True Portugal - with some Italian spirit

The pace is situated in a rather modern part of the city, and it is so nice to have it like a little island there with old-style mansion and a very nice green inner court full of flowers It is the place where you can rely on chef's recommendations: we were quite satisfied with our choices, and... read more

The food is a bit heavy for summer. The staff was nice, except one of the waiters. It is a really Nice palace to have a quiet meal.

We read lots of positive comments on here but we were also aware negative one too. It was so average in terms of foods. Nothing special. Or even below average. But not cheap. Same as other places in Lisbon, staff were lovely. But that's about it. I wouldn't recommend my friends. Sorry. The setting is pretty though. 行く前にいろいろなレビューを見て行きましたが、料理は大したことないというか、平均以下だと思いました。ですが、ガーデンはとても素敵ですが、友達にはお勧めしないと思いました。 スタッフはとてもフレンドリーです。子供に風船で犬を作ってくれたりして対応してもらったのはありがたいです。

Odd how there is no mention that every 3-5 minutes a flight goes over low enough to make all conversation come to a stop. The only thing that was missing was an odor of jet fuel. The staff were nice and tried, but just got it wrong on many fronts. Some of the problem was language, some was training and... More

The setting is nice and relatively quiet, except for the occasional jet passing overhead. The food is uneven, with some things being pretty good (grilled langoustines, skewered chicken), and some things being only ok. But the real problem was the service. Inept bordering on negligent is the best way to describe it.

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 tables. Inside the walls... 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
