Stumbled across this in the Bairro Alta district for dinner. The Cod dish was the best we had but the remainder just OK. Sent the standard bread and cheese entree dish back with no problems (otherwise you pay for it). There was no service really...More

Lovely sangria. The alentejo steak was good too. A tureen of octopus rice was brought and could have fed all of us. Didn't enjoy the rabbit and clams. Good friendly service and ambience.
