“What a fun dining place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

My husband and I met our friend for dinner here on his recommendation, and we loved it. The food was very good, we had a great view out the window toward the bridge, and the entire area itself seemed fun and quirky. We ate in their restaurant - you walked back through the patio area and up a spiral staircase - but after eating our friend gave us a quick tour of the rest of the place and we saw the bar, where a small group was performing. It seemed like a really fun place to come hang out for an evening if you weren't battling jet lag and waking up early the next morning (which we were). Food was good and fairly priced - wish the clowns had been out and about more, but still overall a great, off-the-beaten-path restaurant and we would definitely return if we go back to Lisbon.

“an Experience!! drinks/dinner/music/circus(clown) school, yep its that good!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2012

a bar/restaurant with a great view run by a circus school...only in lisbon! what an experience. some days you arrive and people in costume (promoting a new play, perhaps) greet you. there is different music 'no tanque' (literally and old wash tank for the neighborhood from days gone by) everynight. you can dine (or just have drinks) with a marvelous look at the city below. its not somewhere visitors would easily find, but every taxi driver in town knows it---jsut be prepared for the heartstopping lisbon cab drivers taking you up and down hills on narrow streets ;) well worth it!

“Great experience :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

We were lucky to get a table by the window without a reservation since we got there early (be sure to book if you arrive after 20:00). View was amazing, staff friendly and the Calamari were the best I've ever eaten! Highly recommended.

“charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

The location is perfect, the view from the terrace on the river at sunset is stunning. very friendly and vivid place also to enjoy a concert in the night. is is good also to go alone for reading or writing, while sipping a coffee in the afternoon, but also nice to have a meal in two or a night out. at the entrance you can find a little shop with nice enamel jewelry. we went to a fado concert, just lovely! it was allowed to smoke inside, which for some is enjoyable but for other obviously not.

“funny, clown-circus house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2012

It was really funny when I thought I orderd chicken and waitres brought me soussage. But that soussage was great. Green wine is good, very good!
The restaurant has the best view over Tejo river, Christo Rei and Ponte 24 abril (like Golden Gate in San Francisco) and roofs of beautiful Lisbon.
