Good average with no pretensions food. Had the octopus and sardines. They were ok. It has a terrace and it's a plus.

Sloppy service and badly presented food with no attempt from the staff to be helpful accommodating our young daughter. We both had rice dishes one was cold and the other lukewarm & no condiments provided (salt, pepper, olive oil, lemon - nothing).

Disgusting dish with horrible presentation! Still they charge 12 euros for it. Please take it out from the menu. We were so envious of plates of food of the restaurant next door. All looked so delicious. We obviously made the wrong choice :(

The food was excellent. We were there as a couple and tried a variety of dishes. There wasn't a single one we didn't like. The wine was okay. This is kind of a hidden gem since the quality of the food you get for the price is great for the area of "Bairro Alto". Even the locals favor this restaurant... More

We had a warm welcome from Florets da cidade. The waiters were really kind with us and the food was perfect. We were a group of 30 peoples and no one was disappointed, every one was satisfied by this restaurant.

Lovely staff who worked very hard serving authentic food at a reasonable price. Don't go if you expect posh nosh but if you want nice food at a reasonable price a good find.

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
