It is a really small place, a single room just for less than 20 person and really really teally worthy a visit. I came here randomly and i feel myself ''blessed''! Typical food, familiar environment and very very tasty.

Managed to get a table because we arrived at 7 when they opened. Great small tapas for sharing, we loved the goat cheese, rosemary and honey appetizer, as well the garlic prawns were delicious!

Hard to find. Need a reservation. Very small and in a residential neighborhood. However the food was excellent. We had the grilled chorizo, shrimp, and beef. Absolutely delicious with sufficient quantity and reasonable price. Have a glass of the tawny port after. It was very...More

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center

My boyfriend and I visited in May and we walked everywhere and found Lisbon to be very safe. The only thing is it's very hilly and there are a lot of small streets that you can get lost in.

I contacted them via their Facebook page and was able to book a table for 10. Just had to fit the time around them. Definitely the best meal of the trip and such a lovely couple.
