A place where Portuguese canned and fresh foods meet every day and where they combine to create a new concept in Mediterranean cuisine. We believe that if we sometimes eat with our eyes, then our ears can also help us to savour the best flavours. That's why you will find your meal accompanied by Portuguese guitar music every afternoon on the terrace and, in the evenings, by unique kinds of Fado.

We stopped in here for a snack and a drink on a sunny afternoon. It is right on the square, so lots of people watching. The food was fresh and yummy. Our server was very friendly.

"Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake
construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755
earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its
name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in
Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the
