Double the prize and half the quality from the rest of Lisboa. I assume that they have another cook or another owner now, when I see too all the positive recommendations. Don't go there, ever. On picture, the leftovers (only fat) of a 6 euro...More

We came across this place by random and were immediately charmed by it. The staff was very friendly and understanding regarding the ingredients we couldn't eat. The food was delicious and the prices very reasonable although it is Alfama district!

The waiter was wonderful here (he was from Italy) and we had a good time. The French fries are really homemade chips. The food was good overall. The cherry liquor shot he brought at the end was wonderful!

You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.
