Nice dinner

The service was very thoughtful. The food flavor was amazing like you expect from a big chef. We eat 'Pernil fumado à transmontana' e 'Arroz Malandrinho' Unfortunately we chose a bad day (a lot of christmas dinners) and the place was a bit to loud.

Higher standards and better food than many of the local restaurants. Staff very helpful and wine list excellent. Very quiet for dinner midweek but still excellent service and cuisine.

My wife and I decided spontaneously to eat in Chefe Cordeiro because it had no photographs of its dishes outside. We were very well treated by a wonderful waiter who contributed equally to our time as the food. I ate a traditional Portuguese rice dish with chicken and my wife tried a fish meal. Both were really exceptional.

The arroz malandro with seafood was the centerpiece of our meal -- it was hands down delicious, having a homey yet elevated flavor. We were served by several members of the waitstaff throughout the meal; the timing was always just right.

I booked a surprise dinner to a friend thru Best Tables. It was her birthday and so I added a comment stating that. The restaurant is really nice, the staff is very professional and extremely friendly. The menu has wonderful choices, most of them a "remake" of traditional portuguese food. The choice of desserts was good and the wine list... More

Hidden restaurant in the middle of a big square. We saw the name on a banner and wanted to try the restaurant for a birthday celebration. The soup, and main meals, octopus and risotto were excellent and in adequate quantity. The appetizers on the table were plentiful. We thought we were being charged for the appetizers a set rate but... More

This restaurant was advised and advertised as a gourmet place to have a fancy meal. I must confess that the desert was disappointing, but worse than that was the cod fish dish. Very blend and missing seasoning. For the price you pay it is expected a higher standard.

Great location. Awful food. Above average prices for food that can be found to a higher almost anywhere in Lisbon. Prawns undercooked. Sent back. Re cooked which your average restaurants would replace. Still undercooked. AVOID!!!

The food was good quality and the view was great with the square lit up at night. Great place to stop since it is right next to Wines of Portugal!
