Be warned this restaurant is quite difficult to find and several taxi drivers had no idea where it was. But once you are there you will enjoy the lovely setting and delicious food. I can particularly recommend the ray. It is not a cheap meal but worth it although I found the starter portions extremely small.

Great place to eat in Lisboa. We enjoyed the scenery with a beautiful courtyard, the weather was excellent so we could dine outside. The starters comes like tapas in Spain, a collection of great fish, cheese, oysters, pata nera and other delicious vegetables. We can certainly recommend the Peterfish ... Splendid. Excellent service, very good English speaking people On the... More

The restaurant is located in an old covent. So, the setting is great for an amazing dinner. They serve a menu where you can only choose your maindish, so don't be surprised if you will not be greeted with a dish menu. You will see a procession of waiters, passing with different dishes for appetizers and starters. All is of... More

We had a very romantic dinner with my husband. Found the restaurant by chance as it is situated in walking distance from our hotel. The dinner was delicious! We liked everything! Looking forward to be back!

We were part of a large art and art history group spending 4 days in Lisbon and we visited this restaurant for lunch. First of all it is a lovely room! Despite this large influx of people the service was good and attentive. What really nailed it for us was the food which was really excellent! Our main course was... More

Warning - if you have special dietary needs, do not like certain foods or are fussy - do not visit. If you are up for trying a series of starters which are chosen for you and something slightly different - this is the place for you. The venue is absolutely beautiful, with romantic lighting set around a former convent courtyard... More

This place could, and should, be a lot better, and a little more honest. It has an unusual formula whereby it serves several small starters, whether you ask for them or not. Some of these (eg strips of Pork / Shellfish) would be unacceptable to many potential diners. Like others, I was cross to be charged for carafes of what... More

We are SO happy to have eaten here (and almost went back for a second meal during our three-day stay). Fun variety of starters to share at the beginning (particularly loved the mussels and the goat cheese app, though I think they change every night)--they come out dim sum style, which is also traditional Portuguese style. I had the scallops... More

This is a difficult review to write as my husband and I had the most disappointing evening we can remember having in a long time at this place. Looking at earlier Tripadvisor reviews it seems we shared a similar experience with around 10% of other reviewers so you should think carefully before coming here. Money in itself was not the...
