What a discovery! We stopped there randomly and we found this place to be Amazing in terms of quality and creativity about good and cocktails. I can mention about the basilic cocktail which was fresh and sour, the pumpkin dessert with homemade whipped cream, marinated...tuna with avocado and mojito balls. Staff was so welcoming and smiling. Place was clean with nice and neat design. We'll definitely come backMore

We were on a short city break, wanting to sample the growing Lisbon gastronomy, without going to somewhere too pricey and intense, nor tourist target. This was perfect. Classy decor, great intelligent and engaging service, very reason prices for exquisite food. Real talent in the...kitchen. I pitched for cauliflower soup to start (an impulse choice as the waiter arrived!) it was superb, beautifully balanced flavours. My wife chose steak as a main, (worked well for me, I knew she’d give me a chunk) which was sublime, so tender and the sauce it came with was out of this world, I’d have been jealous but my octopus was equally stunning. Everything about the meal was done beautifully, atmosphere was creative and inviting. Loved it.More

Nice tapas restaurant next to funiculare. Great menu card with “petisco’s”, small dishes meant to be shared with others. Great service, excellent stocked bar.

I honestly found this place by seeing it on Google Maps in the neighborhood area we were staying in and clicking on it. I read some reviews and decided we needed to check it out. We followed other reviewer's advice and ordered the tuna tartare...and were not disappointed. We were expecting something like a ceviche but it was sort of a hybrid ceviche and poke flavor, with lime, avocado, and (I think) a little sesame oil. It was delicious. We also had the prawns which were HUGE and tasted like lobster. They were perfectly cooked and the sauce was delicious. We also tried the goat cheese in filo pastry and that was outstanding as well. My husband ordered a steak and he said it was cooked perfectly. We chatted with the owner a bit as we were there early on a Monday night and he was very friendly and told us a bit about the city. This restaurant was one of our two favorite meals in Lisbon and I highly recommend it! Get the tuna and the prawns.More

We were visiting Lisbon for a few days and staying quite near this restaurant. On entering we were made feel welcome. We ordered a selection of tapas with the prawns and chicken balls standing out. Paired with a local red wine and a cosy atmosphere...it made for a very enjoyable evening. The service was a little slow but it didn't detract from the overall experience. Recommended.More

Currently touring Portugal so visiting a few places. A friend recommended this one and we weren’t disappointed - one of the best restaurants we’ve visited. The unassuming entrance belies a brilliant establishment so don’t be put off! Lovely service, great atmosphere and stunning food. Get...there early, the tables are filled rapidly upon opening and people were turned away when we were there.More

We really enjoyed visiting this restaurant. We came in the evening to have some petiscos and a glass of wine. The place was quite full with multpile tables reserved. However, the staff was very friendly and they found a table available for us before one...reservation started. The food and wine were good and served with an honest smile :) Worth a recommendation!More

No. We came in after a day of sight seeing in jeans and a nice sweater. A very friendly place with great food. Only restaurant we went to twice.
