“Too much expectations...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2014

Honestly, despite living five minutes driving from this restaurant we had never had meal there before. But when I checked the TripAdvisor ranking of the restaurants in Oeiras, I had to try it to confirm (or not...) the first place achieved.
I was with my family and we all ordered different dishes: sole filets with sprout rice, escalope with mushroom sauce and veal brochettes.
All the dishes were OK, but we could not find anything distinctive that justifies the high ranking of this restaurant. In fact, the only thing that one can consider above average was the rice pudding we had for dessert but just because it had just been cooked, and was still warm.
The atmosphere is not appealing and the prices are regular.
