“Not special and expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Let me make things clear, I don't eat pork so it does not apply to 90% of people coming here.
I had dinner at this place with some of my work buddies, while returning to Lisbon.
We were 5, 4 ate pork I ate fish.

The prices are overrated for fish, chicken or event omelet (average price just for the dish was 15eur).

Total bill was 130eur (60eur for the pork 15 eur for the fish, the rest was for bread, butter, drinks (non alcoholic) and 4 coffes).

I think this place is to expensive... but once again, I didn't come here to eat pork....

“Gone a bit downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

Had not been back for a few years. Suckling pig was freshly roasted and out of the oven, but the quality of the meat was way too fatty. One must be very careful to choose a place that serves pig that has been better fed. I felt I was eating pure fat. I have been to better ones in the area but usually off the beaten path.

“Not good enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

I think service was not very good and the "leitão" was not really great. With that level of quality and service, perhaps you can find many other restaurants.
