    Excellent Portuguese food with a good price quality rate. Certainly worth visiting in Lisbon. Portions are perfect as well and the Portuguese wines too.

    The food was great as well as the presentation. We tried the melon soup, a salad, the mixed starter and the cod. All of them were "different" from standard food. Dessert were also great. Overall a magic food experience, with a very charming and nice service. Thumbs up! A must try if you visit Lisbon.

    A terrific restaurant tucked away from the main tourist hot-spots but well worth the diversion. Attentive, informed staff who combined efficiency with a relaxed touch and good humour. Loved the unicorn head mounted on the wall. Unique! Would definitely return if in Lisbon again.

    The waiter was super nice and kind they have ready our table and the place is a small restaurant but very clean and simple (except for the unicornM). Our disappoint came with the food specifically with the octopus, it was not tender and all and the avocado was super hard, you couldn't even pick it with the fork unless you tried super hard it wasn't ready to be eaten, finally, the roast beef salad was ok but some parts were super salty. Hope next time they won't serve dishes that ingredients aren't ready to eat.

    Fantastic staff! They couldn’t do enough for us. The food was amazing with some lovely combinations and the steak on the “stone” was brilliant. Will definitely go back again next time we are in Lisbon.

    Nicely designed dishes - contemporary and modern. I had the tuna with oyster foam, blends well. Had fish for main course and it was perfectly cooked. The portions are smaller in comparison with other restaurants in the area; but leaves room for dessert
