Dining room correct, but not particularly cosy or attractive. Service is friendly and helpful. Set menus and a la carte options. Good variety. Good wine list with a good range of prices. Good food, Portuguese cuisine, nouvelle cuisine style. Relatively pricey for the level of restaurant.

We had two large tables and there were also several other groups and couples in at the same time but the service was still attentive and timely. We had a selection pre-ordered but each course was very tasty & well prepared. Only 2 of our group found they did not really like the style I think because they prefer a simple honest plate of wholesome food rather than several smaller courses of dainty food as we had.
The picture actually shows my least favourite of the courses a carpaccio of scallops and whilst I love most sashimi, I found the texture too soapy together with the mango dressing. All other courses were delightful.

This centrally located restaurant on the first floor of a building on the Avenida da Liberdade turned out to be a real find. Recommend requesting a table overlooking the avenue, and going for the accompanying wines for whatever menu you choose to order. The service is impeccable and informative, especially in explaining why particular wines were chosen to accompany the finely crafted dishes. Whereas the others went for an extensive degustation menu, I opted for the vegetarian menu. Amazing!

We had dinner here for New Year's eve. Wonderful foods and wine pairings. The chef is inventive and everything was delicious and well presented. The staff go above and beyond to explain the foods and wine and to make sure you are comfortable. The spacious room overlooks Avenida da Liberdade Not inexpensive but a great value for what you are getting.Highly recommend.
