 2014, my wife and I discovered this pearl of a restaurant. It is located in the very beautiful Alfama district. Offering only space for about six tables, the restaurant gives a rather intimate atmosphere. It is hold by a nice couple; a charming Frenchman who takes care of the guests... More

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

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
