“Great Cafe”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We came here for coffee after dinner one night and had a great time. They had a fantastic 4-member jazz band playing, all the tables were filled with people having lively conversations, and the coffee was good. Great atmosphere!

“Must dine in Lisbon”
Reviewed November 14, 2013 via mobile

It is a quaint cafe with about 8-10 tables located in Alfama, about 10 mns from the city centre by no 28 tram. The place itself makes u to want to spend a couple of hours over ur vine and lunch/dinner. Had a chicken dish and a veg dish between us and both were outstanding. We left the place resolving to come back when v visit Lisbon again.

“Never wants to leave”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

It feels like a artsy, cozy living room where you can chat or only read a book for hours. Coffee is really great and the cake that came when we order "a Cappucino with a surprise" was delicous.

“Best meal in Lisbon”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

This quaint cafe is in Alfama.Strangely we were staying almost next door and just had one meal here! And it was the best meal. The food was brilliant - the soup was great and my vegetarian meal of cauliflower, carrots and peas with rice was outstanding. Manoj had herb chicken with rice which was great too. The chef seems to have some Indian influence for sure ! The cafés vibe is great, the server was friendly - all in all a great experience especially the food. Must go.

“Serendipitous”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Found this wonderful little cafe on a day trip to Lisbon by sheer chance. Eclectic decor, tasty reasonably priced food and a lively atmosphere. Had lunch here and wished I could have stayed longer. Don't miss it if you're in this area!
