I am a Southern girl and I know my chicken! The fact that they use charcoal and wood to make the meats was so wonderful to smell and see while cooking. Staff was super kind. We got the Mista 1, Chicken, Ribs, and Sausage and...More

What great chicken! One of our cheapest and best meals in 2 weeks. Uber driver waited while we ordered and took back to our place. There is a park nearby as well and a couple of tables inside. Oh and have the rice, olives and...More

I paid 3.5 euros for the lunch deal which absolutely filled me up! So delicious. The only downside is that it’s small and there’s a bit of a wait as they make it. I’d say a 15min walk to the train station

Tiny, but brilliant! The best grilled chicken I've ever had, just right amount of spice - not too much to overwhelm the juicy chicken. The homemade crisps and salads were excellent too Great service, we were lucky to get a table (only two tables inside)...More

We came within advertised hours, however the owners claimed the place is closed. Bad service. Try something else. The toilet is ok

My boyfriend and I are very big chicken lovers and we are constantly on the search for the tastiest one yet, this was by far the best chicken we have ever eaten, and fantastic value also. Not just that but the salad was so fresh...More

One of our best meals in Lisbon was the takeout from this tiny place. We got an entire cut up chicken with rice, hot homemade chips, and salad. Absolutely delicious, but be prepared to wait a bit; this is not fast food. Inexpensive too.

Lisbon is great, but this place makes it even better. The food is amazing and yet so simple to order. Make sure to get a combo and tell the waitress if you want some extra spice and stuff. There's not much sitting here - but...More

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
