For the price they charge, the food should be much better. Also some attention to the details would be expected for this kind of price. The service is rather good, but that's only about it

this is a Portuguese idea of Italian food, or the other way round. situated on the corner of av. d. Berna and praca d. Espanha, in an old townhouse among modern buildings (and at the back of the Gulbenkian museum). has it's own garden where you are not aware of the traffic nearby. there is a difference between exclusively vegetarian...

Recommended by hotel staff at Real Parque hotel. Went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary on a Saturday night. Lovely open air courtyard setting. Great food and friendly staff. Superb desserts and waiter recommended a decent bottle of red wine. Reasonable value. Would definitely eat there again and recommend to others.

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 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 that giant tastiest...

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
