stumbled upon this restuarant. Decor exception and setting better. Staff quite professional and very pleasant and helpful. Food is good and wine list is more than adequate. Orange risotto is exceptioal. Duck tender but a bit overcooked for my taste. Would certinly recommend the restaurant. Food good, staff great and setting one of the best. Look down the Tagus river at Belem Tower, and back at Lisbon. Certainly worth the trip and experience.

A really good place to eat when visiting Lisbon.

Good choice of food at a reasonable price for the location. Service was prompt and polite and the food was well cooked and balanced.

If it's a sunny day and your in Lisbon I would definitely add a visit to Darwin's Cafe to your trip.

The river view is perfect for a summer weekend lunch with friends. The restaurant has a nice design and it feels trendy but not too much. It could be a 5 star place if it wasn't for the below average service. The food took ages to get to our table and the service was always very slow. The food was ok but not excellent.

The location itself was recommended by our hosts in Lisbon and was indeed very nice located with a view over the waterfront from the nice terrace. The restaurant is decorated in a very modern style. Food was perfect as well. Probably one of the best bacalao dishes I ever had.
