It's a little restaurant which seems understated but we were told it served one of the best Piri-piri (local roast) chicken in Lisbon. We were not disappointed when we came here for lunch. The chicken was juicy and flavorful and the spicy sauce is available for you to add onto the chicken, if you wished. The head waiter/manager was very welcoming but the waiter who served us was initially reluctant to accede to our request when we said we wanted to share all the food we ordered but later was courteously efficient. But the chicken overcomes all, so make a trip here for a great meal that comes at a reasonable price.

A friend of mine lived in Lisbon last year and recommended this restaurant for a good, typical, roasted chicken meal. The restaurant is near other similar restaurants that offer the same fare, but it looks a bit more fancy from the outside. Don't be fooled. I don't know what the other restaurants cost, but this place wasn't expensive. We ordered a full chicken, simple salad and fries along with two drinks and the bill came to just under 30€. The chicken was delicious, tender and with a crispy skin that had been incredibly seasoned. There was a yellow sauce that came from roasting itself, which tasted of lemon and butter. So good! I highly recommend!

We sat at a table in view of the door, and the line for chicken stayed a constant 10-15 people deep as we ate our meal. Clearly the locals love it.

We were welcomed without a reservation and at first were treated very well. Unfortunately there was a mix up as I ordered the chicken and my partner ordered kid but the food wasn't cooked together so we waited ages and my chicken was presented cold as it sat on the counter for about 20 mins, I sent this back but it was just kept warm until the kid was ready, hence very tough chicken. A couple of the waiters acknowledged there was a problem and appeared genuinely sorry as our side dishes has arrived about 20 mins earlier than the meat. We were compensated with a bowl of fresh chips. Hopefully a one off incident and if your party wants chicken I'm sure all would be well.
