Always manage to find time to visit here. It's not glamorous or fashionable, but the professional staff and good, honest food make this a 'must go'! The garlic prawns, chips, soup, salad for two with wine comes to around 30E Can't fault this place at all!

Great fresh fish, sardines and other seafood! Service was excellent and prices reasonable. Beware of additional food brought to you which you did not order (such as bred for example...) if you consume only part of it, you will be charged for it. But it seems to be a local practice and we soon adapted.

The staff, ambiance and food are well worth the visit. Ultra busy at lunch, the waiter ushered us upstairs where we had excellent vegetable soup, bacalhau a bras, wine and doce de casa for under 20 euros for two. Well located, clean and wonderful staff.

I visited this cafe a few times last summer over the course of a few days for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Good coffee, pastries, and my chicken was good but not as spicy as I expected. I will be back on my next trip to Lisbon. Everyone in my group enjoyed their meals.

We had toasts and coffee with milk and it was rather expensive. It might be better for lunch and dinner.

This is like the tenth time we've been here, and it's consistently good. Professional staff, good menu, and good beer. The Caldo Verde, garlic prawns and dessert along with wine came to about 16 Euros. I'd go back in a minute!

We tried this spot early in the morning as we had a train to catch to Faro. This place was conveniently located by the hotel we were staying. We ordered coffee with milk and Queijadinha (a milk based pastry). Both the coffee and the pastry were delicious. They have many other pastries and options to try as well. Tips -... More

We found this place while walking around and felt hungry.I ordered grilled sardines with a big plate of salad instead of potatoes and my friend had a steak. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. Worth going if you're not looking for anything fancy and just want to enjoy tasty food for less money.
