Sweet introduction to Barrio Alto with Good food .

Restaurant was hopping. Great first night in Lisbon . Enjoy Barrio Alto . Good food . Ham and cheese on the table was new to us . Packed with locals and travelers alike .. The walk up the hill was part of the fun . Getting lost on the way down was fun too .

I am a local and I go to this restaurant very often. This is a very relax place to try the Portuguese food, particularly the fish. All the meals are excellent. could be very busy and its better go early.

The food was cheap, but average. For all of us the meal was forgettable. You wont go wrong here if hungry, but you could do better.

There are many places to eat in this area, we looked every one of them an at last decided to go in there because it seemed to have a cosy and warm atmosphere. We tried grilled swordfish and monkfish with rice. Both were good and tasty. The service was also good. We paid 50 Euro for the main courses plus... More

We enjoyed this restaurant. Its on this little side street in Lisbon. The staff were very experienced and helped us choose. It was very fun. The atmosphere is good too. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the people go by and the night.

stumbled across this by chance, was so impressed, we came back the next night. Despite it being very busy, service was prompt and friendly, and we were not rushed. They serve typical portugese food (fish/ rabbit/ pork dishes) decent portion sizes and the house red was exceptionally pleasant! My only regret is that we were not able to visit a... More

Very good food and non-touristic. Friendly but busy staff. Local food and specially the fish was delicous. Worth a second visit.
