R. João do Outeiro 24, 1100-584 Lisboa, Portugal
We came here on a rainy day. I loved the cozy and local ambiance. True that the house wine is good. We split a meat dish, fries and side cheese were great too. Dessert was delicious.
I can't talk about the food because I never got to try it, but I can talk about my experience trying to eat here. When I arrived the place was super crowded, there were people waiting outside, this was a Friday at 3pm. I told the waiter that I needed a table for 2 and he proceeded to write my name on a list and told me to wait outside and that they will call me when they had my table. So I waited outside for about 20 min and they start calling people that were before me on the list until it was just me and another 2 person party. I waited for about 10 more minutes and a Chinese couple stood behind me in front of the door so I told them to go to the waiter so he would write their name on the list, so they wouldn't wait in vain outside. To my surprise they entered the restaurant and where seated immediately, so I went inside and told the waiter that I was on the list and that I should be seated first he told me I can get you a table but I have to clean it, I said ok, but he proceeded to give menus to the Chinese couple, bring a beer to another table and attend to other people while I waited. Finally I seat down, he sets the table and instead of giving a menu and taking my order he proceeds to attend to other tables. I call his attention and he says just a minute and continues doing other stuff, to his defense he was the only one attending customers but still I should have had a table and a menu in my hands long time ago. There was another lady that came out but went directly to where the Chinese were seated and didn't look serve anybody else, meanwhile a couple of guys who are regulars there and arrived after me got their meals in a few minutes. Anyway I got tired of waiting and the bad service and left without saying anything. Maybe the food is good but not worth it to beg for food no matter how good it is.
Amazing food!!! Great service!! HUGE portions. A great value for your money. Also the house wine was excellent!! I let the friendly waitress choose my new for me and absolutely no regrets!! Amazing!!
We enjoyed lunch here after a recommendation from our AirBnB host. I would recommend it to everyone. Authentic Portuguese food.
So good, a hidden gem. If you miss the tiny sign on the narrow street, just ask the locals. Try the octopus, it’s divine. Right next to it is a pastry place, you can also have coffe there. Highly recommended.
