I come here every time we go to Lisbon. The place can be a bit hard to find as it is on a tiny backstreet. In the summer they open up a lovely residential courtyard behind and it is nice to sit outside. The food is very good and is a mixture of traditional Portuguese with some modern dimensions. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff very attentive, and the experience well worth it.

Food lacks a twist for such a place. Nevertheless, you are going to have an enjoyable evening. Attentive service. Lots of starters on offer even before you opened the menu. Pricey.

Definitely don't be put off by the entrance, you'll see a different world inside.

We thought this place could become one of our favourites restaurants in Lisbon, but no. Some quick points: excellent atmosphere, good service and nice food with some good choice of wines. The place is a bit expensive but price/quality/service is kept. What's the problem? After the 3rd time we were at the restaurant, we had each time some small table-entrances more on our invoice. The last time we were with a group and had 2 additional bottles more on the invoice. This problem was also already reported by some of our friends in the past. My advise, check your bill very carefully.

Once inside, you quickly realise this is a very special place. Food is excellent, service friendly, helpful and efficient. Every dish was special, with the wines reasonably priced and good quality. Not to be missed! The atmosphere is great, too!

However, this restaurant has good Portuguese food and pleasant atmosphere, especially if you are seated in the courtyard. Some starters (oysters weren't good) can be skipped. Good overall impression, but nothing spectacular.
