The worst food experience in Portugal; the food was served cold and looked like a ‘ready meal’ from microwave. It was also super overpriced and they dont even give you a recipt and we were forced to pay a service charge!! Avoid this place. Awful!!!

Awful food and below average sevice. Serving frozen pizzas is really bad in my book, and only halfready is even worse. Seasoning is also nothing they have heard of. Avoid if you can.

We had breakfast here and it was not a good experience. The food was cold when it arrived, the fried eggs and the bread were very dry. The staff was arguing loudly with each other, and we were overcharged even though we pointed out the mistake. The staff either did not understand or chose not to understand, so we payed what they asked and considered it the cost of choosing a cafe which has low rating in Tripadvisor.
This is a place to choose if all other, and better, options fail.

We did not eat here but bought pastries to go multiple times and were impressed by the quality and value. Basically, this is more of a neighborhood place than a tourist place.
