wonderful decoration, all gold and mirrors. But than we've had it... The staff is friendly, but there was no 'sommelier' who could help us with our choice. We had a red wine (105€) which didn't answer to our expectations. The appetizers missed flavour. Starters were'nt warm enough and the shrimp... read more

OK. I know. This is the typical place people from Lisbon would never enter ...top many mirrors .... and the proof is that when I called for booking they started conversation with a "Good afternoon" in English that madre me think about closing immediatly the call. I didn't and I was right. We had a very nice evening eating state-of-the-art... More

Amazing dinner experience in perhaps the oldest functioning restaurant in Lisbon. It's like having dinner at Versailles, all glitter and gold on the walls and covered with large mirrors and beautiful cristal chandeliers...very pricey, but worth the visit, at least once. Full of tourists, mostly (on a Thursday night), but don't let it discourage you. Best plates: the starter foie... More

The restaurant was very old Lisbon, charming and decadent. The food was very nicely presented but bland and very overpriced. The cover charge for bread etc., was 15 euros each. None of our fellow diners were local - that in itself speaks volumes. The staff did bring out a small cake / dessert for my birthday but I am not... More

If you dont mind paying its probably worth a visit for the surroundings and decor. Food is not brilliant but well presented. Staff not as friendly as in other places in Lisbon.

I reserved table trough internet for Christmas eve two weeks before and there was two warning sights already then: restaurants pages were only in portuguese and they asked me to pay half of the fixed-menu price in advance (334/2= 167 euros for two person), but their email didn't work! So when arriving to Lisbon we asked in hotel concierge to... More

I really enjoyed everything, from great staff, delicious food, and beautiful decor! The day I went the place was almost full, and even like that the service was great. I have no complains at all, and I would definitely go back, on my next trip to the beautiful Lisbon!

all the reviews praising the décor are more or less correct..but its not all that great. There are grander places. We went on a Friday and the place was empty save for a couple of tables. There was 1 waiter and 1 captain serving the entire place. The food was bad..it wasn't "ok".. it wasn't "passable" it was plain bad.... More
