“best steaks in town !”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

I dont like the place, too tourists and during summer, outside, people always asking for money.... pickpockets in the area, careful.
But their steaks are really the best! Go for it!

“pastel de nata”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

This place has a brilliant 1920s interior and delicious pastel de nata pasteries. Two bloody good reasons to visit.

“Sit outside but be sure to peek in”
Reviewed November 8, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch here after a four hour walking tour. I sat outside because the weather was great. Paying higher prices to sit outside is worth it for the ambiance at this old cafe. Very relaxing. I ordered bacalhau a nicola but didn't like it. It had too much cream sauce and a lot of pin bones. Wait staff was ok but they try not to bother you.

“Great Position”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

This coffee shop sits on Rossio square and on a sunny day its nice to sit outside and watch the world go by with a good coffee and a pastry. Its has a beautiful facade which you just have to photograph. Its probably a bit more expensive than others but you pay for the location.

“Standard food, with prices that the service does not live up to, with a nice backdrp”
Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

To be honest, not surprised given the location. A tourist trap, with ok food set at tourist rates. Wouldn't come back and was very disappointed with the lack of charisma given the history of the place. Frustrating when they could easily be the place to lounge and sup a coffee!
