I know, you can eat more or less the same for half the price in Lisbon but you won't get the atmosphere, the tablecloths, the napkins and service you get here. Ok the young waiters are professionally enthousiastic in the hope to get a tip but rather that than uninterested staff. You like it or you don't I guess. And yes the wine and brandy are overpriced (what you'd expect to pay in Germany, Belgium, England or Holland) for Portugal but anyone can read the prices ... Except for the brandy maybe but hey you're on holiday aren't you?
One little remark is that the dishes came to quickly to our liking. A bit more time beween starter and main would have been nice. We paid 108 euro for two starters, two mains(well prepared steak), two glasses of wine, a brandy and two coffees. Not cheap for Lisbon but we found it reasonable.

It is now the sixth night we are staying in Lisbon and the restaurant is our first poor experience. We found the well rated restaurant on tripadvisor and at the end we have to admit, that it is a tourist trap.

In short words:

The service of the young guys is very good. They are very attentive and kind. The owner is professinale but not more. The restaurant itself is very nice, but you can find a lot of places of that design in Lisbon.

The menu is not very large, what would be okay for me, because normally shorter menues mean better quality. Anyway, a fillet mignon for 24 euros is at the very upper end of prices which you have to pay in Lisbon. And when you order a steak medium-rare and get a steak more well done rather than medium, it is disappointing.

Even side dishes, like potatoes amd french fries were not in the quality which we expected in such a restaurant. The fish was very fresh, but the portion was really small.

Concerning the wine, we got a good recommendation from the waiter, but again with 32 euro overpriced.

At the end we think 150 euro for a menue without Aperitf and Dessert is at least 1/3 too much.

The Bairro Alto district is somewhat uninviting, it's dirty, seedy and most restaurants have seating outside which unfortunately, tends to be close to the garbage due to the very narrow streets. We set out to find this restaurant having read the great reviews. It's actually on one of the less touristy streets in the quarter, and the entrance is relatively discreet, with indoor seating only. Once inside, you should be impressed by the old World atmosphere of the stone arches. The service is impeccable, friendly and unpretentious. Our party of four shared starters and we had four different main courses, both meat and fish, and shared two desserts, all fabulous. The owner was very attentive, making sure everything was up to expectations. Our last night in Lisbon and a wonderful experience... Best to reserve.
