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.
