After our first few days in Lisbon we were enjoying the holiday but hadn't had anything other than average food, so we looked for a recommended place that wasn't overly expensive. This place came up and so we went over to have a look. We got lucky getting a table - they only have about 16 seats so if you... More

We were a bit nervous that it might not live up to the reputation that this place is obviously building on TA, but it justified all of the good reviews. Friendly, personal, service and fantastic dishes reflecting local produce and styles. Tapas style portions and good wine and very reasonable prices. Yes, it's a bit off the beaten track and... More

This was our best meal in Lisbon. The menu is small but everything is well chosen. Lots of local ingredients and dishes, wine list was excellent too. Great service, very friendly. Book in advance as lots of people were turned away at the door because they had not made a reservation.

This place is very small and pretty difficult to find. It looks more as very small kiosk with couple of tables and a kitchen behind. We did like the food, but we found it a bit pricy for the size of portions and the surrounding atmosphere. Since it is such a small place, be prepared to smell of all kitchen... More

Our meal was simple but delicious. Well prepared, fresh and tasty tapas. They have a nice range of dishes and each one we tried was excellent. And at their prices, it's an unbelievable value. The place is tiny and filled up quick so you may want to call ahead.

This place was sinply amazing. We got there early since we didn't have reservations. The place is quiet, very attentive, and the food is divine. Trust the reviews and stop in! Also we emailed the staff asking for a recipe for the beef dish and they were so kind to send it.

This is a tiny little tapas restaurant so you must make a reservation. You won't be disappointed - just about every dish we tried was excellent and we re-ordered several. it is run by a hard-working husband and wife team who certainly deserve their success, and the food and wine recommendations were very good. Amongst other things we tried the... More

We had a very good time at this charming little restaurant. Food was excellent and service was so warm. You can pick up anything on the menu and you sure will appreciate it. Very reasonable prices.
