This was an amazing visit. The waiting owner was hilariously sarcastic and made us feel at home. The service was quick and the food was absolutely outstanding. This place was better than any large or fancy restaurant I've visited.

I heard it's good but didn't expect it to be this good! The service is fast, the food is spectacular and the owner makes you feel at home! Go and see, then come back with more people - that's what I will do.More

Crisfama was an extremely pleasant experience for us! We found this place on our way from the National Tile museum to Feira da Ladra. It's a small restaurant that is on one of the side streets and can be easily missed! We found Crisfama through...More

You need to concentrate on the main courses. The starters are nothing special and the desserts are okay - but the entrees are superb. I had scabbard fish which was lovely and my wife had possibly the best tuna steak ever. The owner is so...More
