Can't complain about the food that was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately the staff was not nice at all.

Started with drinks at the bar. Fab atmosphere and lovely decor. Had dinner in the taverna. Tapas style good. Some dishes better than others but still tasty. Service a little sullen but would still recommend a visit. Next time would book into restaurant instead.

Don’t trust the positive feedbacks, uneatable food, small appetizer dishes, around 10 euros per mini-plate. I will leave here the menu too, hope you will spend your money in a better way. The place was not that bad, a bit crowded maybe. I don’t know...More

We came here on the recommendation of a local and were mildly disappointed. The best dishes were the picanha and the crusty cod. Other dishes had overpowering flavors and weren't good value compared to what you can find elsewhere in Lisbon. The place is probably...More

We were able to get a table for two on a Saturday evening by booking the day before, which is amazing. But do make a reservation, it was fully booked on a previous Thursday as well. The restaurant complex is huge and not very cosy,...More

All in all a good experience. Great food (but not extraordinary), cozy setting and good value for money. The biggest downside must be the (little too) rushed staff. We can recommend the baked cheese and the explosive olives.

Nice place but very busy. The food was good and tasty and a nice choice of wines. Personally I really loved the steak tartare!

In the taberna they do basically tapas, which are expensive, tiny portions but very, very good. Great noisy and buzzy atmosphere. The adjoining resto is smart and quieter, and more expensive. You are advised to make reservations since the place fills up quickly. Very obliging...More
