“Excellent food, service could be better”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Reservation in English was obviously very difficult (took 10 min) and when arriving just in time we had to wait another 20 min. But the food (braised tuna, mushroom risotto) and vinho verde were great, so is the atmosphere.

“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Oh what a gem among all those low quality tourist rip-off restaurant. Cool and funky decor, amazing food, downtown location. 
We had a seared tuna and fiduea (noodle version of paella) both were delicious, well executed and presented. OK service. Baby changing facility.

“Delicious lunch”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Sat outside on a sunny, cool day. Had a dish comprised of a soft poached egg mixed at the table with pieces of cod, chorizo, thin sliced potatoes, green and red bell peppers. It was beautiful, and very delicious. Accompanying crispy, herb, olive oil bread was also just right, and used for some irresistible sopping at the end. Service was perfect, friendly and attentive. Dish was 12 Euros and a bargain that made my mouth and stomach both very happy.

“good food, poor service”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

first impression is cool...lighting is bright, high ceiling, gives a "meeting hall" lack of ambiance. Then...The servers seem disinterested, talking on cell phone, forgot your order, When we sat down, the pre-postioned bread on table was hard and dry. When we asked if could be freshened, the waitress was obviously annoyed. Halfway through the meal, when our drinks had not arrived, we had to search for our server. The entrees were very good, Iberian pork and a vegetable struddle. Had the place been attractive and friendly, the overall rating would been very good or excellent. Too bad the staff drops the rating so much. Won't go back. There are too many other great places in Lisbon!
