After being 10 days in Lisboa and trying many restaurants, finally on our last day we found this treasure. The best food we had during our holidays, and a 'sommelier' who knew something about wine. I strongly recommend this place !!!

This is a very small restaurant , you should have reserved a table Already. Good Luck. Also, they reserve the table for only 15 mins. Be there early .
