The restaurant is a typical portuguese style restaurant not far from major tourist attraction. The food is quite good and prices are moderate. I tried their turkey chunks (peru) prepared in a mushroom sauce (congumelo) served with rice and fries. It was very well done. other members of the party ordered the plate of the day, fried fish which they... More

Good, value for money, fresh Portuguese food at this local restaurant. We had sardines, mackerel, beer and house wine, all well priced and very enjoyable. Didn't feel "touristy" and gave us a nice taste of the city on our first night!

After a delightful day visiting the castle and sightseeing Alfama we stumbled upon this seafood restaurant. It was very busy and had a 2015 4 star Trip Advisory sticker so we thought it would be a nice way to end our day. We could not be more wrong! It was 8:00 when we arrived which is most common for the... More

Loved this sweet restaurant!!! We had the grilled 7-fish dinner. Fantastic. As was the house wine and the cheese and bread starter and most of all, the delightful owners---fun and funny. What a treat!!!

Piri Piri chicken is a Portuguese classic, and Piri Piri does a great job with the dish, as well as all the side dishes. They have both inside and outside seating and the outside area is particularly great as they are in a restaurant and theater district and the people watching is great. This is not an upscale sort of... More

So pleased we stopped here to have a late lunch early dinner. Waiter was friendly and willing to offer suggestions since he knew we were tourists. We had the mixed seafood grill for two...Outstanding, so well prepared, in fact perfect. Cheese and bread and pâté to start. Try it you'll like It!

We ate here twice during our Lisbon stay. The décor is pleasant, the service very good, the wine was better than average, and the food is good too. Particularly tender octopus and squid, and generous portions. Strongly recommended as an unpretentious neighbourhood restaurant.
