“Honest food for decent prices”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

Both locals and international visitors, up to 30-35 at the same time. 3-Course dinner including bread and wine for around 30 euros per person. Nothing fancy, but decent food. As for the whole of Lisbon restaurants: don't expect any haute cuisine desserts. But apart from that, it is a nice break away from all the hotel restaurants in the area.

“Might be worth a try”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

Small place, nice assortment of fish and meat. Cooking is a bit too simple(plain), nothing special but still fine. Honest portions Fishes seem to be very fresh. Advantage - works after hours, other places were already closed)

“Not wonderful, but certainly not bad!”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

This place is right next to my hotel and I popped in after my flight here.

So, what could I have but cod for my first meal in Portugal? I asked for it to come grilled and it was fine, accompanied by a bog-standard salad and three pieces of boiled potato.

I refused the bits and pieces of fish paste, cheese and so on that get put on your table in every restaurant like this in Portugal, as their value for money is poor.

It filled a hole. It was pleasant, but not gastronomy - and I wasn't expecting it to be.

Just ask for a simple meal here and it will be fine.

“Watch out”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

Just visited and ordered fresh crab - costs about 22 euro, waiter takes it from the tank to the kitchen to cook. About twenty minutes later food arrives on the table. The crab is frozen cold. How can it be the same crab just cooked freshly? Well it wasn't . Find this masquerade offensive and sent it back. Wonder if they try it on with all tourists or just older women. Dishonest and not good enough.
People next to us overcharged on bill - lesson this evening, watch out.
