Tripadvisor is debasing the value of its brand by handing out its stickers too easily ... we too were persuaded by the Tripadvisor sticker (and not checking online) ... service was friendly, but food strictly pedestrian, and not worth the cost. Disappointing.

Don't come near this restaurant! We sat here after seeing the "trip advisor sticker" on the door but be sure that this place is horrible. The food was bad, the service was awful and they asked us to pay for a steak that was not possible to eat!! The chef came out and yelled at us and we are very... More

Unfortunately ended up here on first night in Lisbon after failing to get into another restaurant. Its a horrible place - waiters pushing needless 'first courses' at year. I had an absolutely disgusting fish and pepper stew - over cooked, over salted and a very rough glass of red wine and for this unpleasantness we paid 30 euros a head.... More

Trust me, choose another restaurant in the area. The service is so terrible that it is not worth the try. The chief of waiters (the one with fat belly and hair on side) spoke to us like dogs, he moved us from one table to another without apologizing, we wait ages for our dishes... We went to other restaurants in... More

Good food, friendly staff, a bit pricey for this kind of place and quality. A little bit of a tourostish kind of place. Careful with the couvert

Tipical Portuguese cuisine, good prices, very good wine chart. In the heart of Bairro Alto. See the pictures.

We had our first restaurant meal in Portugal in Alfaia. It was a great and welcoming experience. The waiters were friendly and made sure to explain that the couverts they place on the table (bread, cheeses, ham, olives) are optional (paid!) additions to the meal. The food was very appetizing. After the meal we were surprised with a complimentary taste... More

The restaurant is in a touristy area, so always quite busy. The food is good but not spectacular and the service is friendly Maybe a bit expensive in relation to the quality

We walked into the place as it looked really popular and was in an area we'd been recommended to eat! They try to shove a load of starters on you and although they warn you you have to pay I don't like that they put everything out. What a waste! The food we ordered was OK. A bit salty and... More
