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!

We ordered tuna sashimi but they were out of tuna. we ordered salmon sashimi and 2 hot rolls. The salmon sashimi was just great. however I cant say the same about the rools. I'm a big fan of Japanese food and eat it quite often. Unfortunately I have never seen a roll be served with that much sauce. The rice... More

This restaurant has modern look decor, friendly staff and good sushi rolls. We liked all the sushi rolls we ordered here, and the special detail about this restaurant is that we wanted to order a seaweed salad, and they did not have it on the menu. So later on the sushi chef offered to make one for us, how cool... More

I love sushi and think the quality and artisan choices at SushiCafe cannot be beat. I've never had sushi with apples, but it was terrific. The dessert cannot be beat. I wish I had this restaurant in my local area. I would go all the time. By far, our favourite meal in Lisbon.

I visited this restaurant because my hotel restaurant, the Yakuza by Olivier at hotel Tivoli Jarden was closed for a private function, and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is decked out in a modern decor, with smoking and non-smoking sections. I walked in off the street on a Tuesday night and had no problems in getting a table for... More

I love sushi and I heard Sushi cafe Avenida is one of the better option in Lisbon. I must say I was not disappointed. The fish is very fresh ( I had Cevice, Sushi and Sashimi) and there are many other options even if you're not a sushi lover. The decoration and ambience is very nice and is walking distance... More

The menu is really good, the sushi is tasty and high quality, but a little expensive for the service that includes. The restaurant is not consistent between food served and the service provided.

Visited this restaurant earlier this week and was a bit underwhelmed. The decor is fantastic but the staff seem to lack service skills. No friendly faces here. The Sushi and Sashimi were just ok, fresh enough but lacking in taste. Have tasted much better at home in Scotland. Probably an expensive mistake in choosing this restaurant.
