First the good part: interesting ambiance, excellent friendly service. The bad part is the food: it is authentic, but true to when Portugal was a poor country and had to make the best of low-grade ingredients. The mains offered (on a very limited menu) were...More

This restaurant is small with a limited menu, but the food is one is one of the best we had in Lisbon. The staff is young and quite helpful. The service is outstanding. A bit hard to find but highly recommend a visit.

The food is simply amazing. Each dish has some kind of a flavor surprise. Nice to ask for several starters and try it all then eat one of the daily specialties. The people were very nice too. It's a keeper.

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,

earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in

Description
This is a new place reviving the ancient Lisbon tradition of Tabernas. A modern and simple approach to the ancient popular wine bars in Lisboa: the "Tabernas". It's cozy, friendly and personal, but the food is exquisite and it's makes you travel back in time. Here you can try popular dishes almost forgotten, house made specialities that you'll hardly taste in normal restaurants, and at a very reasonable price. It's a secret spot to finish your afternoon stroll in Baixa, you get there through arches and small popular streets, there you can sense a little of the popular neighborhood. You must try this adventure!
