Went there with our 2 year old who took over The show. But the waiters entertained her for half an hour. Too bad the food was just plain

A typical restaurant in the Bairro Alto of Lisbon, but absolutely not a "tasca". I ate a "cabrito" (lamb), but I'm still trying to digest it, and I went there a week ago. I think that the ingredients used for the various recipes (the menu is very wide and counts a number of meat dishes, fish dishes, and vegetables dishes)... More

We arrived at this restaurant around 3.05pm so the first thing that i can say is that a very good side to this place is that it has generous opening hours (we found the place we wanted to go to was certainly closed by 3pm as most establishments are in Lisbon) which we were certainly grateful for. We wanted to... More

Very good selection of food, especially sea food was perfect. The service was very quick although we were 10 people at the table.

We ordered 3 different meals and all were generous serves. Quality was good as was the service. Not a place for a romantic meal as you are packed in pretty close to each other. Only place we ate in Lisbon that the beer came in a chilled glass. Cost was 68 Euro for 4 mains, 3 wines a beer a... More

My boyfriend and I had lunch at Va e volte our last day of the Lisbon-holiday. In the middle of the day this is a nice, quiet restaurant with tables outside in the narrow Bairro Alto-street. The service was ok, not very friendly, but they served us what we ordered and was always available. The Va e Volte-salad was very... More

Actually we were looking for another place to have lunch but that restaurant seemed to be closed on wednesday. We were hungry and choose to have our lunch break in this restaurant. We had to wait quite long for boiled fish and fried calamares. The food was ok but you really shouldn't go specially there for that. I even think... More

We dined there on two successive nights. Service was excellent, The menu was varied and typically Portugese and the wine was excellent. Prices were quite acceptable and the value for money made you forget you were sitting on a backstreet pavement.

Had planned on going somewhere nice, ended up here instead. Starter was an entire chorizo sausage that had been cooked a bit longer to make it just that bit harder to cut with human teeth. Main was squid that looked alive, but had clearly been cooked in boiling butter for about 40 minutes. I could tell because it arrived in... More
