For Sunday brunch a reservation is recommended. The atmosphere is unique and very enjoyable. The menu listed a variety of choices for brunch and the food was delicious and plentiful. Located yery close to one of the historical churches, it makes for a great place to stop and have a bite to eat.

Visited this place on our last trip to Lisbon & really looking forward to another visit but was a little underwhelmed. The food was lovely & surroundings hadnt changed but the service really let them down. Very false & sometimes bit rude. Shame.
