This is a difficult review: the staff mellowed over time the food no doubt is good, my wife had fish which she said was lovely and indeed the wine was good too but my meal was swimming in oil, so much so that I had to pour it off onto another plate to stop it dripping on the table and... More

Great friendly service outdoors. A bit over priced but it's good food and you have a good good choice. I'll remember it more for the excellent friendly service than the food but that said the food is good and imaginative but you'll get better quality and cheaper elsewhere.

This must be the third time I have been there. Very yummy traditional portuguese food. Service is amicable and the location is very convenient. The prices however seem a bit high for this kind of traditional cuisine... they offer menus in different languages without falling into the tourist trap cliché.

We had our first experience of dining in Portugal in this restaurant, and enjoyed it very much. The area and ambience felt very authentic and the food and service were of good quality, and prices were reasonable. I would recommend this restaurant to any one wanting to experience genuine Portuguese cuisine.

We ate here twice, the second time because our friends wanted to eat here. This restaurant came with a recommendation from our B&B and it was very convenient to walk there. Staff was a big plus - very friendly and attentive. The first time we ate inside, because it was quite cool outside. We ordered sardines and the octopus with... More

My wife and I had the best meal of our 10-day trip through Madrid and Lisbon at Sinal Vermelho, and it had some stiff competition! We had to wait a bit to get a table but it was well worth it. We started with grilled sardines and clams bulhao pato -- both were delicious. There was a rabbit entree that... More

Very big charge for a small bottle of water, 13 euros, and also charged 13 euros for using 2 pats of butter that came with an unordered small cheese that we did not touch. Make sure you say clearly you do not want any extras and send them away. If you touch anything, like a pat of butter, you are... More

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Lisbon in April 2017. The food was not as tasty as I expected, and the portion sizes were adequate. The meal was pricey 46.50 euros for 2 main meals, bread and drinks. The staff were very friendly and eating outside was fab. We never went back for another meal.......
