We went here on the recommendation of a local who called it the best restaurant in Lisbon. I assume the restaurant owes him money because it was nowhere close. The beef was extremely gristly, the tuna was overcooked, the rest was just uninspired and blah. Skip it.

We visited on a Monday evening around 7-30pm I had read the reviews and seen the restaurant located just off the road past the right of the Se Cathedral.Brightly coloured outside and small and sophisticated inside.
The waiter said there was fado on that evening,but after finishing eating at 8-30,the performers had just arrived through the door - so eat later!
We both had the local fish,served with 3 small baked potatos and one courgette slice.The fish itself was fresh and well cooked,but if you don't want to disect bones,do not bother.At 15 euros we thought it not great.
As for a starter,we didn't bother- how do they justify 5 euros for a pat of butter?
Service not great- no one bothered to ask if we were enjoying the meal ( there were only 6 in,so no excuse)2 euros 50 also for a can of coke.
So at 32 euros,instead of awaiting the fado,we cut our losses- I think ice cream was 7 euros.
I do not paying a lot for excellent service,satisfying meals and a good atmosphere,but unfortunately this wasn' it.
For a romantic atmosphere in an intimate surrounding,the background music was suitable but far too loud.
I feel a meal for 2 would set you back near 100 euros- so this needs to be special.
It flattered to deceive,but the fish and potatos were cooked well.

I have been in this restaurant and was really good to find out good atmosphere and really amazing food they do on there.
Next time we go on there we would like to go back to this restaurant because the staff are polite and service is really good. And I will recommend all my friend to go visit the Coracao da Se.

A quite recent gemstone for Lisbon's gastronomy, this "Heart of the Cathedral" is an excellent choice for all those who are looking for a touch of the Portuguese lifestyle: a dash of improvisation, boiled up in a familiar environment and served with heartfelt hospitality. A good mixture of flavors and wine choice on the menu, a creative offer of workshops and other events throughout the year with a musical cherry on top: Fridays local artists feed the soul as well!
