Very tasty food.. Good portion size.. Small place but authentic looking. Came on a Sunday, pretty busy, lots of people inside, after us some couldn't get in since it was so busy. Good service. Satisfied.

The chicken was not done. The cheese they give you before the meal was a simple supermarket cheese - but expensive. Boring, tasteless, go and find another place.

Let me start by stating many of the negative reviews, that I've read are misleading. The five star ratings are misguided. The staff is extremely nice, after you put forth effort to communicate, after opening the awkward glass front door. The Nepali hostess/waitress/assistant is simply lovely; like all people from Nepal where we have been. She alone had me consider... More

It was really friendly and welcoming. We had arroz de gambas and it was 100% fit to what we wanted for the dinner. In the diversity of restaurants in this part of Lisboa I would still recommend it out of several neighbors.

We had the salt cod an the spicy chicken leg. Food was well cooked but was rather pricey. Service was good as was the house wine. Rather cramped with hardly any space between tables.

Waited for ages for our food to arrive, which thankfully was simple but nice enough once it got there. Went to pay with card and told they don't take cards and it's written on the door. My husband then had to go out in search of cash. He was gone for ages because none of the ATMs nearby were working.... More

This is small botega and one where you have to wait as all food is individually prepared. It is a cozy spoy and away from the maddening crowd of tourists. Nothing not to like and the prices are very good.

That's all I had - a portion of bacalhau espiritual and a glass of wine. Simple yet extraordinary taste. By far the best dish I tried over a week in Lisbon. Prices in line with - or somewhat lower than - similar restaurants in town.

Outside looked nice, but can't recommend. Even the restaurant was almost empty, we needed to wait very long. Starters was ok, but the traditional food e.g. bagalhau was huge disappointment - afterwards I went to shop to buy a mango cos I was so so disappointed.

Thank jaffaie
