Happened upon this place as we explored on our first night in Lisbon. Didnt really know what to expect and weren't familiar with the most appropriate dish combination. The waiter suggested various dishes and we settled for tuna, with an additional cheese and sausage/meet plate. He also suggested an excellent red, which turned out to be most enjoyable. We fortunately... More

We ordered a tuna and a roasted codfish of the house. They surprised us with an outstanding presentation of the tuna (please see photo) which appeared as if it were a garnished sweet. In truth it was made by squared pieces of soft tasty tuna interspersed with small pieces of roasted potatoes. The garnish was made ​​with strips of delicate... More

Some very nice meats and cheese with some additional jams and other accompaniments. Great wine selections and good advice. All set off nicely with live music. Wine tapas bar and worth a visit if you are in the area and looking to spent a enjoyable hour or so relaxing before the rest of your sightseeing.

This is a very popular spot, so be here early or prepare to wait (with a free glass of wine if you are lucky). We had a plate with mixed cheeses and a few small dishes, and one of the recommended wine bottle. The food was good but not excellent. However, in combination with the great atmosphere, the great staff,... More

Me and my partner visited Lisbon for the first time a couple of weeks ago. By chance we discovered this little gem of a place. For me it is the perfect place to visit if you are tired a eating out and just want a nice evening out, snacking away on bits of meat, cheese and other tapas with live... More

I'm sorry I have to write this but I expected so much more. The Good: It is a nice space. The location is great. The wine selection is very good. The music is nice (but way too loud). The Bad: The service is shocking. We waited 30 minutes before our waiter took a drink order and only for part of... More

This place is a gem, with a really cosy atmosphere. Just give your self over in Alex hands, tell him your mood and he will give you an experience of a lifetime. Passion is just the first name. Green wine, vintage white port, smooth cheese and pata negra that melts on your tounghe. Excelent!!

The white they recommend and port with octopus salad match perfectly. We really enjoyed the night and would like to visit again in the future!
