This small restaurant serves food based on the tapas concept, but it is good old fashioned typical Portuguese food. It is great to try all the different typical dishes from Portugal in only one night. The atmosphere is great and recalls the old traditional food places from Lisbon. Need to get there early, or else you will have to queue.... More

This is a charming Lisboa restaurant. The food is excellent and typically local. The service is very helpful and friendly. The decor is cosmopolitan, rustic and warm. This is the kind of place you gladly order what the server recommends as we did. We were very happy from starters, main course to desert.

Figs! brilliant service, wonderful Alentejo wines (that you won't find all over the place). Twice in three days. Wander around the hills of Bairro Alto. Miradouro de Santa Catarina, before or after.

Really enjoyed the variety of dishes and preparation of the food. Server was very helpful in explaining the dishes to us. Small, local place. You need to make reservations or go when they first open if you don't.

After visiting Madragao Cafe and Cantinho lusitano - the former closed on this particular wednesday - and the latter packed with guest at every table - I had to find an alternative. I happened to pass by Taberna Ideal purely by chance - and found the ambience quite promising. This turned out to be my best tapas experience outside of... More
