Went here with 2 friends and had the amazing mushroom and chestnut tart, codfish salad and the famous peach crumble with agua de choc mousse with firewater! A few mouthfuls can make you feel a bit tipsy! Would definitely recommend!

This restaurant was recomended by the hotel and that ’s why we went there. The envyronment was good but for me it was too noisy. The food was ok but not amasing. It is a place where you can go but don’t expect too mutch.

A small restaurant, apparently always full. One of the waiters sat down at our table ("eclectic tables and chairs, probably no two alike) and explained their "philosophy" - which is that food is meant to be shared.They suggest that a party of four should order four "tapas" and one or two main dishes. The menu changes, but we had the... More

So, my third time in Lisbon. First time was in 1998 for the world expo. Seems like forever!!! Then the second time around 4 years later and it was like the first time. This time was as well. Lisbon is a place that renews itself every time and that welcomes whomever visits it with a warm and welcoming embrace full... More

We were extremely nicely received, the waiter explained the menu to us very patiently. It seems that the dishes are changing continuously. The place was packed and people seemed to enjoy it. We also enjoyed especially the big veal steak and the desserts, less the starters. For 60 euros including a bottle of wine for 3 courses for 2 people... More

I have thought it in the past and the thought is stronger than it ever was - Taberna Ideal is just too expensive for what you lastly get. The portions are actually tiny and the prices are just short of what you would pay for an actual main course in any other Lisbon restaurant that could be compared to Taberna... More

Came across this restaurant on a travel blog and turned out to be the best meal of a 5-day stay in Lisbon. Went for lunch at 2 on a Sunday and at first my friend and I were the only people in the restaurant but by 3 it was packed. Waiters are extremely attentive and helpful and food is amazing.... More

We tried to get a meal in another restaurant which was fully booked and they recommended us to try here. So glad we were able to get in - suggest you always reserve in Lisbon! We were advised by the waiter to order for 2 persons 2 tapas and one main - actually we were not that hungry and ordered... More

I had high expectations but was somehow disapointed. The service and atmosphere are good, but the food could be way better for the price they ask. Can find better places for the same concept (and not too far away).
