It was my sister’s birthday and we were a group of 14. When we arrived to the restaurant we stayed inside and when the waiter came he didn’t even explain or gave us the drinks menu. Another waiter ( female)was asking everyone what they wanted...to drink after ordering the food. Since it was my first time I did not have a clue what to expect. I then question her how we should know what drinks we can order if the drinks are not displayed or visible anywhere. She then started mentioned what they had available without showing anything . After that the first waitress came again ( male with Brazilian accent ) and kept being very rude and not professional at all, giving stupid answers when questioning or asking something. I did not mention anything until the end when he brought free shots and my friend said to him : “I thought you were upset with us because of the way that you’ve been talking to us since the beginning” . He then said he did not have any problem and then I interfered and said that I did not like how he treated us and then he started saying that “ oh you are the only one complaining here so I think you are wrong , my daughter is the same age as you and I think you are wrong “. I then ended up the conversation and he left. The owner I think is the old lady named Gina, was super rude as well since they were supposed to close at 00:30 it was 23:40 and she was rushing us, almost kicking us out of the restaurant because she wanted to close, although there was more people outside and she did not said anything to them. Food is ok and the atmosphere is what makes people go back. As a portuguese living in England and used to this environment ( restaurant) they need to learn a lot because it is not acceptable the way they speak with their customers. I will not come back to this place.More

We went to A Gine because Rick Steves recommends it highly in his guidebook. We were not disappointed. It is a charming, homey restaurant, traditional family type place. We think we saw Gina sitting in the middle of the restaurant. After being seated we were...immediately offered a charcuterie plate, but we declined as we wanted to choose other dishes. I had the mixed grill which contained two split sausages, two ribs, and two thin slices of grilled meat, as well as a salad and pile of French fries. It was plenty of food, although I still had the biggest piece of flan in my life for dessert. My wife had the grilled salmon. The grilled fish and meat are excellent, very fresh. We shared a carafe of sangria which was fresh made. After the meal, our waiter offered us port and grappa on the house. He was very entertaining. He prepared the glass for the grappa by flaming some of it. It did make it very smooth and just a bit smoky. We left very satisfied. It probably was the best meal we had during a week in Portugal. It certainly was the best value.More

Be warned, portions at A Gina are large, although we found this to be the case all over Lisbon. Sharing might be an option. The food is traditional and well prepared, with an emphasis on grilled meats and fish -- all very fresh and all...delicious. Service was good, but better the earlier you go; this restaurant gets very busy as the evening advances. Lots of local patrons, so it felt like 'hometown' rather than 'tourist.'More

I just left the restaurant, and I had to air my frustrations. The restaurant is very cosy, the food was delicious, and for most of the evening my waiter was great and accommodating! However, as I arrived, the waiter placed a basket of bread and...a bit of cheese on the table. As I looked at him confused (I hadn't asked for anything yet), he said "do you not want it?" And I answered "oh sure. Looks great". I then ordered my actual food and while waiting for it, I ate maybe one piece of bread and a slice of cheese. By the end of the evening, when I went to pay the bill, I realized that I had been charged 8 euros for the bread and cheese, which I had barely touched. I had of course assumed that it was just like any other "free bread while waiting for your food"-appetizer. As I told my waiter this, he reacted very, very strongly, exclaiming that it was a business and that he had asked me if I wanted it! (Yes, after he had already placed it on my table out of the blue). I was stunned by the strong reaction, and just responded that it was fine, I would pay, but I had to say that it was not very good service and that they should inform guests that it cost money. The waiter was extremely offended, saying no, it was fine, he would delete it from the bill and was I happy now. I was not hsppy. I was saddened by the whole situation, and tried to apologize. Attempting to say that I was sad it ended this was, since the food had been delicious and he had been a great waiter until then. However, the waiter interrupted me before I got very far, and basically yelled at me that he always delivered good service and that I had said I wanted the bread. I tried to interrupt to say I was sorry about the whole situation, but he yelled (actually yelled) at me again, and stormed off. I was left upset and tried not to cry while I paid the bill. For reasons outside the scope of this review, I had had a tough few days and was maybe a little over-sensitive, but I ended up leaving the restaurant with tears in my eyes, trying my best not to burst out crying in the middle of the street.More

As before this gem of a restaurant tucked away from the Main Street behind some theatres continues to provide very good portuagese food. Recently the restaurant has had a makeover but am delighted that the food and service are as good as ever.

This restaurant is situated adjacent to a car park but it looks, as though it has a nice outside area for in the summer. We went in January. It is very welcoming and Carlos was great.It is traditional food and well explained. The portions were...rather large but it was great to see the pride people took in their product. We enjoyed our meal here because the ambiance was good.More

I came to this restaurant with a fairly large group of people. The place was claustrophobic and not suited for a restaurant, having to pass through multiple doorways to reach my table. The restaurant doesn’t have WiFi. I ordered lamb chops to share. They were...almost raw on the inside and the french fries were hot but limp, as if they were just reheated. The waiters were nice and the mango mousse was good. I wish this was an one time occurrence.More

I cannot believe that this restaurant was recommended to me. It is not worthy of any recommendation and is situated in a somewhat dodgy backstreet far away from everything. So, wondering why it was recommended to me, I entered the restaurant in the hope that...it would be something special. The interior is shockingly plain and small. I’m not sure one could call it a Restaurant, more like a dingy old pub.More

We just chose this restaurant as it was very close to our hotel as the weather was not great . I would say it’s a family hotel and caters for children but not much space for children to run about .
