We asked the staff at our 4 star hotel where the best place is to have goid Portugese cuisine in Lusbon and they all said that this was the best place. The food is good, we startes with the codfish cakes, garlic prawns then the octopus, which was served with rice cooked in the octopus stock. It was nice but not amazing. The espadata, steak on a skewer was really well cooked, medium rare as we like it. Their wine selection is very good. The staff are very friendly too.

Portuguese food in general, to me, is not AWESOME. I really enjoy flavors. The more bold and distinctive the better. Portuguese flavor is very subtle, a little hint of garlic and salt is what you can normally expect. As such this place is very good. Having lived in Portugal for almost 3 years now, this is one of the better places I've eaten at. It could be considered pricey at about 15euros a plate average with many over 20euros. I got the grilled lamb riblets, picanha, and pork. All was good. We were satisfied, for Portuguese food. Had I gotten this in say a French restaurant, I would have been disappointed, if that makes sense. If you want to eat how the Portuguese eat, go here. But if you want excellent flavors try another cuisine all together.

This restaurant was a minute away from us. Received warm welcome on arriving and asked if we needed help with menu or wine list. We both had a veal dish which was cooked perfectly and garlic mushrooms to start. The waiter suggested an award winning red wine which complimented our meal perfectly.
Personally I thought it was good value for money and especially enjoyed the classical music played low key.
We plan to go again next week while we are in Lisbon .

Old world authentic Portuguese restaurant. Huge portions of terrific food. Great wine list. Attentive staff. 2 of us ate for around 75 euros I had 2 courses and coffee and he had 3 courses, including a bottle of award winning wine that was recommended. Well worth the money.

First, The location TripAdvisor has is way wrong. It is 1 kilometer south of the map location, on the south side of Av. Estados Unidos of the Americas. Food good, not great. Shrimp over-cooked. Waiter was very nice and engaging. As others say, they nickel and dime you to death, charging for bread (barely edible rolls served without olive oil; my wife did not touch hers and they put it back in the drawer to serve the next person!) and olives, which they bring without asking. A very pleasant place, extremely nice wait-staff, OK food, but overpriced.
