We arrived about mid day and we have no problem to get a table, or a kind of... the table have a reduced size so a 2 person table sizes less than a half of the normal one. We got "Feijoada" and a cod fish au gratin. The feijoada had the black beans a burned taste and lack ingredients of... More

It's a nice small place (compared to Rio Scenarium) with a good atmosphere and chill music, we went on what seemed jazz/bossa nova night... food was nice and so was the beer (Heineken draft!), caipirinhas were good and the bartenders were always asking if we wanted one more! I liked that it was cozy and not so crowded as other... More

I was shocked with the disrespect with the customers at this restaurant. We called in advance to make a reservation to see a band play. The person on the phone said that the band would start playing at 7pm and if we hadn't arrived by then our reservation would lapse. So I arrived together with my husband at 6:50pm, we... More

This restaurant caught my attention with its decoration with baroque angels and wall paintings. The food is also good and well served. The tables in front closed the package for a great atmosphere.

Located on the touristic and vibrant Rua do Lavradio, Santo Scenarium shares room with several other restaurants. The place itself has an interesting atmosphere combining its antique decor to live music performances, such as a full jazz orchestra. We were in a group of 4 friends and stick with the appetizers, which was a good choice. The food was great... More

We were treated to a rude way. Food is very expensive and the food is not so good. The owner is not educated enough to work with clients and serve food. keep an eye on your bill, the restaurant usually charge more things without being consumed. Always check how many beers you drank. i Never will come back in this... More

The setting,in Rua do Lavradio,is very charming and nice - a small closed paved road with small painted houses and the typical antique stores, with many bars and restaurants with their small wooden chairs and table, music coming from the insides of every one of them and, just to stay there in serenity,an enormous bouncer that prevent anyone from disturbing...

I came here after reading the recommedations in TripAdvisor. Actually, it was quite disappointing. I hope it was just a bad day. We waited for our dishes more than 30 minutes. When it came at last, we got the first dish (carpaccio) with the main course, although we asked explicitly to get it first. The food was quite cold and... More

We happen to walk pass this place and decided to have lunch there. Food was very good and the service was good too. Should be a good place for dinner too.
