“Lovely restaurant in Belem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

On our sightseeing tour we found this by mistake. We first saw some shop front for wines and such until we realized it's a restaurant. The interiour looks more business like and modern but very inviting. The menu is simple but still have a lot of choice, the waiting staff was very attentive and professional. The food was great and effortable. We really liked it!

“A serious restaurant, worth a tram ride to Belém”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This was one of the best meals we had during our winter in Lisbon. The restaurant is on the tram line (no.15) from the city centre, first stop after the Cultural Centre in Belém.

The cover offered a flavoured butter and tapenade with bread. The menu offered many interesting choices but we decided on bacalhau (salt cod) dishes, both very good, with glasses of excellent white wine recommended by the server. The service is unobtrusive; about right.

RECOMMENDED for high quality cooking and fine wines. The restaurant is open every day.

“summertime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Now, in the middle of Sweden there are 70 cm of snow and rather cold. Then we can pick up our memory of a fabulous lunch at this excellent restaurant. Beautiful, silent atmospher, very nice service, wunderful food - we must go there again sometime! Also bought a bottle of Mouchao 2006 from Casa Branca, Sousel. The owner recommended it and she was, of course, right. Very tasteful!

“Try This Beautiful Restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

We had lunch at this restaurant after reading the reviews in trip advisor. Although it was off the beaten track in Belem, we were stunned by the beauty of both the decor, and the graciousness of the owners. The food was lovely, a bit of Manhattan in Lisbon! I had the Grouper with Pumpkin and it was perfectly cooked and delicious, my husband had the Cuttlefish with pasta,black ink sauce, wonderful. While portions are small, they were adequate. This newly opened restaurant also has a gorgeous shop filled with the best wines and port selections of Portugal. A visit will not disappoint.
