A lovely atmosphere in the Barrio Alto streets, and we were tempted in by the menu that offered a range of flavours wider than your standard 'grilled meat and fries'. We opted for the chicken with saffron pasta, and the beef, bacon and potato dish. The meat was disappointingly overdone, although the flavours of the pasta were good. I would've... More

We managed to snag a seat outside for the both of us. This was our last evening in Lisbon. Our waitress was great and we didn't wait too long for the food. I got a steak with a cheese sauce on it and my friend got stuffed squid I believe. Both were delicious. The waitress recommended the chocolate cake and... More

We were a party of 10 guys. All ordered different things and we had a great time. The food was fantastic. Tasca style traditional Portuguese but without the grease. The service was excellent and friendly.we all had a great time.

Andrea was our server and took great care of us, speaking English and Portuguese. The food was good and the vinho verde really good. It's on a nice side street of the bairro alto so it's not jammed but it is popular. Go earlier for better seating options.

We had a really nice lunch in this restaurant. We both ordered meat and were very happy with our selections. One was on a hot stone and very nice and tasty. The other so tender that you hardly had to chew. The waitress was lovely, she answered all our questions with a big smile and suggested the best options. We... More

I've been visiting Lisbon for 30 years and I have to say that this is the worst restaurant I can recall eating in while there. I ordered swordfish - got a thin slice of something very unappetising with some greasy vegetables: I guessed from the texture and lack of flavour the fish had been taken out of a packet and... More
