Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I recently dined at this restaurant, a haven for grilled fish enthusiasts. The ambiance was cozy, with nautical decor adding to the seaside vibe. The star of the menu, the grilled sea bass, was impeccably seasoned and cooked to perfection, offering a delightful blend of...smoky and savory flavors. Accompanied by a refreshing lemon garlic sauce, it was a true culinary masterpiece. The attentive service and the chef's evident passion for fresh, high-quality ingredients made the experience even more memorable. This place is a must-visit for anyone craving an exceptional grilled fish meal.More

We saw the place on the web and we were immediately curious to try it so we booked a table for noon. We arrived a little sooner but the place was already open and our table ready. We ordered 3 fish dishes and a bottle...of green wine. The fish was good, sardines were enormous and octopus and squid very well cooked. The tables are small but Alfonso managed to make everything fit on them. Wine was good and even better were the desserts. Sweet and refreshing, a good ending for this lunch.More

Was pleasantly surprised by this small, but super charming alleyway restaurant. My husband found this place by chance while we were walking around town and I'm so glad we ate her. This is a no-reservations, no-nonsense restaurant that emphasizes fresh seafood and grilled meats in...the best way. Some of the reviews about the food being bland made me hesitant at first, but to be honest, the simple approach to good quality food with minimal seasoning (mostly just salt flakes, pepper, lemon, and generous amounts of olive oil) were perfect. It really helped the quality of the seafood and meat shine. Ordered the dry white wine, grilled ribs, and mixed fish platter. Everything was perfect! Will be back again next time we're in Lisbon.More
