This is a great place for people in the know. It is tucked away and seems unassuming from the outside but as soon as you step in it is like taking a step back in time to the glory days of the newspaper journalists and the traveling correspondents of yesteryear. The place has a great courtyard where you can sit... More

We had a wonderful meal here, and the setting was lovely - it was so hot but the garden was shady and romantic. I had the steak which was one of the best I've ever had - that was once the waitress had got the order right. And I was told the lamb burger was also very good, though not... More

When you arrive, you're greeted with a glass of sparkling wine. Service was excellent. We did the tasting menu and everything was delicious. I loved the duck magret on arugula salad. It was very good value and the wines were great too. It was lovely to sit outside in the garden, the perfect peaceful place for a conversation.

The chef is Brazilian and he creates an unique menu. Everything there is amazing! The staff very nice, the installation very cozy. The price not bad at all for the quality of the food.

You get buzzed in the door here. Reservations are essential. The best seating, weather permitting, is their outdoor courtyard. Service is casual but prompt and helpful. The wine list features interesting wines mostly from the local areas which was interesting. Food is, as is so often the case in Portugal, tasty and well thought out. Maybe they miss occasionally, I... More

Everything about this restaurant was lovely.

The food is amazing and they have a wide selection of Portuguese classics as well as french influenced. The staff was amazing and sweet! Perfect... More

We thoroughly recommend this restaurant, we sat inside, however there is a beautiful hanging garden seated area and balcony outside. This is the only time I have ever felt the need to make a review, just to say the decor and atmosphere are great, relaxed and the food of course, and wine, are fantastic.
