We were the only guests between 7pm and 8pm on a Saturday night which says a lot I fear, The waitor was friendly, spoke English and gave us a warm welcome. The food was average (I had cod which was good but too much oil, my wife had pork which was a little overcooked) but good portion sizes and reasonably... More

No atmosphere or heating. Food well below average. Maybe try next door which unfortunately was closed when we visited (Floresta do Salitre ). Whatever you do go somewhere else

Well What to say about this place ? I think it survives only because it is next door from the excellent floresta do salice. I will mainly describe what you will find there factually : - cold place with the main area shared with one television showing Loudly soccer and 3 fridges running noisily. Even if ugly, the place is... More

I don't know how the food is but the waiter was rude. The restaurant was open, not full and when we ask for a table his reply was he had no time!!! Terrible customer service.

We stayed in Tivoli Lisbon for 2 nights, and walked couple minutes on a back street to the restaurant for diner every night. It is a family restaurant with traditional Portuguese food, focus on seafood. Each night, we had different seafood, and everything was delicious with very reasonable price. Each dish portion was larger than we could eat, but we... More

We had dinner on Friday 30th September at this traditional restaurant near our hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and the lovely waiter was very helpful in his suggestions for wine etc. We both had salmon which was perfectly cooked and tasted very good. Would highly recommend visiting here for a traditional Portuguese meal in very informal surroundings.... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant on a side street and made a reservation for dinner. The gentleman working was friendly, eager to assist and do all to ensure we had a great experience. The decor and dishes are traditional Portuguese, almost like being in someone's home. I had the lamb stew and this dish was what I compared every other dish... More

Our intended restaurants were shut on Sunday evening so decided to chance this one. We were the only people there at 7 -ish (folks eat late here) but the diners trickled in later. We enjoyed the entertainment by a sole singer / guitarist who sang a repertoire of popular songs which wasn't annoyingly loud. The food was Portuguese, tasty and... More

Visited this restaurant in May for dinner with friends while on a city break to Lisbon. Delicious Portuguese food including some dishes with a local 'twist' such as steak cooked in port and cinnamon. Nice decor and a relaxed atmosphere made for a vey pleasant evening.
