In general, we were satisfied with the experience, although quite different that other Lisbon eateries. This place is proud to be Feng shui, eco, organic with offer of gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan... read more

This is not an easy review to write because we love the hotel this restaurant is in, but it is so at odds with the rest of the place I have to report as I have found. We thought the restaurant decor and presentation was not as well designed, it had the atmosphere of an under attended gastro pub. The... More

Don't let the location put you off (it's part of a hotel). Food and service both excellent. Octopus starter was very, very tender. Rack of lamb superb. Short wine list, but the Viognier in particular was excellent.

Went to this restaurant as an alternative to the more rustic cafe type restaurants as a treat for the last night of our break in Lisbon, having had it recommended. We went on the second night's service of the 'new' menu of the season. We were a party of three and there were around 10 other tables of 2-3 diners.... More

Open Brasserie was the perfect dining experience. The restaurant has welcoming, smart and sophisticated. The menu is well-crafted, not to big and caters nicely to meat eaters, vegetarians and also offers lactose and gluten free options. The food was divine and the service was impeccable . I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Lisbon
