We stopped here for a quiet lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. We ordered fried potatoes, codfish cakes and cod tomato pasta. Each dish was beautiful. Would highly recommend. Also had a lovely glass of rose and a cappuccino.

Located in a stretch of restaurants and bars near Praça da Ribeira dismissed by Lonely Planet as “tourist central”, this restaurant is definitely an exception. Food and wine were both quite good (the cod was excellent), and the wait staff are incredibly nice…. and exceedingly...More

This restaurant is situated between all the other more touristic restaurants on the river front but it is not to be skipped over. We just got a few items to share and enjoyed everything in addition to the Mediterranean vibe and aesthetic around us. Staff...More

Paolo was our waiter and service was excellent. The food also was excellent. I have written this perhaps a little too late to go into details of the food but I do recommend this place.
