We had fish, it was really fresh and perfectly cooked. In particular sardines were really tasty ( be prepared that you have to clean them by yourself as usual in portugal).

Really nice meal in a lovely, quiet setting. Very good English speaking waiter. Grilled squid drenched in garlic was fabulous and the seafood and rice pot also great. Hard to find in small Alfama lane but worth the hunt.
