We stayed in Lisbon only for a few days but we found ourselves having dinner here twice. We really liked the grilled ribs and grilled sardines. Fantastic and hearty and meaty - OH WOW. We tried the prawn in rice and while it was good, it think it's about average versus the other places we visited. The food didn't take long to come out and the servers were very kind to us and to my 1 year old son.

Lots of locals come here so it has it's share of loyal local customers - always a good sign. I met a guy who comes there every night after showing tourists around.

Some reviewers have noted the "hidden charges" but we simply and politely said, "No, thank you." to things brought to the table that weren't part of our order. The waiters gladly took them away without any hesitation.

This restaurant is clearly a great spot for a an authentic dinner experience. My recommendation: definitely try the starter with the gambas, it's really delicious!

so there was a nicely looking cheese and fresh bread served before we even ordered - we didnt expect to pay for that because we didnt order that. the only thing that was good was the octopus salad, that is worth coming for. the rest well id say horrible tho my mother liked the fish she has ordered. for me it was over done. i has ordered a seafood rice. it arrived with surimi in it? so i am in the country of freshed sea food and i am eating rice with surimi. and it didnt even taste good. the flan for the dessert was burned and not really good, the soup tastless and the pastel the bacalao was dry old and cold. not recommended, 2 points for nice octopus salad and friendly waiters

Our bill had an extra €12 added for eating the bread and cheese we were given as we sat down. In most restaurants this is free and for locals too.... but not here. Otherwise good food just didn't appreciate the trickery.
