“You are better to book a table”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Booked a table for the 30th December and it was a good job we did. Nearly every table was reserved and they were turning people away. We had the shellfish platter for two, it was fantastic, would definitely go back if we was here longer.

“WONDERFUL GRILLED SEAFOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2013

A beautifully tiled restaurant with the freshest fish and shellfish on display upon entering. Super Bock on Draft served in a large glass, Nice wine list. Started with beer all around for 4, while we looked over the menu and a bottle of wine for our meal.

The two soups, fish and vegetable were both delicious. We love fish and the whole grilled octopus, the grilled lobster, and the codfish were each the best we ever had. Service was a little cool at first, English not easy here, but as we ordered, drank and laughed, the service improved measurably.

2 shared deserts, 3 Croft Ports and 1 Croft Brandy were very good. The bottles were near empty so they just left them on the table for us to finish off. Then they decided that we needed some more desert, we had been there about 2 hours, and they brought us 4 pieces of very good cake on the house. This would have been a 250 euro lunch easily in Paris or Rome. Here it was 122 euro for 4 people with great food and plenty to drink over several hours. We're here for another 9 days and they're going to see plenty of us.

“Only Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2013

The menu looks good, but the execution is nothing special. The appetizer order was lost. When the entree's arrived the waiter didn't catch it and was less than apologetic about it. And the food was decent although, again, not more than adequate with regard to all dishes. I headed back to my hotel for desert, coffee, and better service.

“Fantastic evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. We saw somebody leaving the place, and the glimpse of the seafood display through the door impressed us enough to come in. The prices looked quite affordable, so we just started ordering everything that caught the eye, and the waiter stopped us explaining these were not tapas dishes, but normal full-sized plates:) And so they were, big portions of delicious local food with vinho verde. As most of reviewers said, the bill for two people will hardly reach 50 euro mark, and the evening will leave many pleasant memories.

“Great grilled meats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

We had dinner here on a rainy evening. The restaurant ambience was very welcoming and the decor very appealing. We watched our meats being grilled and were very pleased with the results. Soup before the dinner was very tasty also. Not being familiar with the wines we went with the house wine and were pleasantly surprised at the quality. Would recommend this restaurant in the heart of Lisbon.
