Given the good reviews, we dropped by in February 2014. The restaurant is now closed and a cafe is there instead. We didn't stay to either catch the name of the cafe or eat there.

Tasting menu is great with a fair price. Great wines available and a lot of them from small portuguese producers. You can also ask for a wine tasting experience. Nice service. The place itself could be better: it's small with very basic decoration. For sure...More

It is well worth walking out of the historic centre to find this small, non-touristic restaurant, which proposes good quality and creative food. Excellent wine. We tasted the lamb with fried polenta: the meat was perfectly cooked, very tender and juicy.More

Disappointed with the decor. Strong lights, cold and empty. Seemed more like a day time café then a restaurant. The food was ok but I wouldn’t rush back to eat there again. The wine list was poor, no in between prices; it went from cheap...More

Lunch in this restaurant is an occasion! If you enjoy high quality ,innovative food,at reasonable prices,this is the place. The Chef must be very talented to continually provide such high standards. Wine list is excellent. Well worth a visit.

Small restaurant, young team of passionate people about food and wine. We offer some traditional Portuguese tidbits, a dynamic Tasting Menu changing monthly, and a selection of tasty, comfort food, aiming to please varied expectations. Nice Portuguese wine selection, and a really sought after dessert wine list.
