Very good burgers, we tried the americano and mexican one and it was de-li-cious. Very good lava cake as well for desert. Service is great, staff all smiles. Very good choice if you are full of the traditional local food.

Good choice of veggie dishes. We had the chips and portobello mushrooms to start, they were super tasty, followed by the chickpea and feta burger. The chips have the skins on 😊There is no bun but a larger burger with a smaller one on top...More

A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site,

"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
