Nice tapas.

Nice place for a tapas style dinner. We were a group of nine and asked the staff to serve tapas of their choice. It was very nice. We were served a very good port wine as an aperitif. We felt this was an affordable dinner. The location is a bit off the main tourist spots, but if you stay at... read more

Excellent food. So good we ate there twice. 2of the 4 of us do not eat seafood or fish. Trying to find a place to eat in Portugal is a bit of a challenge, as you can imagine. We had the steak and it was very good. Done to perfection. The seafood was also excellent.

Denise and I had lunch at Rubro once and dinner twice, it was right next to our hotel, Hotel Lisboa. The food was excellent and the service was the best we had in Europe the three weeks we were there. If there was a flaw in their delivery, we would have found it after three visits. There were none.

We ate lunch and dinner at Rubro. The restaurant is located about 200 feet from the Britania Hotel, one block of the main avenue. Modern decor with bench seating. Lots of business people for lunch which always is a good sign. Food quality is excellent and the wine was superb. Service was perfect. For tapas or a main course it... More

Visited this restaurant twice in a 4 day break in Lisbon. The first time was on a Saturday night when we arrived without a reservation at 7pm. They were fully booked but we were offered a table for 4 as long as we we were prepared to finish our meal by 9pm. This was fine with us and we sat... More

We were recommended Rubro by our hotel, Porto Bay Liberdade, which is situated near by, on the other side of Avenida da Liberdade and a very good recommendation it was. The Rubro offers either the usual mains menu of steaks, pork and chicken or a selection of Portuguese Tapas. We chose the tapas on both occasions. There is a good... More

This is an example of an exelent quality restaurant, with fair prices.It is nor cheap, but it is fair, considering the quality. It also depends on you appetite, and how many dishes you want to try. But believe me, my appetite is big, and as long as you drink the sggested wine for the day or week, the price will... More

We went as a couple , but it would also work well with larger groups. You sit on long tables with bench seats. Don't be put off by this description it is a stylish restaurant. Excellent food, good service.

When the group meal is outstanding it is hard to believe that a la carte could be anything less. We arrived after a long day and they were completely ready. We had a variety of appetizers/shared tapas dishes, all of which were very good, followed by a delicious main course and desert. Everything we had was cooked perfectly and tasted... More

This restaurant in the center of Lisbon offers great portuguese food at a reasonable price. Very nice environment and stilish furniture. Perfect for a dinner with family, friends or for business.
