Delicious

We stumbled across this restaurant late in the evening on our first night. They only let you drink or eat dessert outside but were happy to let us nibble some starters. The black pudding was delicious and stafg were super nice.

Well hidden in the maze of alfama we managed to find this restaurant on recommendation of friends. The place well known to the locals so by just asking on the streets to the locals we were pointed in the right direction. The restaurant has a great easy going atmosphere with many old photos of celebrities on the wall. I had... More

Nothing on the menu really attracted me, so I chose the most expensive item: steak. 19 euro. but I got a small peace of meat, with gorgonzola sauce an a lot of fat french fries. They didn't seem to make a big effort. Not worth going.

This restaurant was recommended to us and it probably is a delight to many. For me, it was "meh". We ordered the fried chicken pieces which were rather heavy on the salt and consisted of chicken backs. The shrimp were very, very heavily breaded and tasted like they were from a freezer..the blood pork sausage was velvety but the applesauce... More

The walk to the restaurant through the winding streets of Alfama in the dark was atmospheric and fun. In addition to the wonderful food, the restaurant space is really lovely, and the staff were courteous and professional. A great dinner in a special place.

Very nice local food in the old town. Take a walk through the old city and land here for a nice traditional meal. The restaurant is small and full of pictures of celebrities who have visited. Definitely a nice place to have a meal.

The most helpful and friendly service added to the charm of the outdoor seating, under the vines with a view of the eponymous Santo Antonio church and the surrounding buildings are good enough reasons for visiting this restaurant, but we went twice in our week in Lisbon because the food was good - usual reason for going to a restaurant!...

My wife and i visited here one evening around 8. At that time, the restaurant was not full, but it quickly filled up and was full by 9. The menu has many choices from both starters and entrees. I had one of the sausage choices--excellent Portuguese entree, delicious. The frites that came with it had to be some of the... More
