We happened upon this restaurant by chance, having intended to go elsewhere, and found that we were the first customers as they reopened following the Covid lockdown. We're very glad we visited.
It's a cosy and stylish little restaurant, specialising in tapas-style dishes, with friendly...efficient service and excellent food. We worked our way through vegetarian tapas, to cheeses, fish and then meat tapas - varied and beautifully cooked and presented. The tuna with spicy orange sauce was particularly good. Also very good was the selection of wines, including half bottles (which more establishments should have). Very clean and sufficient space between tables and diners. Great value too.
We live across the river in Almada but we'll definitely be back and wish the owners all the luck in their reopening.More

Thank you very much for your comment! We believe that it will give us luck in this new phase.
We hope you will be able to visit us soon to taste our new delicacies.
Amazing food, friendly and helpful staff! cheap and traditional although in this area the other restaurants are really touristic and the food is awful. I highly recommend the smoked mussels and the cinnamon cake!
I don't really understand why this place is getting such great reviews. We chose to eat here because their set menu had 4 different types of fish, though it was a bit pricey we thought it would be worth it because of the variety, but...little did we know... They served us four types of CANNED fish. We paid 30 euros for canned fish... There was no mention of canned fish on the menu, but in retrospect, I guess we could have made a connection with the cans on display at the back of the restaurant. I don't think they even have a stove, grill or oven in the kitchen, just a microwave to heat up soup and canned chickpeas for salad. Would not recommend. You can get delicious, freshly grilled fish at a restaurant nearby, for 8 or 9 euros.More
Right next to our apartment in no. 28, we thought this restaurant was worth trying, and WOW were we right! Simply superb food, a nice selection of wines, very reasonable prices by local standard (and ridiculously cheap by Australian standards). Our experience was made all...the more memorable by our lovely wait-person, Andrea. Our favourites (we had them twice!) were the honeyed mustard mackerel, the salted cod with cornbread, chick peas and red peppers, and the minted peas with sun-dried tomato and smoked ham. Very simple, soooo delicious and expertly prepared and presented. Thank you Andrea for making it a special evening - twice! Anne and PhillipMore
Unfortunately, it was still too early for a full dinner, but for some "petiscos" (in Spanish they are called tapas) there was room. This very tiny place shouldn't actually be recommended since it will be run over by people. I found it by accident, walking...away of the tourist crowd, which nowadays is barely possible.
A couple of tables in the interior, a small typical menu, a small integrated wine-shop with an excellent choice, a very few tables for two outside in the narrow alley, thats it,
No, there is one more - the smile of the owner comes for free.
A place on has to visit to have seen Lisbon - if one doesn't care for the new uppperclassy, spiffy kind of restaurants.More
