Make the count, 7 Euros After that the bacalhao a brás was dry, 6/10.... More

We were persuaded into this place while walking along the river because the woman listened to what we were looking for, explained what they had that would suit us, and the vegetarian salad was appealingly unusual. My cod thing wasn't so great (though a v interesting dish), but the v salad had seared pineapple, fresh asparagus and proper roast veg,... More

the food quality is average, although the menu seems quiet elaborate. too expensive for the food quality provided (about 30€/person). the service/staff is good, nothing to point here.

we ordered filet, salmon and cod fish, all were bad. service was bellow average, slow, no attention. you can have better food and service at Rivera at the other side of the river. the ambient is modern, but the basics are not covered.
