We had a group dinner at Volver de Carne y Alma and it was superb. Service was outstanding from the moment we entered. A first course of delicious winter soup was followed by three additional magnificent courses. The beef in a pastry was cooked perfectly and the Douro wine accompanying it was excellent. We would definitely return for a romantic... More

This restaurant is a must in Lisbon. With its casual chiq environment it is a perfect place to a special event or celebration. Although not quite in a central spot it is easy to reach either by bus or car. The food is absolutely brilliant and delicious, we tried more than once the cool tapping menu which is just out...

First of all... the place is great! The food is great and the staff is very attentive! The beef is THE speciality you have to order, and the Volver Gin is amazing too! In the end.. my pineapple desert came with a cute birthday candle! I'll be coming more times, for sure! ;-)

Friendly but unprepared and/ disorganized staff. We had asked for a table in a calmer spot in the restaurant as it was our fifth marriage anniversary, and availability of such a table was confirmed on the phone. We were, despite several adequate tables being available, sited in a central table, quite near other tables and the support table (with glasses,... More

When we visit a restaurant like VOLVER we hope that everything is at least very good. It was not what happened, or at least was not what happened on this visit. The staff is attentive. The atmosphere is interesting but the music is not always the best choice although this can vary with the taste of each person. What disappointed... More

We had dinner at this place - I craved some meat - we were not disappointed at all; My wife, not a meat eater had beef Wellington and loved it, I enjoyed my very tender excellently prepared Argentinian rib eye; Appetizers were fabulous Hard to find location you need a cab or Uber to take you there

We enjoyed a romantic dinner with great food, wine and service. We shared the baby beef, which was cooked perfectly and the sides (especially the fried vegetables) where all good. The setting is real nice and very decent prices. Excellent service!

This was the second time to try out Volver and it was once again...amazing! We had the sampler starter which I highly recommend. Then for the main course we had the duck and steak. Everything is cooked to perfection and is full of bold flavors. Volver is the perfect place for a romantic dinner with amazing food!
