Traveling in Spain and Portugal we got a little spoiled with the quality of meal that could be had for a reasonable price. For example in Barca we had a feast of a tasting menu for ~110E apiece. This place was highly rated and we wanted to give it a try. It is a quirky space that almost looks like... More

It looks a little "shaky" from the outside and there is a load of building taking place around it; but half of Lapa is being rebuilt. The place has loads of character, a great place to spend some time enjoying excellent food and quietly talking the day away. Service is excellent, interesting menu try something different, the wine list has... More

Who doesn't like to be greeted with a glass of sparkling wine? Since i didn't have a reservation, i got a table in the garden - probably the most charming outdoor terrace in Lisbon. The food is great, the ingredients are traditional to Portuguese cuisine but the execution is modern and sophisticated. I started with the mackerel ceviche, a pure... More

The restaurant is divided in separate rooms, but it can still be noisy especially when it is getting later, or with larger groups. But the staff is very friendly, english speaking, and the food is good, no surprises. Not the best in Lisbon, but not a bad choice either.

This restaurant is well worth going out of your way to find! Everything on the menu is excellent, and the cod is absolutely a stand-out. We spent 5 nights in Lisbon and this was the best meal we had. The interior of the restaurant is charming, but if you can get a table on the patio, do it. The outdoor... More

We booked the restaurant for our wedding anniversary. We were greeted with a glass of bubbly and led to our table in the courtyard garden. As starters we had the fried baby squid and the smoked cheese turnip and pear salad, for mains the beef and the octopus served with a very nice white wine from the Douro region and... More
