We were staying just round the corner from Tapas Bar 52 and it became our "local" for the time of our stay. We both loved it from day 1 and sampled a wide range of the house tapas, which is a mix of Spanish and Portuguese items.
There are cheaper places to eat and drink in the area, and if you get into the atmosphere it is easy to spend a bit more than intended, but we would not call it particularly overpriced. We found the staff (including the owner, Nuno) friendly and helpful, and all spoke good English. We particularly recommend the marinated anchovies.
Just a tip - the place down the alleyway next door, "Lost" is also well worth a visit, with a beautiful terrace overlooking the city.

On a 5 night visit to Lisbon we ate here twice!
Stumbled upon it one evening, and loved the friendly atmosphere and great tapas food.
There's something for everyone on the menu!
It can get busy primarily with locals (which is always a good sign). There are tables out the front on the road if you want to enjoy the warm evenings, and inside is cosy. The staff were very efficient & friendly.

We have been eating there for two evenings and it was really great! Food and wine were very good, the service kind and correct. We would recommend this Tapas Bar to anyone.

We found this whilst looking for a restaurant we had previously been to, it had changed into a tapas bar. We ordered a selection of tapas which arrived gradually and loved everything we ordered.... Would recommend, it was not over priced as previously reviewed.....
