This bautiful restaurant offers an astonishing view over the river, the bridge and the Christ's statue. The food is excelent. It offers a great experience. If the weather allows, chose to site outside.

“Great looking place and nice views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Food was delicious (though only two vegetarian dishes) and service very nice, the place was full of foreign visitors which isn't normally a good sign but I suspect it's due to the great space and decor, very upmarket.

The location is outstanding and the food is good. You can go outside when the weather good but not too hot (if too hot you would prefer to be inside )

“Great restaurant, great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

I visited this restaurant with my family, including kids, and it was a memorable experience.
All dishes we had were excellent and the staff was very friendly and attentive. Good menu for children.
We had a dinner but I feel that the views during day time should be magnificent.
My next visit will be for lunch.

“Great expectation, poor experience.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

One of the best locations to eat in Lisbon, but the service from the staff is far from good. The food isn't too expensive but don't expect a fantastic experience!
Maybe it's a good place to drink a cocktail on the terrace, but that's all.
