I had a pleasure to try octopus which was simply perfect! Nothing to add. Evening couldn’t be that good without Anabela’s support. She was really commited, she helped me to choose proper wine and let me try 3 different bottles. THANK YOU!

Three of us went for lunch recently and found this restaurant a surprise, even after reading the positive reviews. We had three courses, and all were fantastic - whether it was octopus croquettes on black eyed pea salad or ceviche, or sea bass filet -...the food was delicious The service from Wiliam was brilliant - some good advice on wine and replacement of a tainted wine without any hassle - he made the meal much more enjoyable. 9 clean plates was the outcomeMore

A disappointing evening. Not ones to complain too much but despite the food being good, the service was poor. No one person seemed to be overseeing the team which meant (amongst other problems) we were left waiting 25 minutes for the bill despite numerous attempts...to catch a member of staff’s eye. Maybe we were just unlucky but it certainly seemed more attention was being paid to other customers - a certain bias shall we say. Give it a go. I hope you find them more attentive.More

Fantastic food and service! Fellipe looked after us and he was friendly and attentive. We had the bread with the garlic butter and prawns as a starter, and it was absolutely divine! Hands down the best prawns I’ve ever had! Fresh, flavourful and tender. My...partner had the entrecote steak and it was so tender and lush. Highly recommend!More

We have had a more than amazing dinner at this nice and cozy restaurant. The food was just lovely - the best prepared fish (clams and tuna) we've ever had. Perfect! Also, the waitress and waiter were lovely people, who put a lot of effort...in keeping us safe despite our allergies! Big thank you to Thais and Wiliam. Will certainly come back here!More

Food looks a bit expensive when taking a first look at the menu, but don't get stopped by it. Food is excellent, very tasty and proportion are really generous. We took a grilled fish each with potatoes a grilled vegetables (missing on the pictures) and...we could not eat anything more. Fellipe, our waiter, was very friendly and profesional. The location is also very nice. It is definitely a place to go for eating delicious food in Lisbon!More

The menu is okay. It is a fish specialized restaurant We did not see any kids though. Didn't look like a "child-friendly" place. You should call the restaurant and ask. Enjoy Lisboa anyway!
