Just perfect. You enter this relaxed atmosphere and the host takes your coats and invites you to decide where you would be most comfortable. You enter into a subtle black and red interior with a quote by a famous portuguese poet on the wall that says our dreams are what matter... The server comes and almost knows what you should get... we get the marinated salmon in a wonderful array on a plate and mix it with the little cute breads and wash it down with a white wine - esporao. Then, really only one thing to get on the menu - bacalao. Dusted with cornmeal, quick fried in olive oil, roasted in an oven and served over spinach and white potatoes. Hot, amazing, tasty, plenty. This is romantic with a focus on the food and atmosphere. perfect. 85 euros total.

My wife and I had a great dinner here on our vacation in lisbon. The inside is very unique and provided great ambiance. All of the food was very good and the waiter was very friendly and made our night memorable. After dinner Definitely order some aguardente (sp?) aka fire water. The presentation was awesome as he lit it on fire.

Just need to start by saying that the atmosphere here was warm and inviting and the waitstaff were very capable and friendly. They also recommended a terrific wine to go with our mains and made us feel right at home.

The food, however, was well and truly below par - although the menu appeared enticing and reasonably priced, both of us were surprised at how little resemblance our meals bore to the menu's descriptions. I ordered the "magret with foie gras and potato," only to find that the foie gras was nowhere to be found and the potato was mediocre mush. My guest opted for the "bird game, chorizo and risotto" and was similarly disappointed when she was given a deep-fried, dagwood dog-esque mystery meat served with two tablespoons of buttery, undercooked rice (I suppose this was the risotto.)

The staff, when informed of our lacklustre experience, were very apologetic and only too happy to relieve us of the cost of one of our entrées. This brings me to my last gripe, which was with the hidden cost of the breads and dips plate that we were presented with as soon as we were seated. Perhaps it is a norm in Portuguese dining culture but for English-speaking visitors it is an unfamiliar concept to be charged for food which we have not ordered. You will be charged 2.50 euros for the breads plate per head.

All in all, despite the warm and enjoyable ambiance that Sacramento had to offer, the food did not deliver.

Great food, great service. wonderful location. I´d suggest the "Bacalhau a Brás". For dessert, anything envolving chocolate is absolutely divine. The wine list is also very representative of what Portugal has to offer. No other country has a such a high cost/satisfaction ratio...

Delicious Pork and Codfish. The best sangria I ever had. The desserts were so cute. Plus, the waitess is an elegant dancer for sure!
