“Amazing little gem in Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

We booked based on the reviews on tripadvisor and we are very glad we did, a little out of the main tourist areas but taxis had no problem finding it. Beautiful décor throughout, I wanted to live in that building with a gorgeous courtyard setting for dinner. Very romantic but we went in a group and it was still amazing. The staff were great and recommended great wine for us. We had starters, mains and desserts and it was all beautiful and the staff couldn't have been more attentive. As we left they gave us all little gifts which was very sweet. I thought the bill would be very expensive but we were pleasantly surprised. I would definitely recommend.

“Don't miss the opportunity for an evening to remember in Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

Spending days in Lisbon could be magic since there are special places hidden somewhere in the tiny roads. Well, this restaurant is definitely a special place and, without the reviews on Tripadvisor, I would never have found it. The entrance is along a dark road, inside you enjoy a truly summer atmosphere. Sitting in the garden with trees, just a bunch of tables allows you to make it romantic or simply a ideal place where to stay with friends. In addition, service is very good as well as the food with a good range of options (not too many as a tourist-oriented, not too few to keep you away). Price more than reasonable. Finally, one advise: book in advance, even one day before.. Summary: don't miss the opportunity for an evening to remember in Lisbon

“Great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

A bit difficult to find, a liitle out of the tourist quarters, this restaurant with his backyard is truly a gem. I am glad, we made a reservation. So, we got a warm welcome and a table outside in the yard. It looked very romantic. Around 9 pm all table were full. As I said, great and friendly service. The food was extraordinary. I had black pork and my wife some sort of fish (sorry, can't remember). My son struggled a bit with his thai curry and the coriander inside.
The warm chocolate crumble desert was a great finish.

“Dare to enter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

At the top of a straight climbing street, you we dare to enter the restaurant. Don't hesitate, open the door. It is a charming place. We were over there end of July. We booked a table for 2 a few hours before. Just after entering we were asked to wait a few seconds in an old English style room. A few second later, a cup of sparkling white wine in the hand we followed our host downstairs in an absolutely unexpected and amazing garden. Some kind of a haven of peace in the city. Very quickly, it became difficult to believe that we were in the capital city of Portugal. It is wide enough to be quiet, not to feeling lonely. On top of the charming atmosphere, service was nice and the food very good. I had the grilled octopus, well prepared and tasty. All in all, it was very pleasant and not too expensive. One of our best memory (of restaurants) during our journey in Portugal.
