    Great atmosphere and awesome service! The waitress guided us through the choice of wine, allowing us to to have a taste of the available reds. Good choice of elaborate seafood dishes (salmon tartare absolutely recommended), with wonderful presentation. The desserts are a work of art. Definitely recommended, especially for a romantic dinner. Great prices too, definitely great value

    Food ok, service somewhat strained because of a full restaurant probably, which resulted in a faulty bill at the end. However everything was corrected.

    The restaurant was pretty busy, so some orders took a while. On the plus side the staff were always happy to cater to our needs. Will come back again.

    The look of the dishes do not resonate AT ALL with its taste. It's not bad, it is just miles away from what you would expect. Therefore, it is expensive for what it is. #disappointed

    The restaurant is nice. The service is slow and not really polite, I had to wait too much even for simple requests like a bottle of water, or an empty plate, etc.. The "manager" didn't even know what is a "risotto": I called the restaurant to understand if the serve Rice WITH fish (very know in Portugal) and, on the phone, she said YES... At the restaurant unfortunately she explained that, in her view, I could have had this dish by mixing two dishes: rice and another of fish.. NO COMMENT. In the end of the dinner my friend and I have started a conversation with guests of another table, and the "manager" just put herself in the middle of us, with no awareness (or no respect) of that. Very very bad...

    The restaurant have a very good atmosphere, the food is great but portions could be more generous. The service it's a bit slowly. A bit expensive for the portions served.

    Food is good but not suitable for family gathering. More for apero instead of dinner style. The waier had difficulty to understand simple English. The waiting time for the bill and ordering time was too long. Overall the quality of the food was good that's it.

    The food here was sublime. Fresh seafood with simple, flavourful pairings. The tuna tostada and the prawns with burrata were the standouts for our evening. The sides were equally wonderful, and the wine list was varied with a good selection of local wines. The lovely maître’d cum waitress laughed with us an made our evening even better! Great spot, would LOVE to return!

    Everything was just great but one small thing that was kinda frustrating: hardly had we paid the bill and thanked the waiters for the delicious meal and their excellent service, we were told to... go to the bar for the table we were sitting at was needed for next clients. We had half a glass of wine left and the dessert was still traveling somewhere in between the throat and the stomach. I tried to negotiate for 10 extra minutes to finish the wine and go... but, no (we were advised to continue at the bar). I do not know whether it’s part of the Portuguese restaurant culture but the first impression is quite bewildering the least to say. The food is delicious though. And beautifully served.

    I booked a table for 3 with 5 days in advance. When i arrive at the restaurant they didn't have a table for us and made as wait. Then they arrange a table in a huge and unpersonal group table, in a backdoor room... really unpleasant. We left!

    The food is delicious: both tacos and bao were very tasty (octopus tacos superior though...). Tuna tataki and scallop were excellent too. We were recommended white wine from Lisbon area (Adega Maè), happy with this choice. Staff prepared and friendly. The only “negative” side are the tables too close to each other, but it’s tolerable.

    Very nice tapas restaurant with lots of interesting dishes! Well prepared and nicely presented. More wine by the glass would have been appreciated though. Quick service. I would definitely recommend Espada - surprisingly good!

    The food was fantastic but we waited 15 minutes to be approached by a waiter after being seated. Our waiter also left for the evening and we sat for 30 minutes before asking someone for a check and finally asking someone else for a check. Great food, great atmosphere, but would not visit again for due to very frustrating service.
