Good Portuguese restaurant and menu at fair prices. Staff friendly and helpful. Does not look great when you enter but the food and ambience is good.

Don't miss it of you're anywhere close. You might have to look for it (you do) and it might look closed (it does), but the food you will find (and the prices of it) will leave it well marked in your memory and on your map. A must in Lisbon, Great local food, low prices, amiable staff. Do recommend and... More

The restaurant is very simple and cosy, the exterior might put you off a bit but the food is absolutely delicious and fairly cheap and the staff is very nice and helpful.

The place is most frequented by locals and as a canteen. Very friendly and helpful staff (english-speaking staff), food is cheap compared to other places. The inside is *very* simple and might seem dirty, but it's the typical non-fancy Portuguese. Not 5 stars because I felt the codfish was a bit... fishy :) Rest of the food was excellent for... More

We actually didn't order anything and let the staff bring us what they suggested. Everything was really good, from the starters to the meat, fish and dessert. Big surprise when we saw the bill as it was very cheap for the five people we ate. We are repeating!

Just good. Meat (secretos de porco preto, lagartos...ask for the beans and the picante), fish (bacalhau). Reasonable prices. A bit loud. Open almost every day.

Excellent quality products for a really low price and friendly staff. Is a non turistic place where you will find local dishes for a nice price.

We tried the grilled Cod on the recommendation of another reviewer. I'm afraid I had to leave mine as it was extremely dry and fishy smelling. The vegetables were over boiled. The chips were lovely, almost proper English chips! There were two Bangladesh guys working there who spoke good English, which was very helpful. We also has a cheese cake.... More
