Build in a old market for fish, the restraurant retains its old market like layout and looks.... SImple place, with great service and excellent collection of fresh fish.. the location is not the most convenient but if you love fish , go for it...

Good fish restaurant, certainly not the best in Lisbon. Too pricy. Especially didn't like the fact that all side dishes (baked potatoes, salad and vegetables) were being served as if part of the main dish. No information nor explanation that they are an extra charge (10,5 euro) on top of the 45 euro for the robalo for 2 people.

I have been fortunate enough with my job to have travelled far, stayed in some of the best hotels and eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world, that should give you some context.

One of the best restaurants to eat fresh fish in Lisbon. The clams are always perfect. I always take my foreign clients to visit this restaurant, it's always the best experience one can have. Finishing with their pastels and a glass of Oporto Wine.

I live in portugal so I'm a bit bias when I say that we have the best fish in the world. This restaurant is one of the finest places despite being nestled in our city's forest. The service is sublime, and the selection of fresh fish and crustaceans is insane. Best to none. A favorite with business men for lunches.... More

You will find very fresh fish but damn expensive! We selected fish to grill, I can't say it was the best ever but it was good in general.

Was taken here by a friend when on a one day visit to Lisbon. The food was superb and the service was excellent. You choose your fish and then it is cooked fresh for you. Delicious
