Stumbled across this place one lunchtime and sat in the 23 degree sunshine by the Targus enjoying a bottle of rose and salads. I had a cheese and seed one and my friend ordered the crab and mango which looked fabulous and she said the crab was both plentiful and fabulous. Highly recommend it for lunch.

This restaurant was proposed by a local friend. The cuisine and flavor is exotic and remind me of some Southern and Southeastern Asian style, which is curry-based and mixed with coconut milk, fresh herbs and fruity dressings. The result? Like a symphony of different flavors exploding in your mouth and spoiling your tongue. The crab salad and the crab curry... More

Mozambican beer and Shrimp with a view to the Tagus river. Cool spot to eat different food. Loved the Mozambican cuisine. Right next to the cycle path so bikes were well too :)

It's a great place next to the review. Even though we visited in February, I imagine it's only nicer in summer. The food choice is great: from traditional Portuguese to somewhat exotic Mozambique flavor. Nice and friendly service. I found the prices to on the high end for Portugal.

It was a rainy and windy day. However, it was well worth waiting for this place to open its doors for an early lunch. The food was outstanding. The presentation fab and great wine. The service was also very friendly and professional and to top it off, good ambiance. We would certainly go back here again.

I loved going to IBO. As a northern guy from Portugal we do not usually say nice things about the south but I have to say that Ibo was a good surprise. Excellent food, wonderful view of the riverside, just everything perfect.

This review is a bit late in writing but nevertheless, its worth my time to share with future diners. IBO is a little restaurant with a postcard location on the Tejo river. On nice warm sunny days, its recommended to sit on the veranda outside. However, sitting upstairs gives the diner another view of the river which is also relaxing... More

We had been recommended to eat here so had high expectations. We were not disappointed. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and feels very sophisticated. Menu choice was fantastic. My eldest son said it was the best main course he has ever had! The service was great too. Loved the music. We will be back. Keep up the hard work.

We've only eaten the Moçambique food, which very well cooked, presented and served! Portions are generous. The location is fabulous. It is a little pricy, the no point! And even though I understand the reasons why they are out, I wish that they had Laurentina more often! But definitely an experience to repeat!

We tried Ibo because of a "favorite pick"-suggestion in our guide - and they were SO right! This restaurant will be one of you most memorable ones ever tried: Amazing food (the fried shrimps stick make you feel like you're in heaven, the Tenderloin beef melted infront of your eyes, same for the fish curry, the mint mouse au chocolat...
