Best cod fish cakes in our whole trip to Lisbon! We loved the food here, three of us dined and we all had different dishes. All three plates were empty by the end! Excellent service with friendly waiters and located in a bustling, lively area of Lisbon.

Lovely sangria. The alentejo steak was good too. A tureen of octopus rice was brought and could have fed all of us. Didn't enjoy the rabbit and clams. Good friendly service and ambience.

Fell into here at 9:30 pm , quick look at the menu and we decided to give it a try ! Not a pretty place but clean inviting and busy with locals. The cover charge for bread olives butter etc was placed on the table and was told was optional, fair enough I thought . Can't say the service was... More

There are so many restaurants in the Bairro Alto area of Lisbon. I chose this because it looked comfortable inside and it had no television blaring from the wall. The menu, like many in Lisbon, offers the typical fish and meat dishes and the typical three soups: fish, vegetable, and Portuguese soup. Unlike other fish soups that I had on... More

This place is set on a nice cobbled street with a few tables outside. We ordered three main courses and a few appetisers. Unfortunately there isn't much good to say about the food. It arrived within 5 minutes of ordering and was borderline inedible. This food had clearly been pre-prepared and was just flash heated before it was served. Total... More

We we're not a big fan of this place. We ordered a meat and a fish dish who where drowned in a salty sauce. The service was quiet bad (the waiter was not nice at all) and we got the wrong check. Twice! Would not recommend this restaurant.

The rabbit in wine sauce was with mushrooms out of the tin and the plate was filled on one side with awful oil dripping french fries and rice on the other side. There was a micro salad. The caraffe of house wine was quite pricey with EUR 7,90. When I commented this the waiter slammed the the wine list on... More

This had been recommended by Miguel and it was good! Nice small place to eat. The fish soup was delicious and grilled fish excellent. The feeling of a genuine local restaurant. Well worth the search!

Stumbled across this family run restaurant whine we were going to experience some liv fado. Small family run business with excellen service and food. Tried the Swordfish and the black pork, outstanding in fact the courses were huge. The cost of the house wine is less than ten euro for a 75 cl, not bad. From the moment you arrive,... More
