For an upscale dining experience, you would expect more than 2 things on their menu- steak or steak! (Think: not good for a group where someone might be vegetarian or not eat red meat.) The entrecote was delicious but overpriced considering the only option for a side is French fries (I can go to a fast food restaurant for that... More

On our last day in Portugal we visited this charming French bistro looking restaurant. Nice atmosphere, very skilful waiter. Food was excellent: 2 starters: green salad with or without salmon carpaccio. Main: the sirloin with fries and French 16-ingredient sauce. So tender beef and tasteful sauce. Rich desert menu, where I couldn't make up my mind and was served a... More

One of the best steaks I've had and the sauce is terrific. The wine was excellent and, for the quality, cheap by UK standards. I did think it was a little pretentious.

We got a table at this restaurant on a Saturday night when we popped in on passing & were lucky enough to be seated straight away. The menu is simple with the option of meat or vegetarian. We opted for the entrecôte with green salad starter & were really pleased with our meal (entrecôte steak in a sauce with endless... More

This place is just a bad copy of a french brasserie... The food has nothing to do with a real brasserie food. Its pretentious...

We went here the second night of our stay in Lisbon. At first I was a little surprised that there were only 4 options on the menu. Actually it made it very simple to order and I rather have only one good item on the menu than 100 and non really good. The steaks were cook to perfection for each... More

It's hard to say which is the best.. if is the sauce, the french fries or l'entrecote (medium/well).. or even the salad before main course :-) Warm environment, very professional people to serve and to advise you anytime. Strongly recommended.
