Third time at this great nice spot in Oeiras, serving mainly Portuguese-Asian fusion, enough to have an informed opinion. Very low profile place, tucked away behind Oeiras church, not obvious to find and definitely not the type of place that shows up on Time Out (fortunately...). The menu is extensive, which makes it difficult to choose, as everything sounds delicious. What impresses at this place is the flawless cooking. It's great and, sadly, rare elsewhere to see ingredients being treated this way. An unknown Chef who delivers meat and tuna cooked to perfection, rice fluffy and loose, crispy vegetables. No fancy sauces with loads of cream or butter, no fancy foams, emulsions or reductions, you can actually understand what comes to your table. Unapologetic flavours, not disguised or toned down to please the crowds; they are what they are, like it or not (it's difficult to dislike). The braised tuna with ginger and red chili is wonderful, the variety with sesame seeds is to die for, I could go on and on.
Value for money is adequate, one person can eat for less than €15, with wine and coffee; two persons or more can get a better deal.
Excellent, informative, friendly service.
This place is so good that could only exist outside of growingly pretentious Lisbon. I'll be coming back over and over again.
