Food is very unsatisfying here. The restaurant is trying to look high-class, service is up to that but definitely not the food. "Golden shrimps with lime rice" for 32€. You literally get 5 shrimps with dry rice - no invention, no taste whatsoever. The food quality varies from total joke to average which is just unacceptable in a restaurant offering food from 20€ to 240€.

Recommended in a number of tourists guides. Mainly tourists eating there. Service was brilliant, couldn't fault it. Unfortunately the food was both expensive and tastless. We ordered the speciality fish stew, no real flavour to it. Our only disappointing meal of our whole trip to Lisbon. We didn't bother with pudding as a result.

Found this restaurant on a street of numerous Portuguese restaurants serving the same old fare. The service was amazing the food was fantastic and the atmosphere was just right. Will definitely return on our next visit

This is a discreet restaurant that you really have to look for to find. The food was delicious and the service second to none. A bit more expensive than average but well worth it.
