We ended up here after intending to go to the sister restaurant up the road which we found to be closed. The staff were very friendly and recommended ordering 4/5 dishes to share, like a Portuguese tapas. We had the fish soup, ham cheese and flava bean toast, stuffed mushrooms and the crevettes. All were great with really strong flavours... More

Came here solo for dinner as in staying close by. Felt entirely welcomed and comfortable, plus the food was so good I could have wept. I recommend the tuna and sweet potato!

We were four at the table, the service was excellent, the dishes are to be shared and were all very good (mushrooms with eggs, the "prego do lombo", codornizes) and the bill, well, for the food and for the ambience it was fair.

We went to Petiscaria Ideal as a friend recommended us to go there and the whole evening was above our expectations. We loved the tuna which was recommended to us from the very attentive service staff. Looking forward to come back again.

We were recommended to try this restaurant and were not disappointed. All dishes are designed to share. Close tables so we met some interesting people. Great place to eat if you are a single traveller.

The owner of our apartment recommended here as a "fun place to eat great food" and she was right. A long narrow restaurant, there are several communal tables as well as some for people who like their own company. Service was bright and amiable. And the menu quickly explained - many sharing plates. They had got around the problem of... More

If you secretly dream of randomly walking pass a small, family-owned and genuine restaurant where the food is cheap and still blows your mind, you've come to the right place. The cliché of southern European countries comes true here, where you are seated wherever they find the place and on whatever chair/stool available. The food is amazing, served in tapas... More

We came here by coincidence on our first night in Lisbon, dropped in and managed to get a table for a group of seven friends. The atmosphere is lively, warm and friendly and the food was delicious! We ordered 9-10 small dishes for the seven of us, and some good wine. We enjoyed all of the dishes but must say... More

Small and very comfortable little restaurant, where you may share a table with other diners but for sure share dishes amongst yourselves. Food meant for sharing. Interesting and varied menu. Excellent wait staff - great with recommendations! You don't want to miss this restaurant!
