“Decent food - poor service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

8 persons for lunch - two from the group got their food looong before the others. They finished their meal before the rest was served.... Also drinks arrived som time after the first platters... Our polite and helpful waitress seemed quite embarresed, but could do anything to mend the delays and mix-ups..... The Food was quite OK, but will not og back...

“Find another place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

Poor service.
We ordered as a group, but all the dishes and the drinks came one by one....very late. The waitress did not remember what we ordered and came with drinks which obviously belonged to other tables. I suggest you find another place to enjoy your lunch.

“OK”

Nice setting on Praca do Comercio. Food was nothing special, but fair value. Service was ok as well. One of those places that can get by based on location, location location...

“Bad service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Despite the beautiful location, the staff seemed incompetent and careless. We waited about 15 min just to order drinks, when we ordered one soft drink and one cocktail, we only received the cocktail. 5 min later I got my food, but no soft drink or fork and knife to eat with. The waiter then said, they had run short, so I'd have to wait. But the couple next to us, received theirs immediately, so I approached the waiter to ask again, as the food was getting cold. Somehow there were forks and knives ready. This was quite strange. Though the food was actually okay, and my girlfriend enjoyed her virgin mojito, the poor service was really not worth the trouble.
