Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely ambiance with lots of old school charm but food was very average. Croissants not flakey, uninspiring coffee. Pricey in line with the ambience. Inattentive service. Not one to come back to.

Lovely place to sit outside and get a cup of coffee and a pastry but the food was just so so and the prices were very high. A little touristy

Don't bother, long queues out side to be seated inside which is where you would probably want to be on a cold evening. Went because of the hype and the fact that we had visited a lovely café in Porto that sounded similar. Great open...mike singer entertainment outside but too cold to sit out for us. Great range of cakes. The detailed cleaning was very poor with grimy mirrors and smelly toilets . Our hotel and our taxi driver were surprised that we had been recommended this place.More

It looks and probably is a very touristic place one of those I don’t usually frequent but it was noon and we were tired so we sat there for a small treat I had the Amêijoas à Bulhão Pato (clams ) which were perfectly done...with a rich and tasty sauce ( see my review of Tapisco where they served a poor version of the same dish with the same sauce). my wife had a salad with a large portion of tasty goat cheese That’s all we didn’t try anything else and the 5* goes to those 2 well prepared dishes.More

It was just a quick light-bite for lunch as we passing but there we made (for us) a VERY important discovery. Some people visit countries and places for the best local dishes, some for the wines, some even for the best steak and chips. My...better half and I seem to test the benchmarks by a Caesar salad and Eureka! We found (arguably) one of the best Chicken-Caesar's EVER. Creamy, garlicky dressing (and copious) with crumbled crispy ham over generous chicken pieces, croûtons and Parmesan shavings. Deeeee-lish !!! We forgive the spam-like (allegedly famous) Beef croquette starter that was totally eclipsed by the Salad. Bon continuation and don't change ANYTHING on those salads !More

This place is in a pleasant location, in one of the busiest roads of the town and it is very beautiful, especially the interior. We ordered for lunch a sirloin steak and the bacalhau (cod) plate. Sirloin was a bit hard to chew but had...a great coffee sauce. The bacalhau dish was absolutely exquisite! The ingredients were harmoniously combined and the plate was so tasteful. The stuff was also polite. A bit expensive, but it is worth a visit.More

Most of the visitors go there because of its decor and it’s on every touristic book. But the place is vastly overrated. It’s a long line to get in and the desserts are definitely not the best I had. Literally the store next to it...Benard has by far tastier dessert and is more authentic. Gave a 4 star ranking for the decor.More

A real scam! My friends ordered a mojito (€18! For Lisbon it's still very expensive) and I ordered a Virgin mojito, which was certainly not on the menu. But since I don't drink alcohol, I order this drink all over the world, and every time...I order it, the price is adjusted for this non-alcoholic drink. The bill arrives, and what a surprise ... the Virgin mojito is charged at the same price as with alcohol! That's 18€ for a lemonade with lemon and sugar! And the manager was arrogant and didn’t accept to discuss the subject … A real rip-off ! They take advantage of their location and arrogance for any discussion. A real shame !More

A nice historical place. Good ambience but could get busy with long waits. Food and drinks are good (not great) and overpriced. Might worth the experience.
