I had the salmon dish, which was very fresh and well prepared. The price was incredibly low (8 euros) and the staff was very attentive. Definitely recommend this place if you look for a good cheap eat in the heart of Lisbon.

We had the octopus, burger, spaghetti and fried chicken. Everything was great and the guys working there were awesome. We highly recommend it. Get there early - there is limited seating.

We stumbled into this restaurant in the centre of Lisbon accidentally. I had a traditional Portuguese dish of cod, potatoes and scrambled eggs, and my partner had the grilled salmon. Both dishes were delicious. It was also very reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend visiting!

We enjoyed an excellent dinner at this small restaurant. We ordered the octopus and a veg lasagna. Both dishes were generous portions, reasonably priced and delicious. The waiters provided excellent service as well.
