“Great quality and variety ! (octopus to lamb)”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

Octopus, Ham, Lamb, Fish, Lobster and a spectacular wine list!
You eat a lot and with great quality.
It has a somewhat picturesque style with photos of illustrious celebrities who have visited the place.

“tourists are welcomed ...."victims"”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

bad service makes you feel like a prey in a tourist trap...

of course we know about the starters which we have to pay for (if we decide to eat those) ...by the way,the ham was good
but how about having to discuss and argue with the waiter that you don't want to drink and pay for a 10 years old vintage port wine if you order a "normal" glass of porto tintho as aperitif.... well after this the waiter didn't show up for a while and the young owner took care of our table ....the paëlla was served by the initial waiter in a very unfriendly and unprofessional way (without presenting the dish) food was okay , but
nothing more....besides being expensive

“Quality and excellence”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The place is iconic in Lisbon. Great food with high quality and quantity. Staff very nice and attentive. Great for an informal dinner with friends or something more formal for business. They have several private rooms on first and second floor. It´s difficult to elect a speciality, but definately seafood. Highly recommended!

“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This restaurant was a recommendation from a taxi driver, and as ever this paid off handsomely. It is located next to one of the Elevadors which takes you up to a wonderful Jardim. We couldn’t get in the first night but made a booking after that. It was very busy with a mix of local people and tourists and has a lively atmosphere and great ambience. It specialises in fish (large tanks of them as you go in), but also caters for non-fish eating diners. The service, food and wine is superb and we had a fantastic night, a great find.

“very charming place”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

we went there just to eat something without any great expectations in our mind, havinh had a heavy breakfast we´were never hangry at all, but, what to do wiht the rest of the day , since we´ve been for the 4th time in wonderful land of Lisbon, beautiful and poetry line´s city.
so we tok a cab right to this restaurant, in a taxi city view, looking over one more time, but never getting any tired to see, all the beauty of that city. So, whem we arrived i´ve noticed a quasi domestic ambiance,with familiar and peculiar greatings of a nice mam' over hers 60s, just to enter and make ourselves confortable and at home.
we took the stairs, couse que room was already fully of locals, and that was an apreciated impression of mine when a get to arrive in a place to eat.
it´s a beautiful restaurant, we ask for aptizers,just ham of parma and some othsrs dishs, i forgot , but tha principal one was the portuguese steack, ohhh, my God!..we went to heaven in a minute, with frites
we had our bellis up..haha
with the breakfast and lunch, and all teh wine we´ve drunk...
all it´s left to say is about the wonderful personel, we were perfectly well served
i recomend it for everyone!
