This is one of the few restaurants that you never get disappointed. For many years, this restaurant keeps the standards very high. You will be sure that you will eat very well, but be prepared to pay accordingly.

The food was cooked to perfection, the fish was- salmon was very tender, even though the restaurant is full in the weekend, the food did not take that long to be prepared, the staff seemed to be in a hurry, but for a good reason. The only downside if there were any is the price, compared to other restaurant it... More

It was like stepping into the 40's or 50's. The interieur was beautiful and so authentic that I could hardly believe it. Service was the best I have ever experienced and the food was like in any Michelin restaurant. I can recommend this from the bottom of my heart.

While we found the prices somewhat high, the food, service and atmosphere were excellant! It's been years since we've had service of this kind, attentive but not overbearing. The wait staff is very, very well trained and knowledgeable about their menu and wine list. The food was equally good and copious. I hesitate to award more than a 4/5 because... More

It is a rare treat to find in such an 'old school' restaurant. Traditional simple food done very well, proper napery, older, well trained waiters who are very good with a relaxed way borne out of knowing their job properly. Not for everyone, but if you are in hospitality, this is a wonderful example of service that seems to be... More

This restaurant is one of the few old good restaurants in Lisbon that maintain its quality. We arrived by 11 PM and we were not looking for a proper meal. So we seated at the balcony and eaten roasted beef sandwiches that were great. The service is top class.

Very expensive - especially for Lisbon. A little bit over the top with service level and traditional restaurant environment. Food was OK, nothing special.

We visited twice on our recent visit, this is an institution , fantastic food , excellent service and attention to detail.
