I felt cheesy when I titled it as 'the best dining experience in Lisbon' so I changed it.. After finding our way through the narrow streets we found the restaurant. It is - what they say - easily overlooked. It is a nice small restaurant with a few seats in the restaurant. The people working there are one of those wonderful people you must have meet once in your live. The waitress and the chef took their time to explain the menu and helped us translating and with our decisions. You have friendly people in Lisbon and really friendly people. They were the latter kind. We ate squid with beans and rice, and finished with Pudim de Laranja (orange pudding) and Bolo da chamine (chimney cake). Next to received tasty food, I also got the feeling that I was genuinely welcome in their little restaurant. The experience was certainly one of the best I had in Lisbon.
I will always remember his explanation on the Bolo de Chamine 'It is a poor man's cake, but I will add this and that, and... I will make it a rich man's cake'.
