We decided for this restaurant because the menu was different from the others nearby serving paella and steak with french fries.
The tuna tartare as a starter and octopus as a main were great. Service was a bit slow and a bit confused but this seems the case in a lot of places in Portugal so it's better to get used to it :)

Yes the service is a bit slow but it was worth waiting for! We are not too big a fans of the traditional Portuguese cuisine (sorry) so this was a nice change. We had lunch with great Caesar salads, steak was beautiful with very tasty purée of sweet potatoe. Location is excellent. Pricey but worth it IMO.

Centrally located we happened to come across this lovely restaurant and had a table outside. There was a very good menu choice. We ordered the cheese, salami sausage and bread as a starter and then a vegetable risotto and pig plums with sweet potato as mains. There was also a good dessert choice. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and our only criticism is that the service was a little slow (but this seemed to be the norm in nearly all restaurants we visited whilst in Lisbon!) Well worth a visit.

In the centre of Lisbon, this apparently touristic restaurant hide a quiet and sophisticated place to have dinner. The food is really interesting and presentation can't be better. Bar tenders are gentle, funny and know different languages. A great place to feed yourself!!

Great place with excellent top quality menu compatible to NYC gourmet. Take a lil longer to get the food, but worth your timing. Owner is checking every table by himself to make sure no complaints.
