    We were a large parrot of 11 and we couldn’t have been made to feel more welcome. The food was amazing. The service was excellent. We had a fantastic evening! Don’t hesitate to spend the evening here.

    The perfect place to taste genuine and superb traditional products from northern Portugal. We had the platter of cheese and ham and it was delicious, also the selection of red wine and Porto was superb.

    I cannot day enough about how wonderful this place was! Pedro was our server, wine expert and all around fantastic individual! He was so knowledgeable about the food and the wine - I’m happy to say it was pretty slow when we were there because we were able to have a great conversation with him. My husband and I had a spectacularly meal and left with 2 bottles of port, a bottle of wine and some cheese to bring home. When we return to Lisbon (which I’m sure we will) we will certainly come back!

    Real Portuguese place from a specific region. Good quality, good wine, good cooking, dishes to share. I strongly suggest for lunch or dinner. Informal place.

    The young owner and staff exuded enthusiasm for what they are trying and succeeding in doing - producing and demonstrating subtle discernment in different flavours. Not like any other restaurant we have been to in Lisbon or anywhere else. These are people interested in food. The owner’s knowledge extends in full measure to the wines which he selected. A tour de force.

    Very welcoming, very good Portuguese food and exactly the right amount of explanations with it. I would recommend to ask them to put together a menu for you - it was perfect when they did it for us.

    Booked as a group of 5 couples and when we arrived a large table had been prepared for us - this restaurant is in the quieter end of town and I thought we might be their only guests that night but as the evening went on other tables filled up adding to the atmosphere of the restaurant. We weren't sure what to order so let the waiter guide us through food choices and wine... and so glad we did. We had a fabulous night, stayed here until late and ate and drank some wonderful food and wine - possibly too much wine!! Would highly recommend.
