“nothing to return: low cost food to overcharge groups, low cost interior”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

Nothing to remember at this place which concept seem to be be a venue for bigger groups which first can be catered upstairs, then dance and party downstairs.

As Italian food seems to be quite popular right now in Lisboa we got 1 small bruschetta which was somehow the highlight of the "dinner", the vegetarian lasagne served on a cold (!) plate was nothing but tasteless, the salad we should share with 5-6 people without any dressing. We sat there for maybe 3hours and the only thing they served voluntary was a cheap Sangria.

At the end we 2 needed to pay 30€ - I felt overcharged as I got much better and esp. much MORE food for that price - usually we have bread, olives, cheese, 2xfish with side dishes, 2xdessert, 1liter wine and pay only 20€ in Portugal....

The intererior is cheaply made, no design, you eat in dark areas and can't even see what you eat....

An absolut nogo in Bairro Alto!!

Useless to say that they allow smoking in all areas as in most party places in Lisbon - however most people go outside to smoke as they want to smoke something else than tabacco (or a mix)....

Note that the small bar next to this place had good starters: olives, bread, salada de polvo was superb!
