Great original cocktails, great Portuguese food on our first night in lisbon. Nice menu aswell, as seen on the picture.
We had the creamy rice with shrimp and the fish with quinoa. Both were very tasty, we would recommend it to everyone!

Whatever you do, order the Grilled Shrimp with risotto!!!! I live in New Orleans and the burst of flavor was undeniably unique. Come here just for a dish and enjoy!

We walked in with no reservation, but it was early., filled up quite quickly. Service was attentive and helpful. Food was beautifully presented and we'll seasoned,. We started with olives and spicy cheese, yum. Then had mains, I had veal with soft egg, cooked perfectly, and chips, husband had the lemon , prawn Rissoto, other had fish and tuna, all looked amazing and desserts and 1 bottle of wine and a glass, total Eur 130, we thought reasonable. Would go back.

This place is great! Very good food, charming service. Delicious grilled prawns and lemon risotto.
One word of caution, in all the restaurants we went to they automatically give you a plate of bread, olives, and local cheese. Its very good but you will be charged about €5 each. If you dont want it just let them know.

Seitan and vegetable stroganoff — 4 bits of undercooked broccoli and 3 slices of mushroom in a sweet white sauce isn’t good enough.
Chicken was nice tho. Staff pleasant if bit haphazard.
Men’s toilet in shocking state and you know what (the late, great) Anthony Bourdain said about restaurants that don’t maintain their toilets....
