“Excellent experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We ate there 3 times and had a good experience every time! Contrasting it with other local restaurants we thought the service, the menu selection and the food itself were exceptionally good and fairly priced. No complaints what so ever!

We will certainly go back again!

“Was fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Nice spot that was near our hotel and close to the metro, which was needed to get to the Sporting futbol game. The food was fine, big selection of fish. I went with the octopus and it was tasty. This is listed as a Spanish restaurant, however it all seemed Portuguese to me.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Nothing special, although it was worth the price. If you look better, you can find better in Lisabon.

“Nice seafood and wine. Beautiful old building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

Lisbon and seafood goes really well. We had a very nice food in Cervejaria Real with a outstanding old architecture. If you are around Rato station I recommend.

“Excellent fresh fish!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Dinner this night, was later than usual, and we decided to roam in a different direction than other nights. The one that caught our eye, was this one. It had a lot of people mingling around outside, smoking by the door. As we walked in, there was a wide display case with an assortment of fresh whole fish. Just this alone told us we had come to the right place. As soon as we were seated, the waiter brought us a plate of salami and two bowls of different seafood salads -- one was an octopus salad with onion and red sweet peppers in oil and vinegar, cold. The other, also cold, were mussels, also "sprinkled" with raw onion and pepper bits. This, too, was marinated. We, Americans, think of this as a nice touch on the part of the restaurant -- bringing us food before we even ordered anything. But, as we found, although we didn't mind it that much really (if we didn't feel like eating it, we'd send it back), the restaurand charged us 4.50 and 5.50 euros, respectively (the salami we sent back), which is like $12 before even ordering dinner. But our dinner was delicious. Each of us got a whole fish. Husband a sea bass, and I had Bream. We split them both. Perfect with the local white wine.
This restaurant must be written up in some guide books because nearby there was a group of perhaps 20 people. I must add, however, that this size group did not diminish the service we received. It added to the interest, as far as people-watching goes.
