Not the cheapest but given the competition locally, this is not a bad thing. Certainly cheaper than other "top" restaurants in other European cities. Service from Rafael was great and seafood was of very high quality. Ambience was good with suitable music and the room...More

Seafood right on the Praça do Comercio. Food was good, but it’s a bit pricey. Hassan (my waiter) was great and the service is good.

The look is great, but contents is disputable. We have the worst lobster bisque (the serving was spectacular) and little pieces of lobster saved the disaster. The most expensive plate (seafood) was disappointing too. Even the complimentary cherry liqueur didn’t save the situation ((((((

Good food, friendly service (thank you Hassan) and wonderful location. The tiger prawn risotto (new on the menu) was very good as was the sheep's cheese and chutney starter. A lovely place too for cocktails in the sun! Will definitely come back.

Cooking seafood fro frozen. Sauces are from a tomato can. Prices are accordingly high for the location and tourist clientele. No wonder there are NO Portuguese people eating there. Just be warned it does not worth the price or the view!!!

Yes, our wine was delicious too. The €18 bottle want available (mysteriously) so we ended up paying €26. Nice wine but incredibly overpriced for Lisbon and the quality of the restaurant. Do you work for the restaurant?
