Simple and acceptable

This is not posh dining, it's a simple local restaurant with prices to match. Service was fine, the food plain but well cooked. Yes there were street vendors wandering in, but that's typical for this sort of place.

If you look the outside you think that could be a family Portuguese restaurant that serves simple but nice food, that's why we went there. Mistake, we ordered the worst soup that we have in our 9 days in Portugal and the chicken was raw. If a restaurant doesn't know how to cook grilled chicken, you cannot trust in the... More

By far this restaurant serves some of the worst food in the town. Ordered a grilled chicken and when it arrived it was raw (I mean really RAW not just undercooked). The chicken was served with some horrible rice and slice of tomato - at least I think it was a tomato.

We were there on 28 Dec 2015 Night. Food is cheap compared to other Restaurants but dodgy atmoshere. Be Cautious when dining ,as Street Vendors are allowed to come in to the restaurant & sell the stuff and Pickpocketers are also allowed to dinning. If you hang your Jacket on the chair be careful who sits next to you Pickpocketrs... More

The food was good, the staff was very friendly and chatty - we spend a good time talking about EURO 2016 group stage draw ;)

Enjoyed a very relaxed and unhurried evening meal here, accompanied by a very quaffable Vino Verde. The Rabbit was very tasty and Pork was succulent and flavoursome. Very much a local family restaurant that was comfortable, reasonably priced and with friendly service; the menu was also available in English.

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!

Neighborhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
