Good stop in for lunch (make a reservation)

Made a reservation for lunch - so we were seated quickly. Service was very fast and food was good. View was nice but there is some construction going on next door so the view was a bit obstructed. I imagine the ambiance is a bit nicer in the evenings. We ate at places with both better views, better... read more

If you believe in magic, don't go there. If you're prepared to believe in magic, don't miss it! It's amazing, extraordinary, magical. We went in November. Dark winter night. Long day. Getting cold. Restaurant down an unlikely side alley. But... But.. Wow! Open terrace, protected from winter by mobile heat and transparent canopies. Lights of Lisbon opening up in front... More

Service was good, but the whole concept seemed stuck in the 90's. I also expected a better view, but this was obstructed by walls I'm guessing they put up to shield for the wind. Good, but not great.

This place was just across our hotel. We were so tired after a day of touring, we were very happy to see the signs to this restaurant. There is a lot of construction around, so we were initially unsure as to where to go. Service was very friendly and the decor very good. Beer was cheap. It was too cold... More

We had only drinks here, but next visit I will go for lunch. A great find of a place, hidden behind the LostIn shop or down an alley. It's veranda is placed ontop of the valley with amazing views in picturesque surroundings - Indian themed. The bread and spreads went well with our cava and I look forward to trying... More

Nicely located, I bet there once was a stunning view over the city, but the trees have now grown to the point of blocking much of the view, so all the hype about this place it's mostly gone. Loving Nature, I know most times it can be hard to cope with it but I do hope they arrange it differently... More

I went there for a late lunch with friends, it was full but not extremely busy. They have inside and outside seating, the terrace is covered during winter and they have heaters around. The decoration was colorful and based on Indian items and paisleys, probably taken from the store attached. The food was great and the menu had good variety.... More

Went here with my girlfriend for a late Friday night dinner. Lovely place with an amazing view. Food was excellent, service was good, polite and helpful but not pushy. Very chilled atmosphere. Not an overpriced tourist trap like many places in Lisbon. Mostly locals inside, but they also had English menus for tourists. The restaurant was recommended to me from... More
