Saw this restaurant on trip advisor and then stumbled across it on the way up to the castle. It's tiny, and only seat 12 so timing is important and we managed to get a table straight away, lots of others weren't as fortunate and either waited outside or went to find something else. Great welcome, and the host spent time... More

We came to this place especially because of Tripadvisor reviews and were completely satisfied! The restaurant is owned by a married couple - they prepare food and dealing with customers. The place is quite small, but very pleasant. I suppose, you have to book a table in advance there...especially for the lunch and dinner. In this restaurant you have feeling... More

Had read the TripAdvisor reviews and decided to give it a try after exploring Alfama. The place was packed when we arrived but to our luck a couple was settling up and we were given the last table of the night (note: you will not be seated after 9:15 pm). The restaurant is very small. It literally has 6 two-tops,... More

To judge by other travellers' comments and a guide book entry, the food is clearly good here, and we would very much like to have tried it. But our experience - which seems to be the same as that of some of your other commentators - was disappointing. They were fully booked when we tried to go there, and were... More

Went here for my birthday and so pleased we did as this was the best restaurant we visited during our stay in Lisbon. Lovely intimate restaurant in a wonderful setting. Very friendly owners. Menu is fairly short but we liked that as all cooked fresh. Still enough choice for everyone. Prices very reasonable. I would advise booking as many turned... More

We enjoyed our lunch here. The host is charming and his wife a good cook. The only slight let down was the salad and accompanying vegetables - they could have been a bit more authentic/interesting. The restaurant is very small so would recommend booking a table. They also stop taking orders at 9pm!

On the way up to the castle we stopped into the restaurant to ask if we could book a table. I found the man to be rude and unhelpful. The response was a curt 'this is not possible'. At this I was in the process of leaving when he added, 'anyway you have six people, we do not take six... More

The best thing about this place is that the proprietor is very nice, while also understanding the tenets of good service. Additionally the location is excellent for those looking for a nice place to eat after/before visiting the castle. The food is very good, but not nearly excellent. Some have noted that it is pricey, but they forget to mention... More
