Returned after two years, still a wonderful place

The first time I was in Lisbon two years ago, I fell in love with this restaurant which is so picturesque and charming, at least to me. It is right across Berna street from the fabulous Gulbenkian Museum. When you go in you go through the outside courtyard which is full of attractive plants as well... read more

Excellent meal, good atmosphere, cozy, very friendly staff, and fantastic desserts. A place to come back soon. It was the place we chose to spend this Valentine's Day

This was my second time in this restaurant for dinner. Unfortunately there were some problems with 2 dishes that took too long to be served. In the end the management was nice to offer the coffee/tea. The food is very good. I had a saltimboco with an excellent rice. The staff is very friendly and the space is very nice.

On our first night in Lisbon we called to La Gondola, which was a ten min stroll from our hotel... The restaurant is very nicely laid out especially for dining al fresco, but being December, we opted for indoors. The dining rooms wee immaculate, always a good sign, and there were other parties dining, again a good omen! We were... More

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
