expensive

We went there because it was crowded. The food was good but really expensive for the ridiculously small portion size. I would suggest to avoid it if you are looking for authentic experience.

My wife and I had dinner here after finding that the restaurant we originally had hoped to dine at was closed. We were attracted to Tapas 28 because it looked crowded from down the street. In reality their 10-15 outside seats were full but a lot of the other people outside were just hanging out nearby and not diners. Although... More

Stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for a place to eat in Lisbon's Bairro Alto. Nice ambiance, both inside, and especially outside in the alleyway. The food was delicious and the portions a good size for sharing between the two of us. Our waitress was very friendly and spoke great English.

We found the service to be good, atmosphere was great, the food was Ok (not bad but nothing to rave about) but I must agree with other reviewers... More

We stumbled across this place after walking round for ages looking for a tapas bar. Although pricey we found the service friendly and the food tasty. We had Spanish omlette with chorizo, garlic prawns, veal stew and mixed croquettes ( they call them wraps). The house wine was good and my girlfriend had chocolate moose to finish which she loved....

The outdoor seating on the steps of the narrow street looked cool and attracted us to the restaurant. However, the food was mediocre at best. Breaded cheese tasted and looked like it was from the freezer. Potato side dish was plain. Prawn risotto was good though. Pricey too considering there are better bars and restaurants in the area. Avoid for... More

Sitting outside in a quiet street, great ambience. The Tapas are very good but a little expensive. The service is very good.
