“Tiny cosy gorgeous restaurant”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you are looking for a perfect cheap place, to take your girl out or your friends, this is the place. Vintage overdecorated, very friendly service, you pay 12 euros for all you can eat. The chef asks you what do you not eat and afterwoods, he prepares the food based on your preferences. And what great food. Good wine available too, not a wide range of it. Suitable for vegatarians too. Definitly my favourite restaurant nowadays. Always book in advance, the restaurant takes 20 people and it is usually full everyday.

“Surprise menu for 10 euros”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is one of the best restaurants I've been in a long time. The place is small and overdecorated, it perhaps fits 20 people, not more. You cannot chose the menu, the menu is chosen by the chef for you. So they keep on bringing dish after dish in a perfect combination of traditional and novel cuisine. Amongst other good dishes we had ginger soup, turkey with figs, eggs with sausage, sausage pate with carrot, everything was gorgeous. The place is hard to find but definitely worth a visit. Drinks and coffees not included on the price.

“Original, boa comida e ambiente descontraído!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

I was looking for a reasonable, cheap, priced restaurant and I read about this spot. It said that the chef would ask what you didn't like and go from there. It also said that, for €10, the food would keep coming while you wanted. I tried and I loved it and absolutely recommend!!!! The staff is also 5 stars. The only limitation is it's size but that's what makes the cozy ambiance. On sundays you have live music.

“Romantic and interesting small restaurant”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Perfect to end the night. Relaxed, dont even have a menu. You say what you like and suggestions come to your table. Perfect for persons who want relaxed atmosphere with awsome servica and away from the crouded restaurants.
