“An excellent Meal in a very charming place!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

I was dining with same friends in this lovely restaurant, nearby it is the Miradouro of S.Pedro de Alcantara,one of the most beautiful views of old Lisboa.
Is very easy to find the restaurant,it is in the Bairro Alto who goes to Principe Real.
You can enjoy the fantastic view on the end of the afternoon and then be prepared to dinner.
The staff is really friendly,the place modern chic,fashion style,a new vogue of Lisboa,you have to try it.
The cuisine isgood,a mix of portuguese food and nouvelle cuisine,
Is this kind of restaurant and places that makes Lisboa one of the new cities in the world to be visited!

“Fabulous food, fabulous prices and a fabulous location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

I had dinner here with several colleagues from various nationalities. The welcome was friendly and there was a lively atmosphere in the bar. The menu was varied and most dishes were very reasonably priced at around €15.

I had the Portugal no Prato - a big casserole of savoury rice with prawns and white fish. Delicious, hot and very filling.

The restaurant sits at the top of the Gloria funicular, so it is a few minutes away from Avenida da Liberdade.

Olá Stuart1503,

We really apreciate the comment you made for us on Tripadvisor. Although, and don't get us wrong for that, we have to correct you because the most expensive dish we have is priced at 14€. It is even better isn't it ? ahaha =) Feel free to come back any time and maybe then you can try our lunch menu!

Best Regards,

“Nice place, shame about...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 October 2013

Don't get me wrong, I really liked the place - nice dining area, great atmosphere and lovely staff - but although the starters were good, the main courses were very disappointing. The duck was tough and the pork cheeks absolutely tasteless!
One of our neighbours had fish that they said was good - maybe we should have tried that.
It´s reasonably priced but for somewhere that is clearly popular and hard to get into, we felt that it should have been much better.
It´s a small menu so it's not difficult to make sure that the food is better cooked and tastier.
Not sure I'd go back.

Olá haith,

We thank you for commenting about us on Tripadvisor. It is always important for us to receive our guests' feedback for us to improve in the future.
Reading your comment carefully, we believe that you didn't have our regular guest experience. We say this because or duck dish (Confit no Pato) has been very consistent and our pork cheeks (Bochechas) is a winner since the beginning. Since you've liked the atmosphere and the staff we would like to invite you to come again and give us a second chance. We are sure that you will enjoy! If you do accept the invitation let us know and we will provide you a very nice table.

Best Regards,
The Decadente (AP)

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

Great food, nice waiters, all in all a good experience. We ate outside in their patio area.

One star off for rough edges on the wait staff, the leaky canvas roof over the patio that kept dripping onto my plate area (I tossed this up to adventures in dining as the food was very good), and the various smoking diners around us who were fouling our air.

I'd go back for the food.

Olá ldavisfl,

Thank you very much for writing about us on Tripadvisor. It is really great to see that you've liked our food. It is what you go for in a restaurant and so that goal was accomplished. We have to apologize for the dripping problem. The hole has been fixed and it will not be a problem anymore. We understand that it can be uncomfortable to dine around smokers but as you're sitting outside and that being the only place our guests can smoke, there's not much that we can do about it. We are glad that you've enjoyed your overall experience and we'll be waiting for you to come back and maybe try our new seasonal menu! Let us know if you do.

Best Regards,
The Decadente (AP)
