We are staying close by and wandered in for dinner. We were greeted with a friendly smile. The menu had an interesting variety of traditional Portuguese dishes. We enjoyed our dinner especially the rolled eggplant dish and sausages.

A very innovative chef with a kind of 'tasting plus' menu, many surprises, including lots seafood and veggie-friendly options. Truly a memorable meal in a romantic roof top location. I can't recommend this place enough.

The place has a very good selection of traditional Portuguese food. The bacalhau is fantastic. The only negative is the lack of traditional Portuguese dessert. All desserts are American still.
