“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. Having tried restaurants recommended in our guide books, we were thrilled to find this excellent restaurant serving portuguese food with a modern twist. We were so impressed by the food and service that we returned for a second visit. The food was superbly cooked and the restaurant staff were helpful and charming but their service discrete.

“Far from the center with average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

We paid more than 30€ in taxi to go to this restaurant, far from the center. The food is only ok with good service and a beat expensive. Don't recommend because the taxi.

“Wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

On one of my recent visits to Portugal, Me and my husband went for a lovely dinner at this fantastic restaurant which had been recommended by a friend. The service was attentive but discret and the food excellent! We ate some lovely portuguese delicacies as entrees, followed by beautifully cooked fresh fish. The choice of wines was great too. I would recomend this lovely restaurant for any occasion as it has areas where you can have some privacy and others for larger groups. We were almost the last guests to leave and we never felt rushed to finish our evening quickly.

“Unlikely location for one of the best retaurant in Lisbon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Had a business lunch there. The place is run by Chakall, a local celebrity chef that has his TV show and all kind of endorsement deals for whom I care very little. I actually had a negative preconceived idea. But this place is by miles ahead the best restaurant I have experienced in Lisbon. It could have a Michelin star. Everything is perfect, from food to service, space between tables etc. It is on the outskirts of Lisbon in a weird location. But once you're inside, the staff is professional and discrete... Love it.

“Very good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Enjoyable decoration, friendly and professional service, very good food.
I wonder if chief's Chakal recipes are still being used, but the overall result is very good. Deserts make you cry for more. Reasonably priced.
