I came away from lunch here with a new zest for life.
Maybe it was the amazing cheese breads with the sensational cashew-nut pesto, perhaps it was the fruit juices, freshly made, from Brazilian fruits we had never tried before. Or my first ever cup of (freshly ground) Angolan coffee.
Perhaps it was the experience of feeling like you were guests in someone's home. Two tables, with our hosts preparing everything right next to us and their amazing artwork surrounding us.
Or possibly, it was the welcome we received from the amazing owners. When I asked them for Lisbon tips, they filled our heads with ideas of their favourite places (so many things I would never have tried). In fact, we have already visited one of their excellent suggestions! They were warm, positive and generous people and deserve every success.
It is a small place, so if you go and can't get in, make sure you go back! Plus, one of the best views of Lisbon is minutes up the hill.
