Really nice meal in a lovely, quiet setting. Very good English speaking waiter. Grilled squid drenched in garlic was fabulous and the seafood and rice pot also great. Hard to find in small Alfama lane but worth the hunt.

Very fresh and excellent seafood. Quite big part of grilled calamari or grilled cuttlefish for about 10€. With a small effort on this service it would be perfect.
