This place is in a hidden and small street in Belem. We had an amazing baccalao there for lunch. If you sit beside the window and there's sun outside; prepare to get warm. Lovely food and lovely wine.

We began our meal with the salmon starter which we shared, they brought it out on two separate plates which was a really nice touch. The combination of salmon sashimi with some sort of soy sauce reduction, rocket and lichees was so simple yet absolutely delicious!
For the mains, the grouper was tasty, although a bit boring, especially compared to the wonderfully prepared and arranged octopus.

Since we did not know much about Portuguese wines yet, the waitress gave us an interesting introduction to the different areas and made great recommendations. A fun detail is the "wine card", which is a pair of magnifying glasses, as all the wines are standing on a shelf in the restaurant.

For 1 starter, 2 mains, 3 glasses of wine and cover charge the bill came to 58€.

A charming small place when you can have excellent quality for right prices, a very good professional service and a nice choice of wines. Very interesting paintings at walls. All alone it deserves the trip. You'll fall in love with it.

We had had several excellent meals in Lisbon at other restaurants this trip when last night we went to Enoteca de Belem which is right near our hotel (Jeroninos 8). We were blown away with how well-prepared the food was and the suggested wine pairings. It is a lovely, tiny restaurant tucked away in a small alley with almost a cozy private library feel. We split what seemed to be a sardine pate and crisp, fresh Gazpacho soup (we divided one and they plated them separately--all the presentations of each course were exquisite and a large fresh (crayfish-sized) shrimp served with Portobello mushrooms and a delicate fresh cheese. I had an outstanding, creamy risotto with shredded duck topped with bacon and my son had codfish with spicy chourizo. Both were perfectly prepared. The waiter suggested two different whites from the Douro region, the first crisp and light with the first course and the second lush and rich. It was so fantastic that we immediately broke our rule not to go to the same restaurant twice when traveling--we booked reservations to return tonight after spending the day at the beach in Cascais.

This is both a restaurant and a wine bar. We went for dinner so we did not really explore the Enoteca side of the establishment but their food and wine pairing was impressive. We were two and started, respectively with green asparagus with egg and the grilled goat cheese with figs.Both quite wonderful appearing to be simple dishes but due to clever uses of texture, herbs, oil and vinegars, were quite the opposite. Then we shared the octopus as a second starter, and it proved deliciously tender. The pork was juicy, reddish in color, and a far cry from the dry stuff that is usually marketed as pork filet in restaurants; the bacalhau was, to my mind, even better, two delicious piece of salted loins -- and the portions were reasonable, not the overfilled plates one is often served in Portugal. The restaurant is tucked away in a little alley of Rua de Belem and might take some effort to find. Service is impeccable and very friendly.
