This is a really cosy little restaurant, so make sure to come early or call ahead. The staff is super-friendly, giving the place a family atmosphere. The food was great and plentiful.

Very cozy small restaurant. Fish is well prepared, served fabulously and not high priced. On overal a good place in the centre of Lisbon for dinner. Definitely worth a visit. Portion is big!! Their menu counts everything for two people. However, if you are solo, they will cut it by half, no problem.

We had a very enjoyable meal at this restaurant our last night in Lisbon. Food was great and the fish was very fresh. Our server, Hugo Miguel, was quite fun and made great suggestions. Portions are huge as every meal is for 2 individuals. If you want a table, get there when in opens because it is a small restaurant... More

We ordered three entrees -- dorado, cod, and pork chops -- and had way more than enough to satisfy six hungry travelers. Fresh salad, bread, olive oil and herb dressed little potatoes -- it was all great, and less than 100 euros for six of us including beer! Tiny little family run place. We arrived near opening time and had... More

Rustic, great value, and by the looks of things, the menu changes depending on what fish/stock they have that day. Run by the family in a tiny little restaurant (the son was such a lovely guy), and you know it's got to be good when the locals come here for the work lunch break. Would definitely recommend the fish and... More

Went twice to the restaurant. A very small one located at the Chiado quarter in Lisbon. Only nine tables and more often than not with a big waiting line outside. But once one is there, be prepared for a great experience: the fish is fresh and prepared with the best of cares, simply unforgettable! Enjoy.

Very friendly, efficient service in a tiny restaurant - get there by 7.00pm or wait. We ordered fish (for 2) - grilled fish on a bed of lettuce and boiled potatoes - slightly underwhelming? Wine, chocolate pudding and creme caramel for dessert : bill came to €52.

Thank RK1010
