This place is an absolute gem. Great vibe, decor and ambience. Amazing service (Thank you Anna) which was friendly, fun, and very welcoming. The food however was the highlight. It was beyond words, especially the beef with meat sauce. Wow - we honestly think it is some of the best food we have had. We also had the calamari, and... More

The restaurant is located on a nice square, you may sit outside or in a nice decorated room inside. The food fluctuates between excellent and average - the sliced beef was excellent, but the gambas pancake was very oily and nothing special. But it was recommended by the waitress, and the most expensive of our tapas. Another recommendation was the... More

We ate early so had no problems getting a table but it filled up later on. It was our first night in Lisbon and Anna our waitress was friendly and very helpful. The menu is on the shorter side but that meant that everything was fresh and cooked well. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

We dined there at about 8.00 and were not rushed at all when the crowds arrived. The waitresses were so nice and helpful, specially Anna. She gave us a taste of two different vihno verde so we could choose our favourite. Both were excellent! The portuguese tapas was fresh and well prepared. A modern attractive decor and comfortable setting which... More

When we walked in, the waitress explained to us, before letting us sit down, that this is a tapas place, that we will want to share dishes, etc. We already knew this,but apparently some people are surprised that the dishes aren't huge plates like you often get in traditional Portuguese restaurants, or maybe some young people think it's too expensive....

We went for dinner at 8, which is early by Portuguese standards. The place was fairly quiet upon arrival, but really buzzing by 9:30 or so. Or table in the corner felt cozy and intimate, but I should advise that if you are sensitive to noise/crowds, then consider an off-peak visit (rather than a Friday night, which is when we... More

The food was quite simple, but it was done so very well. It was a very late lunch when we went in and service was very good. We were on a short timeframe due to our flight, but the service was pretty speedy by portuguese standards and were had no worries with time. I would love to go back for... More
