Description: If this is the first time you open our menu, Hajimemashite!(Nice to meet you!)If you are already a customer, He Yôkoso!(Be welcome!)The age and the familyIt was on the 13th December 2005 that we opened the SushiCafé Amoreiras and we never imagined that after 6 years we would be here and already with 4 restaurants established (SushiCafé Avenida, SushiCafé Amoreiras, SushiCorner Colombo e SushiCorner Atrium Saldanha). We are now a numerous family and all of this owed to you. Thank You!The Fish qualityAlthough we changed the dimension we never changed in what is really important, the fish.We still buy the best Tuna in the world, the Bluefin.It belongs to the specie Thunnus thynnus, from the cold waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the bluefin is the largest tuna there is and therefore the most tasteful, we may see the different types of meat as the akame (less fat), chu toro and ho toro (more fat).Our tuna is captured according to the Japanese know-how. The tuna capture is probably as important as its quality, in a deficient capture it loses blood which means losing quality and flavour.Our salmon is upper category, 1st class of the three existing categoriesWe only buy large dimensions of salmon from Norway (6 to 9kg each) as it preserve better the flavour and consistencyWe wish you an excellent meal and relish with the best of Japanese food.Itadakimasu!Expression meaning gratitude mentioned before meals!

Large menu, good quality, great service, modern design. This is an excellent place to go for a romantic meal for two, or alternatively with a group of friends. Overall, well woth a try.

We love sushi and Sushi Cafe Avenida is, for us, the best Sushi restaurants in Lisbon. Also the atmosphere is very good.

Downstairs from Gucci, it was quick and good! I and my wife had the Yakisoba combination meal. It was delicious and inexpensive. Yakisoba and Miso soup, and a choice of two additional items.

We thought that in Portugal smoking in public places is not allowed. Upon entering, they asked if we wanted to sit in the smoking area or non-smoking section. We asked for a place in the non-smoking section.We thought that the smokers were in a locked area. After a while we began to smell smoke. When we looked around us we... More

We had dinner here and enjoyed it so much that we came back for lunch during our stay in Lisbon. At dinner for two we were seated inside next to screen wall of wonderful backlit spring blossoms. The decor is sleek and contemporary and provides a wonderful backdrop to enjoy a delicious meal. The atmosphere was lively as it was... More

Decor is fab but front of house staff are surly and unwelcoming. Service is just about adequate. Only one bottle of saki available! Sushi is adequate apart from the terrible and hideous salmon platter with strawberry sauce- ugh! Don't waste your money...

We get in relatively early but have no reservation and it's pretty full. The lady at reception asks us if we'd mind waiting about 20 min. How can you say no to that smile? She comes back to us, when she a few seconds and we talk about little things, like the changes in the bar. We actually get seated... More

Relative good Sushi for Lisbon Portugal. It was rather expensive but good to try. They also had our favorite Japanese beer Kirin Beer. One thing they could improve was the Yakitori. The chicken skewer was not delicate. Try Nanbantei in Singapore. I wish we could find a real Yakitori and a Teppanyaki restaurant in Lisbon but so far we have... More
