I've been here about 4-5 times now, they make the best Francesinha in Lisbon, the Red Dragon is my personal favourite. They tend to get very busy after 20.30, so it's better to come early to get seats.

Had several françesina in Portugal but here been the best. Very good for dinner with friends but suggest to reserve early because is always full. Good even for large groups and vegetarians

The service was slow, we were a large group and the restaurant was full, okay. The food (I don't like francesinha so I had the steak) was awful. the fries were completly raw and were scarse. It was not so cheap to leave hungry
