Wandering through the Barrio Alta on a warm Saturday evening, we happened upon an empty streetside table for two at this busy restaurant. Staff were helpful and efficient. Hawkers, street musician, and passing taxis that brushed past the tablecloth, added to the atmosphere. We had already twigged that the substantial nibbles came at a price, as in other restaurants we... More

Stay away from this place. We eent there 7 people and the food is really poor. They charge 20 euro for ham and cheese placed on the table when you arrive. The service is very slow, they pay a minimum off attention to the coustomers and when tey at last arrive to the table, you get the impression that they... More

I've been in this restaurant at the beginning of October with my family and we did not enjoy service, at first, and food either. I do not suggest you to go there, there are so many good restaurants in Lisbon that we have been really unlucky to end up in this one

Across from the restaurant is a wine bar with lots of open wine to try at prices that are not inexpensive for Lisbon. The manager is knowledgeable but you must take time as his English is not fluent. In the evening the back room of about 6 tables is packed and the wine bar in front is packed. In the... More

We stumbled across this place whilst on a day trip to Lisbon. We decided on the mixed fish for 2. The fish itself was amazing. Around 5-6 different types of fish including salmon, sardines, swordfish and some others we couldn't identify, with prawns and squid too. The fish was well cooked and in a lovely olive oil and garlic marinade.... More

If you want a great food in Lisbon you should go there. We had a lunch late afternoon at the inside room. The service was great. Best ever pastel de bacalhau or a moda do Minho. Easy to find but we didn't want to try the outside option...

Please do yourself a favour and avoid this place at all cost! The service is awful and slow. The waiter decided to be friendly with two solo girls and their drinks came way before ours even though they came 10 min after us. Poor selection on menu items. I ordered beef stake and got the Portuguese fried version of it... More

Five of us stupidly stopped off for lunch after looking over a few restaurants. 3 plates of bread were placed on the table, had to ask them to take 2 away as we were aware we would be charged (3 euros a plate). One person had a hamburger which was undercooked and could not eat it, another person had the... More

We stopped here for dinner on our first evening. We sat on the street, which turned out to be a mistake as some buskers set up camp right next to us and deafened us for twenty minutes. The waiter recommended a kind of mojito cocktail, which was delicious. We also twigged not to eat the variety of nibbles they put... More

We went 2 times in a week, the grilled octopus was delicious! We also had the meat with cockles, that was not so good, but everything we had on the grill was top!
