We booked this place using fork and got 30% discount, so tried quite a lot and weren't disappointed, except one dish.

Singapore chilli soft shell crab - to much rice and chilli, actually it felt like eating rice with hot ketchup.. don't recommend at all.
corvina fillet - my girlfriend said that this was really good.
2x glass of wine, bottle water,
australian pavlova, sticky date pudding - both desserts were tasty and maybe a little bit too much, especially puding was quite heavy. SO be prepared!
2x coffe

Paid 41.75

The place has very nice interior and the atmosphere is romantic and chilling. Would recommend to pay the visit, especially if you can get a discount.

Flavors from the world in an amazing tribute to Australian Modern Gastronomic scene. Be ready for a feast of great innovation with some amazing ingredients such has kangaroo, duck, soft shell crab, crocodile and much more. The pork belly with crunchy skin deserves a big shoutout. Congrats to Chef Justin Jennings and his team for an amazing work right in the heart of Lisboa.

We went there with a group of friends and were extremely well served by the staff. We ordered crocodile and a trio of smoked hams as starters and both had very good quality. The crocodile was superb. As a first course we asked for the duck with sweet potato mash and the kangaroo with jam and veggies. Both very well made and tasty. For dessert we chose the apple crumble and the pavlova, both good but not excelent. We enjoyed the fact that the chef came to our table to say hello. Overall a very good experience.

Fomos com um grupo de amigos e fomos muito bem atendidos pelo staff. Pedimos de entradas crocodilo e um trio de presuntos, tudo com muita qualidade. O crocodilo estava espectacular. Como pratos pedimos o canguru com compota e legumes e o pato com puré de batata doce. Ambos muito bem confecionados. De sobremesa pedimos o crumble de maçã e a pavlova, ambos saborosos mas não surpreenderam quando comparado com os pratos prévios. De louvar o chef ter vindo à mesa cumprimentar-nos. Foi no geral uma óptima experiencia.

And the Pork belly... I’m wordless!

We had a wonderful meal, in a beautiful, tasteful and ambient room, and lovely service. We could not have hoped for better for a romantic birthday dinner. All of the dishes were fresh and full of flavour, and a true representation of innovative Australian style food. The duck was a highlight! Everyone should try the sticky date pudding! (We are one Portuguese and one Australian, for a balanced assessment :) ) Thank you Justin for helping the home sick Australians in Portugal to have a taste of home, and introducing our fantastic flavours to Lisbon!
