My husband and I live here in Lisbon so we wanted to try a restaurant other than Portuguese for our date night. We called and made a reservation and were told that we were welcome but there would be a party at the same time as us. We arrived about an hour before the party and were treated as if we were dining in someone's home. We had the lamb with prunes (amazing) and also the kefta, both were delicious but the lamb was the winner. Main dinners come with 4-5 little plates of spiced beans and veggies to share. After our dinner the party had arrived and we were treated to a great belly dancing show. Two meals, two small bottles of wine, a beer, dessert, and two glasses of port wine came to 65 Euros. It was truly a wonderful dining experience. Thank you!

Agree with previous comments that this is a little gem in Barrio Alto. I think this is the first restaurant I have been to where the owner meets and greets, takes the drinks and food orders, serves food and works I'm the kitchen, simply amazing. The place is quite small but even so she manages it all with flair and efficiency. The portions are not particularly large but they are very authentic and delicious particularly the lamb with prunes. The ambience is very relaxed and I would definitely recommend this place worthy of a visit.

We found this restaurant on our first night in Lisbon, having previously done some trip advisor searching. We were not disappointed, the owner was lovely, and the cosy restaurant was tastefully furnished. We were served a lovely selection of starters, giving us the chance to sample a variety of tastes and textures. Then for our main courses, we again chose different dishes allowing us to sample lamb and chicken tagines and a chicken and lemon dish. All were delicious. The owner, cooks, serves and clears away, and all is done in a very friendly manner, making for a very enjoyable evening.

Dining here was like dining at the home of a good friend. The intimate room, terrific food and friendly host all made for a wonderful evening. We had a chicken and artichoke tagine a lamb and prune tagine and the traditional couscous. All were fantastic. I highly recommend.
