I am a vegetarian and was having a hard time finding anything but bread and cheese, and this place was a great find.

We had good service, but it was really slow while we were there. There were only 5-6 tables occupied in the entire place.

We tried the butternut squash soup and eggplant and my husband had the triggerfish (I am vegetarian and he isn't). Everything was really good and fresh.

The restaurant was super clean and new and pretty.

Echo previous comments. Food and drink good when it comes. Staff so busy, food and drink orders forgotten despite constant reminders. Seems to be endemic of Portugal culture, except for Luzzo pizza over the road. Electronic Pos ability, fastest meal in Portugal yet. Would have rated them 5 star but not on Tripadvisor yet.

We booked a table for 3 at 20:15, it is now 21:56, the main course is still not served.... I aske the waiter who told me that the chief is doing as fast as possible. I'm almost starting to find it funny.
Appart from that, Food is not bad. But you must have time.

Dear “Cphome”,
Thank you for your feedback. Please accept our most sincere apologies for this unfortunate experience. Unfortunately, we had some last minute staffing issues in the kitchen and we did not expect the flow of customers that walked in at more or less the same time. I assure you this is not typical of our normal high standards.
Thank you once more for your understanding and I hope your experience has not marred your stay in Lisbon.
Best Regards,
Nick Roucos
General Manager

We were looking for a place to have dinner close to our hotel on a Sunday night, and fortunately came across this restaurant as many of the other places nearby were closed (including the restaurant we had planned to go to). This is a very nice, modern, spacious restaurant with a calm atmosphere. The menu is not very large, but quite adequate (I would have liked to see more salad choices, though). The food was very delicious and beautifully presented. The prices are quite reasonable for the quality of food ( soup, entree, wine/beer and dessert for 2 came to just over 40.00 euros) . Our waitress was polite and helpful, and suggested a great wine-she didn't have any difficulty understanding and communicating in English. The restaurant is very spacious, and there were only 3 other couples dining there (maybe not busy because it was Sunday night?), so the lack of a crowd makes it suitable for a quiet romantic dinner. If one is looking for a lively place, perhaps should look elsewhere. Not sure how crowded it gets during lunchtime, or on other nights of the week, though. The service was quite slow in spite of having just a few customers. We were not in a rush, so didn't mind much. Overall, this was one of the best meals we had in Lisbon.
