An absolute must for fish lovers! A bit pricey for Lisbon, but worth it! Traditional Portuguese cuisine served by traditional moustached waiters)))) huge portions, good wine selection and nice interior ( nothing special, though). As everywhere in Lisbon they bring you small compliments and then include in your bill - but take their cheese and jamon anyway) great with vino verde -it'll make your evening!

First impression was very good, but it was all down hill from there. Got starters as soon as we sat down. We had not ordered it, but it was good to start of with a snack. Taking our order and receiving the food went very slow.. It took an hour to get the main course. Nothing special about the food here. Many other places to explore for a much more decent price. This was below average for me..

I was there with a group of 8 businessmen. We had a variety of different seafood dishes including the sea bass, sole, cod and some had the shared seafood assortment tower. Everyone was very pleased with their seafood choices. Some had veal which was reportedly also very good. The wine list contained many Portuguese wines, some had whites, I shared a bottle of Duas Quintas which was excellent. We ending up going there on two consecutive nights, for the seafood but mostly for the outstanding Chocolate Meringue [Merengue de Chocolate] dessert, which the restaurant proudly boasts in the menu "the Best in the World". I would have to say that if it is not the best it is certainly close to the best and if you like chocolate and meringue, the combination served here is exquisite! The restaurant has been open since 1974 and was quite crowded with locals so we knew it was a great choice!

Enjoyed my food here and the overall setting. Yes its tightly packed, avoid if that will bother you. Certainly has had a lot of celebrities over the years, bit of an institution. Meal and service was good. Recommend to have a reservation.

Go early and make sure you have a reservation. The food was so good we ate here two nights in a row. This restaurant is very popular with the locals as the night goes on the place is very crowded. Our service was fine keeping in mind that this is not the Ritz but a great family run restaurant. Everything that we had was delicious but our favorites were the 3 pound lobster to share and the Parma ham sliced fresh off the bone at our table. Salads are plentiful ,fresh and very good. Get the green house wine, very reasonable and tasty. Don't miss this place and book your reservation well in advance.
