Wow, outstanding. Best meal I have had in a long time! I had the sampling dinner menu and it was all good! The bread with herbed butter was thinly sliced with a mandolin and lightly baked so it looked like lace. The first appetizer was green beans tempura with a cilantro aoili, very fresh and tasty. The second appetizer was a raw tuna mixture that I loved. Then came a meat dish which was a poached egg stacked on finely chopped cauliflower with crumbled smoked sausage, absolutely delicious! The some seared tuna with vegetables, also very good, then pork belly and veggies, over the top! Followed by a lemon sorbet to cleanse the palet which I think they just made fresh! And the dessert was a sampling of several all excellent. The meal comes with wine however I don't drink so they made me a fresh juice of strawberries, kiwi and oranges, so nice. Highly recommend this place. Staff were all very nice! I ate alone and they treated me extra nice, thanks so much!

What a great restaurant overlooking the Avenida da Liberdade - reserve a table by the window if you can. Genuinely friendly and attentive staff. Excellent food, great cocktails and wine. Realy good value.

Came upon this place by accident. Prime location on the Avenida da Liberdade next to Sofitel. We only wanted a main course, but it's worth going for the couvert (which they don't push, unlike some places) which amounted to two interesting starters plus the usual bread and stuff. Main courses at 18 - 20 euros are good value for the qualty of the ingredients and presentation, and the extensive (Portuguese) wine list is reasonable value. Excellent attentive service and no surprise mark-ups in the bill: in what other European capital would that happen?

We are staying next door at the Sofitel and literally stumbled upon this restaurant! There's no looking in the window from outside as you need to go upstairs. It was a quiet night so we were a little sceptical but we were far from disappointed.
We were offered a typical starter which were deep fried beans with a coriander aioli... Next was monk fish onion soup. Our entree was cod fish fillets and a fig and ham salad. By this time our gorgeous host Estefania had come out to introduce herself and told us all about their wonderful ham that comes from black pigs fed only on acorns! She made us feel as welcome as if we were in her home! Our mains were racks of lamb beautifully presented and delicious! I wish we could have sampled a dessert but we were too full!
An excellent restaurant with truly old fashioned hospitality!
