New management and new interior . Very nice menu and dishes as well as kind staff. For nicer weather an ample terrace. On the other side is a cafe/informal setting. Really enjoyed our meals and desserts.

This was our favorite restaurant in Lisbon. Beautifully situated alongside a park, we enjoyed sitting outside and taking in the environment. The menu has a lot to offer - both food and wine. The service was terrific - both times we went and with different...servers. This restaurant is off the beaten path, but certainly worth a detour!More

In a nice neighbourhood, food was ok, the service was shocking. The older waiter was unfriendly and rude about where we can sit. Although it was close to our apartment, we won’t go back there again.

Lovely neighborhood bistro with traditional Portuguese food. It gets crowed - especially outside - so make a reservation for both lunch or dinner if you want to eat on the patios.

This was the first place we found after checking into our apartment. Fantastic service and great food. It was a late lunch, pulled pork roll, chips, the smashed eggs, pork and eggs on chips and for the vegetarian tempura green beans. Really enjoyed the food...and the location, next to a lovely little park. Reasonably priced.More

We went here for dinner just after we checked into our apartment. The food was amazing, and the typical Portugese Bitoque was one of the best we had the entire trip. The prices are good, and the service is great. Make sure to try out...one of there deserts as well!More

Amazing!! Not what I expected at all, I thought it would be average food but I was wrong! I had the ‘Atum Braseaso’ (Braised Tuna) and it was high quality and delicious!

We got a table inside as a walk-in. Quirky menu. Reasonably priced wine. Prawns as starter. 7 jumbo ones with a fantastic sauce. Lisbon codfish didn’t look much when it arrived but very tasty and filling. Well worth a visit.

Lunch - ordered prawns and octopus. Both were good; octopus could have done with some olive oil just to soften the dish. This place just feels more like a business than a restaurant. Which is fine if you’re at a business lunch, but not memorable...if you’re a tourist. I’d go back, but for someone only in Lisbon a few days or a week, there’s more exciting and interesting choices.More

Excellent service by owner and very good kitchen. We arrived before the restaurant was full. Reservation made a couple of hours before arrival. Fair prices and excellent food. Had 2 dinners here, will have more certainly.

We waited for about 45 minutes in the restaurant with three other tables filled. When we asked the waiter if they were short staffed, he said they weren’t. The wine and beer servings were niggardly, and I had to ask a second time for my...glass of wine. When dinner finally arrived, mine was lukewarm, and my partner’s was steaming like crazy, and far too hot to eat. Once he was able to eat it, he found that the black rice was burned on the bottom, and stuck to his plate. I had to ask a second time to receive my side dish of sautéed vegetables. Once they finally arrived, they were room temperature. I ordered a second glass of wine because the first one was so small. I had to ask a second time to receive the second glass. I told the waiter that my food was cold, and he just looked at me, then turned and left, not offering to return it to the kitchen to be heated. The staff were rude, when we were finally able to get their attention. Another man came and asked the table next to us if their meal was okay, but ignored us. I really don’t know why both food and service were so entirely unsatisfactory, but they were. It could have ruined our final night in Lisbon, but really, the place and its employees weren’t worth getting upset over. We went elsewhere for dessert, and will certainly never return to this place again.More
