nice touristic street, good atmosphere, fair food but overpriced and terrible service! They could do much more out of this location. I confirm the bad reviews!

i don't normally post on restaurants, and I'm usually pretty positive on the hotels, but this one could be avoided. walking around in the restaurant rich area, we chose unwisely. sadly, it had a few people seated out front and we thought it would be a good place to eat. these tourists had also evidently fallen into the same trap as us. the first staff member was jovial enough, the other was sour, and the last one seemed angry that we didn't eat the meal (which was overcooked and had that many bones my friend could not eat it). the 100 euro bill was not appreciated in light of the average food, and the poor service. i forgot to check but another poster noted the supply of bread and prosciutto (which i thought was complimentary) is brought to you when you seat but i suspect we were charged for this!

While I do agree with other posters that the place is overpriced, I have to disagree on critics made about food or service.
We've tried several bars ans small joints in Barrio Alto and found the food to be up to the average standard. Likewise, service was good, we did not wait longer than anywhere else and all was done with smile. Last but not least, you can't oppose to the fact that it's nice to be seated outside right on to the stairs of the alley. Touristy? Yes, may be, but that's part of a city that attracts... Tourists!

This was the only restaurant in BA where we did not have to wait for a table for two, so we ended up here. No locals were inside, only tourists. We ordered four different tapas of which the bacalao cakes were refried and the asparagus omelette was still raw. More than 10 euros was added to our bill for bread (which was served and refreshed without asking, and contained 3 slices of bread on a pile of crackers), olive and oil. For the 60 euros we paid you can have much better value for money in this neighbourhood. It was the most expensive bill we paid in Portugal, but the lowest quality.
