Relaxed place to enjoy good food

Lovely restaurant with good food and friendly relaxed staff. Cozy feeling due to the mixed furniture, lots of books, old walls and high ceiling. The staffs takes the time for you and are very helpful to explain the food on their menu. We had a Mozart sandwich, daily brunch with yoghurt and... read more

We stopped by here for lunch today. Good location, close to the Cathedral, and I liked the style of the restaurant. Service was good, and we got our drinks fairly quickly but I was a bit underwhelmed with the food. My husband had a bacon salad which he enjoyed but my goats cheese salad was a let down. The goats...

Very informal cafe-bistrot with good quality of food an good service. It is always packed so if you are more than two, make a reservation. You will have to share a table or "corner" with very nice people. I had quiche that was excellent! The fruit juices are really natural.

Seat at the big table and you are sure to meet a Portuguese artist, an Italian teacher or a French scientist...this cafe has a bit of Venice (California) flavor, casual-trendy. The food is good and affordable.

The outside seating belies what's going on inside--come into the cool stone and arched dining area to find a sitting area replete with couch and easy chairs, tables, bookcases and assorted lamps. Situated across from the Se Cathedral in Alfama, it's a nice stop while touring. And when you come again, bring a book or dvd to trade! Wifi is... More

I knew this place before but i was there only for a coffee. This time i went for brunch. Nice location. Friendly staff. The food could be better as well as the organization of service.

Went in yesterday with excitement based on the positive reviews. We ordered two sandwiches and coffee, and we have to say, the food and Coffee are so average. No surprise, but a bit dissappointment.

A lovely space with light, airy arched ceilings, comfy sofas, cool pics on the walls, bookcases to browse and games to play. Also big windows and some outdoor seating, nice for a spot of people watching. We had sandwiches, salad, houmous & wine, all great. I just wish they were open earlier, for my morning coffee! Will definitely try to... More

Just a few steps by Catedral Sé Patriarcal. Stopped by for a late day snack after a walking tour. It's perfect cozy place if you just want to chill out! Staff are all very friendly but service can be really slow. Highly recommend warm goats cheese salad!
