Our waiter was a joy, and recommended how to order, which was appreciated. The toast with goat cheese and honey was delicious, as was the chicken livers, pan glazed with apples. The fried rabbit had run out so we opted for the veal rib..... Also...More

We went on a Tuesday night as our walking food tour guide recommended it. Got there just after 8 without a booking ... and it was full. They also own the wine bar next door so asked if we would be happy to sit in...More

Had dinner at this place twice and must confess that the 2nd time wasn’t as good as the first time, although we ordered exactly the same dishes. Good regional food, well seasoned, but inconsistent. Chocolate mousse is good especially for those who like it with...More

Reservations are recommended. This is a small restaurant that serves a fairly unique menu, in addition to having unmatched dishware on the tables. While the dishes were tasty, be prepared to wait because each dish is made upon order. The pork cheeks (very good) took...More

There are so many of these small culinary pleasure palaces in Lisbon, this place is no exception. Small, intimate and of course superb food. Another restaurant where the owners take great pride in both the food they serve and where the food is sourced. Don't...More

This restaurant has fast and very polite service. Food portions are a bit small compared to the price -especially the ”tapas” portions. Taste of food is good but not exceptional. Desserts are nice. Overall a bit costly place.
