“Simple restaurant - good, but we can do the same at home”
Reviewed December 11, 2010

We read a review in Frommer and expected some genuine place with native Lisbon cooking. Instead we got fried fish (fresh and good, but no souse) with chips and roasted calamares (obviously from a freezer) - we may do it at home even better! No special atmosphere and service so-so

“Nice local food, good prices, friendly service”
Reviewed September 2, 2009

This place seemed like an oasis after walking past all the touts in Rua das Portas de Santo Antao. This restaurant is in a quieter part of the street opposite a theatre. It has a small outside seating area.
We had the traditional local seafood rice (which we found well priced compared to some other restaurants in the area). The food was tasty and the service was good so it was an altogether pleasant experience.
