Nice place

We enjoyed our evening here and we're lucky to get there early enough to get a table. Good mix of locals and tourists. One waiter we had was great, another not so efficient and friendly. Food was nice but not entirely memorable. Great to hear some live fado, then the place became full, many locals... read more

We enjoyed our evening here and we're lucky to get there early enough to get a table. Good mix of locals and tourists. One waiter we had was great, another not so efficient and friendly. Food was nice but not entirely memorable. Great to hear some live fado, then the place became full, many locals just having drinks or snacks.

Absolutely great food. A little more "fancy" than we are haha, but absolutely awesome food. We barely started eating and were talking about coming back. Wait staff were wonderful except for our waiter who was extremely professional yet not customer friendly. He acted as if we were in his way being there. Otherwise, great food and atmosphere and great rest... More

We went there for having lunch in a Sunday and the restaurant was not crowdy. We had the goat and it was really good. The service was equally good! They also had someone playing piano and they didn't not charge us for that like other restaurants did it! Very nice place!

An enjoyable live music while you dinner. Unfortunately the food took too much to arrive (more than 1 hour) and I guess this was a particular case because other tables received their meal sooner than our even they arrived later. Meals are acceptable if you like meat and fish, so be ready to eat a pasta if you are vegetarian.... More

Originally it was opened in 1933. After the big succes of the Majestic cafe, they tried also to reconstract the old atmosphere of the cafe. They succeded more or less. The waiters are very polite, the food is really good. This "histroic café, restaurant" is on the corner of Avenida dos Aliados.

This place is right in the central square & has an English menu outside: so one's initial suspicion is: Tourist Trap. However, food, service and value were very good. I had the signature baked cod, with a bottle of Mateus Rose (professionally served in an ice bucket) Everything was fine I would certainly consider eating here on a future trip,.

The waiters really cannot do enough for you and they all speak many languages. the food is lovely and so is the wine. We really enjoyed our dinner here. One of the more costly meals we had but not over expensive at all and good portion sizes.
