We were walking all the day in Lisbon. And we visited Hard Rock Cafe and then my family wanted to eat some national food. And our guide said that it is good place . WTF?!
Nobody said us greetings , we waited 15 minutes for menu, then our waiter didn't give us choice of wine. No smile,no service. Duck was awful! My mom got the wrong soup. Food was not good, and staff full of boorishness! When I asked about password for wifi , staff snorted at me !!!!
I'm really disappointed with this place , and don't recommend it! NOWAY!!!
BTW, when we were trying to get the bill, we waited for 20 minutes and... I went to find our waiter....HE WAS READING A NEWSPAPER AND DOESN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT GUESTS!!!!!!

This is everything a typical Portuguese 'beer house' should be. Waiters rushing about madly with trays of food and beers, small tables, crowded, very noisy, and not to be missed. If you reserve you can get a table outside, much better if you want some peace and quite, but you are still in the middle of town in a busy square. The do brilliant prawns, served in a culendor with plenty of sea salt. Take whatever fish the waiter recommends, you wont be disappointed. If you haven't booked, you may well have to queue, but its worth it

From a recommendation from our concierge to our personal walking across the road by our hotel porter from the Avenida Palace Hotel this was a culinary delight. Very basic tables and chairs al fresco but the food is why you are there. Cheek to cheek with other diners from all over the world. A very pleasant couple of hours spent.

If you’re looking for luxury, this isn’t the place. It’s small and cramped. But, the food was fantastic authentic Portuguese fare. Waiters were great and service was personal and attentive. It’s no frills or fuss but we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Clams were divine, espetada was heavenly and all whilst being served by 2 lively waitrons. As a South African who likes Portuguese food, I loved this place!

Not good! Over priced food! prawns was old, too warm and too salted.. mixed bbq was soaked in oil and garlic, with no resemblance of bbq at all! The waiter was pointing out 4 times that tip was not included!
This place don't deliver anything of what the Portuguese kitchen can offer, even at low standards..
