Right in the middle of the water - we had a sales event with 140 people - cool space - beautiful decor - incredible location - we loved it! The prices are great and the location incredible.

Terrible service at an excellent location. I have been in many restaurants in Portugal and abroad, but I have never had such bad service as here, and it is not the first time. They frequently brought different food than ordered. For lunch, never waited less...than one hour. Today,only three tables were occupied after lunch. We waited 20 minutes to get two Colas. Today, the waiter felt sorry for the waiting tine. Her argument was that the bartender was talk into someone else!!!!! Why do we still come back to this place?More

Stopped here for a drink and a lunch snack on our way to Belem Tower. It is beautifully situated on the waterfront with spectacular views across the river and towards the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge. The menu ranged from snacks to full meals, very...reasonably priced. You can chill in a deck chair in the sun or sit in the shade. Loads of space when we were there. Entrance at the side where the huge round balls are, not on the gangway. Totally recommend.More

Nicely done and somewhat upmarket restaurant and art gallery. Nan made pond surrounds it from most sides. Nice place to relax.

One of the best places and service in town. We had such a great time, the starters are yummy and if you never tried a fantastic Portuguese meal you should definitely try it! There you can have the most delicious Duck and a perfect Tune....Wines are great, the view is breath-taking and the service is incredible high level,(Diogo and André are just awesome). The deserts are crazy... I wish I could give it 1000 stars. I am absolutely coming back!!!!More

It was one of the worst restaurants in terms of service we have been to. We had to wait more than an hour to have our lunch served, and when the food finally came it was lukewarm. After the first 40 minutes of waiting we...tried calling a waiter several times ( by pressing the button on the table) and waiving, but nobody even cared to come and tell us what is going on. We asked to speak to a manager twice, but again- no manager, nothing. The only good thing about the restaurant is its location. But food and service- just plain bad.More

We had a celebratory lunch there, 6 people nicely seated around a circular table. Very nice staff, professional and accomodating. The food was a combination of nice looking dishes (e.g. octopus) and substandard ones (e.g. entrecôte was tough and tasteless). Desserts were uninspired and average....In sum, today the food did not do justice to this beautiful location. Hope it gets better .....More

Due to its proximity to the cultural hot spots in Belém, we weren’t sure it would be as good as it looks. We were wrong. The restaurant, and bar see a lot of footfall in the day, but the evening was relatively quiet. The staff...were polite and professional. The food was very very good. Starters of sardines and spicy meat empada’s (excellent), followed by grouper and king prawns (beheaded by the chef), and closed off with a chocolate (virtual) soufflé, and Almond bebincue. Add some local red wine, and be presented with a 30% reduced bill as I’d booked by Tripadvisor, and it rounded off a really good meal. Location is great, eat outside, enjoy the view. Definitely worth visiting.More

I was not expecting much from this resturant being in prime tourist location on the harbour and right next to the museums, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was elegantly presented, however for me it is all about the flavour and the food...was light, fresh and packed with flavour of the main ingredient be it chicken or the octopus which was a standout. Now Octopus can have the consistency of a squash ball if overcooked, but their octopus was tender, succulent and full of fresh flavour. The waiters were helpful bi-lingual and very accommodating being able to explain the menu and ingredients, with a particulary good recommendation of white Alvarinho to complement the dishes, and the price was very very reasonable £12 for a bottle or £.5 a 200ml glass. It would be easy to dismiss this gem as a tourist trap, however yes the views and location are great however the quality and value of the food is even better, highly recommended.More
