The food is average. But wine handling is excellent, the waiter has high knowledge on the wine card.

Were there last night. Really bad service, awful food and the waitresses dont know anything about wine.. They try to hard, not worth the cost at all. A real huge disapointment after reading all the good reviews here on TA. My girlfriend got raw meat and then got food poisened the same night. DO NOT GO THERE!

In my opinion, this restaraunt is overated on trip advisor: the food is nothing special and overpriced. The waiters are not the kindness (except the young one) and the whole impression is that they're based on one time tourist. The only advantage is the nice terrace.

Beautiful terrace, perfect for a warm sunny day in Lisbon. Very good service from a team of friendly good professionals, who really know how to interact with customers. Food wise, very good couvert components (but beware of the cost...), the "ovos mexidos com farinheira" starter is just amazing; the main courses offer interesting and delicious options. Good desserts as well.... More

My fiancé and I loved the warm, cozy atmosphere of La Gondola. The restaurant offered an extensive wine selection, with many bottles reasonably priced. The menu has a sufficient number differently prepared entrees to choose from. We especially enjoyed the king prawns, and the fettuccine pecsadore was excellent! We also shared a chopped garden salad that was tastefully dressed. We... More

The restaurant is located very near to the Gulbenkian Foundation and Museum, It has a wonderful garden fresh and full of shadow. The cuisine is a mix of good Italian pasta and risotto (I tried tortelli filled with sea food and they were outstanding) and traditional well cooked Portuguese fish and meat. I had also an excellent gazpacho. The choice... More

I came by this restaurant accidentally after arriving in Lisboa a few hours ago. The rstaurant is immediately inviting with its lush plants and old-world personality. Sergio, my waiter, was friendly and wanted to do nothing less than give me the best that the restaurant had to offer. I had two of the specials: 1) mushrooms with mozzarella cheese, served... More
