Went here on the strength of the reviews on TA and we were not disappointed. As we knew the lady owner did not speak any English we got a Portuguese friend to make a reservation for us before we left the UK. I would echo previous posters and make a reservation in advance as the place is tiny but it just adds to the atmosphere of being in someone’s traditional kitchen but with the No.28 tram thundering close past the front door which was great for people watching. On arrival there was a little confusion about the reservation because of the language barrier which was soon rectified by a helpful Portuguese/English speaker enjoying a meal with a small party and the lady quickly arranged tables so that we could be seated with a friendly smile. We didn’t have to wait long for our food even though it was home-made and freshly cooked and while we waited the lady came out with a plate of mini toasted bread and a pot of baked, gooey and flavoursome cheese for spreading/dipping which was very more-ish and “on the house”. I had the codfish baked in the oven (bacalhau com nata) and it was absolutely delicious and my husby had a pork dish with chips which he also enjoyed and we washed it down with a refreshing draft Super Bock. All of the food that was coming out of the kitchen looked tasty, especially a seafood stew which arrived on the table behind us – the smell when the lid was lifted from the pot was amazing and I couldn’t help but turn around to find out what it was. The lady serving was a real character - even when a little dog decided it was going to pop its head around the door she cheerfully shooed out it out and when it came back in and started trotting towards her (much to our amusement) she laughed and shooed it out again and threw it a scrap! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to experience traditional Portuguese food cooked with pride in an intimate setting. This was also the cheapest meal we had during our stay in Lisbon. If you time it right you could walk down the hill to the miradouro and enjoy a cracking sunset view too.

Very friendly ladies that also entertained our son while we were eating. Prices are cheap compared to the quality you get.

This great little restaurant is worth seeking out when you're next in Lisbon. With only 4 or 5 tables, making a reservation is a great idea - ask someone to help if you don't speak Portuguese as Natercia (I think that's the name of the woman who owns the restaurant) doesn't speak English...but boy, can she cook! Not only is she chef extraordinaire, she also waits on the tables and collects the plates when you've finished eating. Locals obviously enjoy eating here and there is even a tv going to add to the homely ambience. Two of our party chose the bacalhau di casa and were presented with a delicious salted cod 'pie' and salad that could have fed a family. The other chose bacalhau (salted cod) done a different way - grilled with lashings of olive oil and garlic - equally delicious. Too full for dessert, our meal with a very nice bottle of Portuguese red wine and two tasty cheeses for starters came to an incredibly cheap 49 euros. Highly recommended for no frills, honest and delicious Portuguese food in a charming part of old Lisbon.

If you come to Lisbon don't miss this place but be carefull to book a few days in advance, the woman is facing celebrity ! :) She's reaaaly nice and will make you the best homemade "Bacalhau" ever. Ask for the Bacalhau con Natas.
