One of the things we noticed immediately is that they did not have a pushy 'promotor' trying to get you to eat at their place. This was a plus for us. The location of this restaurant is great. A cozy, lively alley and view on...More

Based on only two of the offered dishes these people know their meat. My flank steak with chimichurri and sweet potatoes was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. My partner's ribeye steak was equally well prepared. Also top marks for friendly service.

Amazing amazing amazing. The flank steak with sweet potatoes was sensational. I split that and the fried mozzarella with my sisters. If your looking for some good meat in Lisbon go here!

My steak had a lot of connective tissue. I had to ask the waiter to bring a steak knife, because he didn't do so when he brought us our steaks. Potato chips (they don't serve French fries or mash) are not bad, but are impossible...More
