We were recommended to eat here by a Portuguese friend and we were not disappointed.
We were temporarily exhausted having climbed three floors to the heaven that awaited. We ate the plethora of delicacies in front of us (ham, cheeses, octopus, etc) and suddenly realised that we did not need a starter at all.
So straight into the entree's it was. I had the grilled sole with spinach and roast potatoes, while Maggie chose the John Dory fillets with tomato rice. The sole was as fresh and delicious as could be but Maggie's John Dory was unexpectedly presented in a tempora batter and was slightly dry but nevertheless very nice. We finished sharing the Madeirean pineapple - we've no idea where the pineapple came from but it was lovely and the combination with Madeira was excellent.
We had heard reports of expensive wines but we saw the opposite - in fact we found the value excellent having started with a modest Planalta Blanc prior to elevating to a waiter recommended bottle of Pera- Manca Vinho Blanco 2010 - a delight.
We will recommend this restaurant to any friends visiting Lisbon - and such excellent value for some of the freshest fish we have tasted.

Great food, great wine and the owner is always around to make sure everything keeps perfect. Make reservations to avoid the line.

Surprise to know that the restaurant is in the inner road and with simple small entrance. The look is like usual restaurant but the interior is great. The moment you step in, the environment and atmospheres is very welcoming . We did not book but it's early about 6.30pm for dinner. The waiter took us upstairs and at first we thought its was not a good choice location but half hour later, we realized that we were sitting in the middle of a good pack restaurant.

We had good choice of seafood like grille lobster and crab. Not to miss the excellent Presuntos,
We had been couple of Lisbon seafood restaurant but i prefer the soup, main course but the way chinese eat style with hand and plate shifting and sharing here and there.
If you like wine, their choice is excellence. If you are beginner try the Portugal white wine reasonably price.
I would say the price is average but don't expect to be cheap when you order good staff but worth your evening outing.
Enjoy!

I've been in this restaurant together with customers from Portugal.
They have paid so I have no idea about the prices.
In any case we have taken a big dish of seafood (lobsters, shrimps), and the quantity was so generous that we had enough. Excellent wine, while the service, altough very fast, is a bit rough for the place.
Moreover the density of table is crazy, and the restaurant (they say) is always full
