This is located next to the cinema museum. It is not as easy to find as other restaurants. We were with a large group that they were able to service well. I had s chicken dish that was very good.

Fixed menu. It means no point in re-visiting but worth a try. Perhaps s little overpriced for the quantity served, but at least you got to try more options. Pleasant environment and nice staff.

The Chimera is a small location, decorated to look (and be) cheap and old fashioned. This really bears some retro charme, e.g. some of the dining tables are old sewing machine tables with the pedalry still present. The staff plays music (Jazz, Portuguese and French...More

Great atmosphere, superb hospitality and delicious menu! And crazily cheap! You can't choose the menu. It's surprising but worth tasting! The organic wine is also worth trying.
