Great Portuguese food in a traditional environment. Fish dishes are big and very well done. They master the cod and the rice with Lamprey. Service is great and you enjoy great waitresses who recommend you what is good for you despite losing money. Prices are really good for what you eat.

We absolutely dislike this place: we took a bad soup (bad smell of old chicken and overcooked pasta), an awful salad (there was too much mayonnaise and shrimps were not cleaned because guts were not removed) and disappointing grilled fish (too much garlic, too much oil, too much raw onion). The staff was even worse: waiters seemed to be more... More

Having visited Lisbon on over 10 different occasions I am very pleased with the quality of food and the amiable service, however on this occasion it was completely different. I visited this restaurant on Thursday the 7th of Jan for dinner as I was staying within close proximity of the restaurant. Upon arrival I was met with an elderly waiter... More

Once we arrived and were seated one of the waiters recommended a dish to us. Didn't feel welcomed at all. We didn't pick the dish he advised and since then was extremely impolite, did not acknowledge us for the rest of our time there and when serving us food literally just dumped the food on our table and walked off....

I like to explore the back streets around my hotel when in cities abroad. This made me aware of Cacho Dourado and I was glad of my research when other evening dining options had fallen through. Cacho Dourado turned out to be a sizeable place and a hive of activity, obviously popular with locals and tourists alike. Easy to see... More

Staff is unfriendly, food has no flavour and they try to charge you for food you did not order. They put small appetizers, bread and cheese on your table without asking. When you touch them you (over)pay. If you are in the area on sunday, we advise you to prefer burger king over this horrible place.

Quite a wide selection of options on the menu. Don't hesitate to ask the waiter for suggestions, I ended up with the Dourado (Sea Bass) and it was excellent

Very nice location near Marques de Pombal. The room is large and the service is fast and kind. The clams were excellent and the grilled fish (garoupa - grouper) as well! They also serve the giant crab (sapateiro). To conclude a very tasty "flan".

This restaurant was located next to our hotel and after a first day going up and down this lively city we felt the jet lag on our shoulders so we decided to check it out. The place was packed with locals and a large group of foreigners. The staff recommended us with some Sword fish on the grill so we... More
