Table for five, after a 20 minute wait, great service, good selection on the menu, good wine list, and a nice digestive. Be aware they throw down a lot of appetizers you did not order and will have to send them back or enjoy them...More

We ordered steak medium rare, it came well done. To their credit they changed it straight away and made a better attempt at medium rare, but it was low quality meat badly cooked. The waiter was pleasant. This is not the place for steak.

Some prices on the menu posted outside are lower than on the menu inside the restaurant. Waiters will try and trick you into buying expensive starters by putting a plate of cheese and bread in front of you. If you send it back, it will...More

The best part of our dinner were the boiled potatoes. Really weird that they give you some week old appetisers on arrival for which they show you the price list. Dry bread - 2,90€.

We stopped in for afternoon glass of wine and immediately presented with a platter of appetizers which we refused. Server gave the impression we were wasting his time. Had to ask for wine list (huge book) but only 3-4 available by glass. Asked for the...More

This was easily the worst place we ate in Lisbon. It was also the most expensive. Sharp practice abounds. The server puts a large plateful of various nibbles on the table without being asking and every plateful gets breathed over by the guests before they...More

Believe the other reviews. Pretty bad everything, service, setup, etc. My wife ordered a tuna steak and ended up in the hospital that night food poisoned. The tuna steak looked pretty suspicious and we asked the waiter if it was alright according to his opinion....More

Went here on a rainy night. Waiters were very friendly and helped us choose the menu. My daughter was not very hungry and had an omelette. I ordered a sea bass. Food was excellent and wine was nice as well. The poached peach in port...More

This is a classic case of should have read Trip Advisor! As per other reviews be aware of the sharp practice of bringing a load of starters and saying they were optional! We hadn't ordered them of course! Gin & tonics very expensive. Main course...More
