This is a family friendly restaurant that you could easily miss if you don't look properly; it is located on an uphill pedestrian alley and there is no sign (even outside the restaurant) to help guests find the entrance. I had initially shortlisted this restaurant...More

My wife and I were visiting Lisbon and had a fantastic meal here. The location is in an old convenient with a lovely courtyard and a restaurant with vaulted ceilings beautifully furnished making it a lovely setting. Most importantly they had fantastic food.

In a former convent, an excellent dining experience. When the weather is good you have to eat outside. Nice service, very friendly. The chef needs a star! Try Lombos de Peixe Galo (fish), or Medaiions with truflie (meat). As for wine you can try Soalheiro...More

I made reservations at this restaurant for my husband, myself and 2 friends (who were on their honeymoon) as it had received good reviews. We were very disappointed in our experience - very subpar food at very expensive prices. We certainly don't mind paying for...More

Went for our first wedding anniversary dinner. Was absolutely incredible. They brought out at least six 'starters' I honestly didn't know how the price was added up but our bill (including two mains and a VERY nice 2001 cab sav) was 150 euro! Atmosphere was...More

Existing in an old convent, this beautiful restaurant room has excellent food and wonderful service. A range of starters are provided at the beginning of the meal, all interesting and flavorful. But not for the patron who wants just simple food. The menu has very...More

When we were told of this restaurant it wasn't mentioned but having eaten there everybody was dressed smartly, I would suggest what people call smart casual, hope this helps
Hi, you are not alone as we had the same treatment. We observed that everyone (unless big spenders) had the same rushed meal. The people visiting are mainly tourists that is why the restaurant gets away with their attitude. They get a lot of Americans which is why they think only of money. Miss this place next time in Lisbon.
