“Kitschy, charming & affordable!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Had a great lunch here about 6 six years ago & then forgot where it was! Found it again this trip and went back for dinner on our last night in Lisbon. Family-run and traditional with tons of football and Fado memorabilia all over the walls, it's kitschy & charming (the restaurant is really old and the building even older!).
Had the fried sole (it was ok) and the veal with mushrooms (excellent! my wife said it was her best meal in Lisbon this year). The bread was great & the vinho verde ice-cold!
Note: seating is on wide stools not chairs so grab a table in the corner so you have the wall at your back! Also note: (I see this all the time so I have to say it again)....in Portugal as a RULE, bread, cheese, olives, fish pate are placed on your table as soon as you sit down whether you've ordered it or not. If you don't want them, simply slid the plates to the edge of the table and/or ask the waiter to take them away. If you sample ANYTHING it will be added to your bill.

“Good Seafood Family Restaurant”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

If you are looking for a good family run restaurant that serves good value seafood, then this is the place to go. The house wine was pretty average, but hey what do you expect for 5 Euro for 0.5 l. Fish was excellent and the baby potatoes went down a treat. 56 Euro for 4 mains, bread and cheese starter, 05l wine and 2 beers. Can't complain about that.

“Super fish”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

A quaint football obsessed little restaurant that has probably been there forever. Had the cuttlefish that was one of the best I have tasted. Beautifully grilled. Accompaniments are a bit basic but its the fish you are here for. Vinho verde is a good price and being low alcohol, ideal for lunch. Will come again next visit!

“Good fish but the rest was poor”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Very tasty grilled fish but the rest...welll, average or poor. Tomato salad was tasteless, house wine almost undrinkable and the green beans of the side dish had a soapy aftertaste. Wouldn't reccommend.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We had been there following the recommandation of some freinds. We were almost the only clients. The food was very common but what was very disappointing was the manners of the owner as it looks as if this restaurant is a trap for tourists; When we found it that they billed things that we did not order, the owner was very brutal and unfreindly....a very bad experience
