What a great place with fabulous food and lovely owners. We came late in the evening and too bad the chicken and gamba's were sold out but what we got was fantastic for a reasonable price. Only 20 seats so what everyone is saying:book in advance. We will be back!

Great hearty, food at an extremely reasonably price. We were really well looked after by our hostess and enjoyed it so much we returned for the last night of our break. There are only a few tables in this quaint place so booking ahead would be sensible.

My wife and I scouted this one out on Trip Advisor, we showed up on a Thursday and unfortunately they were booked out until Saturday, so we made a reservation and returned then. As stated in other reviews, the restaurant is owned and operated by a husband and wife team with the wife being the server. The menu was diverse... More

After reading reviews we decided to try to find this wonderful small place. It was a Wednesday night in march and we were very lucky to get a table. The charming waitress explained the menu and was very helpful. She apologised that we may have to wait as the kitchen was busy but we didn't feel it took to long.... More

Wow – one of the best meals I had in Lisbon. Quaint little casual place that is not the easiest to find - tucked away in a little Lisbon neighborhood. However, it is cozy inside and the husband & wife team run the place. MAKE RESERVATIONS – walk ups that show up and ring the bell hoping for a table... More

This tiny restaurant hidden in Barrio Alto is an absolute gem! Simple menu with delicious tapas to share, great wines, fantastic service and all at a very reasonable price. It was our first night in Lisbon and it exceeded our expectations - so friendly it feels like home. Just excellent!

It's my favourite restaurant in Lisbon to go and eat "portuguese tapas"! Great food with great service, it feels like home! Everytime I'm in Lisbon, I have to go there! It's impossible to not return :)
