i decide to try this restaurant after reading that they came in second place in a "Bacalhau à Brás" contest.

"Bacalhau à Brás" is one of thousand ways codfish can be cooked in Portugal, boiled and shredded in small peaces, then cooked in a pan with fried onion rings, french fries, scrambled eggs topped with parsley and olives.

It was good but not worth of a price in a contest, in my opinion.

Also we had "Prego do Lombo", tender loin steak in a bun with french fries on the side, this one was very good.

The service is quite efficient and friendly, apart that not much to say about this restaurant, never the less i might give it a second chance.

Visited this restaurant twice during our short stay in beautiful Lisbon. Over the road from our airbnb accommodation. Ate upstairs in this airy restaurant. First visit 4 of us enjoyed a delicious meal. Carlos was our very friendly discreet professional waiter and suggested choices. A selection of starters, Iberian ham, whelks, pigs ears and octopus were interesting and the ham delicious. Mains, local fish recipe, pork and steak all good, the pork was the star- very tender. Large portions. Chocolate desert delicious. House wine good. Returned 2 nights later and had another delicious meal and extremely well looked after, recommendations again delicious and interesting. All the staff were particularly welcoming and friendly. It was full, great atmosphere; clearly frequented by local people. Excellent value. Definitely recommend. Paulo went the extra mile in ensuring our left property was returned to us!- big thank you to all
