Ate a few tapas here and they were very good although pretty expensive. Wine was good quality and service was great!.

I have visited this restaurant and its partner at the Campo Pequena on several occasions and recommended it to business contacts. Never again . Today's experience was such a sharp disappointment that it has driven previous visits from mind. On this occasion we seemed to be the only non-Portuguese present and were effectively ignored ; we were left waiting repeatedly... More

A bread and olive oil cover began the meal, a bit boring but not bad. As is the norm with tapas, the dishes arrived as they were cooked, unfortunately this meant we were left with nothing but asparagus for a while and as well seasoned and cooked as it was, it was still just asparagus, on it's own...not a great...

Eight of us ate here on our last night in Portugal, after having a number of excellent meals in Lisbon and Lagos. We agreed that this was on par with what was overall a great week of eating. The space is very interesting and relaxing, the service was great, the food was very well prepared, with something for everyone, and... More

It was our last night in Lisbon so we decided to try here based on the positive reviews. We chose the baby squid and the foie gras for starters. The baby squid didn't taste of anything and was mainly just batter but the foie gras was quite nice and came with crisp breads and an onion chutney. I chose the... More

An unpretentious restaurant with friendly staff, great meats, easily navigable wine list and a lively contemporary decor. Five stars.

Lots of TripAdvisor users stay at the Hotel Britania (a very good hotel with a great staff) and if you are like us, you arrived early in the morning jet lagged beyond belief and just wanted to flop down for some rest. Looking for a restaurant when you are that tired can be trying to say the least. Good news,... More

Last minute lunch stop on way back to Hotel. Relaxed atmosphere wine bar, bistro style menu. Portuguese food....fantastic choice on the wine front. Clearly well frequented by locals for business lunch. Good selection on menu. Tuna ordered with mixed salad. Fantastic..... recommended.

We were staying in the nearby Hotel Britania and this restaurant was suggested to us by the receptionist there. The cuisine is Portuguese/Spanish, a style that suited us very well. The staff were very pleasant indeed and were prepared to take time with diners to help them make their choices. Located in part of an old building in a street... More
