I've been there for lunch and dinner. Lunch time they have buffet menus that we can do a mix of dishes of the day, with an affordable price that includes coffee. The space is also great for a romantic, friends or family dinner. It has the best "chamuça desfeita" that I ever tried!

Friendly English-speaking staff provided attentive service throughout the night. Poppadom to start and then a starter that came quickly. Great value for money on our main dishes and the food itself was excellent.

Be careful with the chili though, my friend was sweating a lot, but he asked for it... The cheese nan was also amazing!! The staff was always very helpful and nice, so... More

I was visiting Lisbon alone and stumbled on this restaurant as it was round the corner from my hotel (Evolution Lisboa). The food was really tasty, the prices were great and the staff very friendly and really looked after me. I asked for a slight change to my meal and it was no problem - would visit again if I...

Good atmosphere. Very good service. You can have a free bouffe, fix menu or specific dish. The pricing is average.
