After suh a good revews we were expecting much more. WE found the food but no more than that, and the price was not cheap for lisbon standars. The veggie options are a good option

It's very popular with the locals, so you will need to reserve as it's always full and impossible to get a table without a reservation. They have two seatings per evening, and the place isn't very big. Food is delicious and quite a variety, atmosphere...More

I'll keep this short. Make a reservation and go. Amazing service, delicious food, great ambiance! Our waiter explained every dish to us. We ended up getting 6 things for 4 people. The goat cheese bruschetta thing was amazing, the bacalhua salad was refreshing, the black...More
