We came to Lisbon for our anniversary and chose this restaurant for our celebration and they did not disappoint . We were greeted with a glass of champagne and the service remained impeccable. we shared two apps (mackerel ceviche) and fried cheese and rather than bring them at the same time, they brought two small plates one after the other....

A lovely setting for a special meal. The service was first class and we were made to feel very special from the complimentary drink on arrival through to the gifts as we left. Nothing was too much trouble including being able to have just a glass of the wine of your choice which is very rare in restaurants these days.... More

We had a lovely leavening meal here - 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 desserts, plus soft drinks came to 65 euros. We were also greeted with a glass of complimentary wine on arrival. The food was delicious and well presented. The waitress was very attentive and explained the whole menu. My wife couldn't decide which pudding to have, so she... More
