We were there celebrating a birthday, so we decided to take the set menu for groups. That included a number of portuguese "tapas", drinks (including wine), dessert and coffee. The ambiance was nice, the wine and food were ok, but not worth their price to start with. The service was correct at the beginning, but as the restaurant was filling... More

Stumbled on this restaurant by accident whilst wandering round the back streets near Cais Do Sodre. It looked nice and the menu interesting so we booked for later. The food was quite simply fabulous, we gave a fairly jumbled order of several tapas which arrived in stages, perfectly matched, everything cooked to perfection. Very reasonably priced too.

The food was ok, but for the price you'll have to pay, you can a find a much better place with the same kind of food. Not worth the visit if you have to be selective

This restaurant was recommend by the owner of our rental apartment. We tried half of the menu (shrimps, champignons, chicken stew, chicken wings, aspargus, beef, fish pancakes) but didn't really liked anything to be honest. We send the chicken stew back which was not a problem at all. The staff was very friendly, but unfortunately I don't understand the hype... More

We stopped here after stumbling across it in a quiet square. Situated minutes walk from the station was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle for a nice coffee and quiet half hour. Cant comment on food but had tapas not cheap but tasty but the place was spotless and staff happy and helpful.

Friendly service with a wide range of tapas. Atmosphere is relaxed with live guitar player and views out onto the plaza. Recommend the prawns and goats cheese with caramelised onions. Definite must if you are wanting to sample some amazing tapas.

Thanks to the TripAdvisor reviewers who reported on this place, or we would never have found this gem. It is a tiny restaurant that serves tapas (small plates), but they put overflow guests at tables outside in the square. The food is really inspired, and the ambiance is hip and stylish. Very good service, great wine recommendations, and a "take... More
