Reviewed 15 September 2013

We were agressively lured by 3 different restaurant workers to go into restaurant.. who even said if we did not like it, they would pay meal..

Well, we thought what my husband ordered was not what was on his plate, so I got up to ask waiter PEDRO FERREIRA, to see menu again to make sure... He angrily went to see plate and realizing it was indeed what was ordered, he proceeded to loaudly get angry at our questioning that fact; as he walked away from us, he kept on screaming, getting all customers to hear his rampage and upsetting them too.

The food was not bad, but our dining experience was affected by this.

I first complained, to whom represented himself as boss for the night. Someone else came by to say he was boss for the night. When I asked to speak with owner, "he was not around". I asked for book, so I can write comments... , well there is no book... The least thing I expected, was for waiter, to apologize. It took a while... and he later did, after much insistance from others in restaurant.
I want to say DO NOT go to this restaurant. You do not know how your dining experience would be. They are sharks that lure you in, so STAY AWAY.

They have a website and fb page, but one cannot put comments, not surprisingly.

we arrived Lisbon and hotel directed us to Rus Correerios for dinner. We should have taken notice of the fact that this supposedly food street wasnt that busy, rather there was a porter in front of each restaurant frantically asking you to come in and brandishing their cheap menu for you to look at on the street. Eventually we opted for this restaurant, a group of nine - 5 kids under 8 and 4 parents. Menu shown were food at about 15euro per adult meal. Of course as soon as you all get seated, coats off and kids screaming for food, the story started.
Drinks for kids are like 2x what they cost outside. Different menu presented, you are coarsed to choose from their more expensive foods as the others were suddenly not available, the sea food basket for 4 came with enough for just 2 people, even the single lobster claw was nicely split into two! Calamar was suddenly missing in the basket and mussels were 8, so just pick 2 each and add pick 2x prawns each also. Dont touch the basket full lettuce they used to make things look big, we found them unwashed! And the price for this basket? Euro59.00.
Then the main course of sea bass and potatoes with salad. After our experience with the lettuce, we did not touch the salad at all, and just took the fish off. The kids meal were no meal at all, so we ended up ordering 8x supposedly adult size meals for the 5 kids. Oh, we made the mistake of eating the bread on the table only to realize that these are charged at 1euro each. Same pricefor the butter, the size as typically served with hotel breakfast.

By the time we asked for our bill, we ended up with euro 250! No wine taken, one round of soft drinks/ small water and additional 2 small water. We left hungry but as soon as we got to the square with the two fountains, we were lucky to find a McDonalds; we wont typically do McDonalds for the kids, but this helped for the night before we headed back to the hotel. When we told the guys at the restaurant that their tactic is fraudulent, they just shrugged it off, I guess enough tourists come each day and fall in their traps.
