My boyfriend and I went here for dinner and we enjoyed a lovely dinner. I had dory, he had lamb, and both were tasty and reasonably priced. Positives: Friendly waiter, good atmosphere (lots of locals seemed to dine here!) Negatives: Slow service Overall, would recommend for good value dinner.

We were searching for a typical place to eat portuguese food but not too touristic. The lunch menu is quite good and cheap: drink+soup+main dish+desert+coffee for 8,5€. You can choose among 3 dishes either fish or meat. The portions are generous and the staff is friendly. Although is a very small place there's wifi which is a point

So this is probably the first time ever I gave a 5 rating. This is the best place in Lisbon we ate so far. The price quality is simply amazing. It is a real authentic Portuguese cuisine with very very friendly personnel. 8,50 for a 3 course meal, wine and coffee. How about that! I ate al la carte however... More

We went specifically for the prawn rice and were not disappointed. A large serving for two with plenty of toothsome prawns left no room for anything else save for the very respectable bottle of Duro White. I cannot understand the presence of a few bits of surimi alongside the prawns, in endangers a good dish while offering no enhancement. Pleasant,... More

I can't really talk about the food, as we waited for about 50 minutes for our fish, before finally going back to the great Indian restaurant right around the corner. Also, it didn't seem as if the restaurant was extremely full at the time. We asked twice, after about 30 and 45 minutes only to be told to wait for... More

The restaurant serves mainly Portuguese dishes. Service was very friendly and the food we ordered was actually very tasty. Prices are reasonable as well. It is located slightly off the main tourist routes so the atmosphere is relaxing and pretty quiet. Liked it a lot. Would go back.

The restaurant is very simple, but the do they serve is great. The television might be a bit disturbing, but we recommend the food. Great value for money.

We took the lunch at this restaurant. The meal was very good and delicious at a resonable price. The meal included soup, the main dish, drinks, desert and coffee. There are two type of menu with or without desert. At noon there were a lot of people, most of them portuguese.

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "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 Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
