“Excellent restaurant near to the Lapa Palace hotel”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is a very charming restaurant, situated on a corner just where tram 25 takes a sharp bend to the right on its journey downhill towards Santos. As the other reviews have described, the restaurant is a former grocery store, with what look to be original fittings and an impressive ceiling - a lovely venue for a quiet meal. On our first visit, my wife tried the chicken tieta - a sort of Brazilian chicken Korma done in coconut milk - whilst I had the beef picanha. Both were delicious, supplemented by an excellent house wine and some interesting 'nibbles' while the main meals were being prepared. The owner was very friendly and keen to explain the history of the restaurant - although the place was a little quiet, there were three other couples which made for a relaxed ambience. On our second visit we were the only diners, but the food and service were again excellent and very good value. If you're staying at the Lapa Palace and your wallet needs a period of intensive care, this little oasis is well worth the 10 minute walk. It certainly deserves to be better known, and being right on a tram line is easily accessible for anyone staying in central Lisbon.

It's only a five minute walk from Lapa Palace Hotel and it's really worth going there. Excellent food, freshly prepared and served in a pleasent ambiente. Perfect service, selected wine and real value for money. We really enjoyed our dinner there!

“Excellent choice in Lisbon”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We run into this place by accident if we can use this word but it was a very nice accident indeed. Owner is somebody pleasant and very meticulous so we were almost sure to get some good food and it was really excellent. Original, tasty and very well presented, for sure that if I'll come back in Lisbon, I'll come here too.

“Love this restaurant!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

OMG this is a hidden gem in Lisbon, a short walk from Santos and several historical places! It's an old grocery store converted into a restaurant and it has a unique charm to it.
The food is amazing, the staff is lovely and is a very quiet place and ideal for an intimate and quiet dinner.

“An excellent restaurant!!”
Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

It is a very beautiful restaurant which seems like it has been an old grocery in black wood which makes it idyllic. They serve wonderful food. We tried three different starters, main courses and desserts and all of them tasted fabulous. The service was very good and helped with combining a good wine to the courses. Even the toilet was in high standard and much better than all the other toilets at the restaurants in lisboa. The conclusion for this restaurant is that you get much more of everything for the money than everywhere else in lisboa.
