“Good Restuarant near Marquis De Pombal”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

We stayed at the HF Fenix Urban (reviewed separately) and wanted a decent restaurant within a short walking distance after a long touring day. O Cardo was the ticket at less than a block away. We had the flaming sausage appetizer which was a very generous portion shared by two and so good, one of the favorite things I ate in Portugal. My husband then had the Shrimp spaghetti and I had the Spaghetti Bolognese. Both were very good. The meat sauce was excellent, if perhaps a little salty but I prefer less salt than some. We both had a Superbock beer. We had the "cover" of bread and olives. The total came to 25 Euros before tip. Some of their seafood was pricey but they had many options on the menu for all price brackets. Service was friendly (one gentleman was gruff but he spoke little English so I think that was the reason and unfortunately we don't speak Portuguese). We would return.

“Wholesome food at a moderate price”
Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

Located close to the Fenix Urban and Sheraton hotels this restaurant serves Portuguese food We had calamari ( concha ) and salmon. Both were grilled. The calamari was amongst the best I have had.Prices are low, the atmosphere friendly and informal. Service was prompt but not hurried.

“Amazing fish”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

I had a fish dish that was cod in butter and it was fantastic. We also had a shrimp starter that was also amazing. We're planning to go back for a dish of shrimp and squid on a skewer that we saw others eating. It's not a fancy place but the food was great.

“Honest food for decent prices”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Both locals and international visitors, up to 30-35 at the same time. 3-Course dinner including bread and wine for around 30 euros per person. Nothing fancy, but decent food. As for the whole of Lisbon restaurants: don't expect any haute cuisine desserts. But apart from that, it is a nice break away from all the hotel restaurants in the area.
