Over the years of travelling we have found that the hardest thing to decide on when you arrive in a new city is where to eat. This time we decided to book a few places before we left Australia and made most of our decisions based on Tripadvisor. This restaurant was a great find and interestingly not known by many... More

We ate very well at this stylish restaurant near Avenida station. In a restaurant of quality we love to go for tasting menus to get a real idea of what the place is capable of, so we went for the five course menu and had a great meal. We enjoyed it so much we came again three days later and... More

This was our last dinner in Lisbon also, and I had chosen Avenue based on the TripAdvisor reviews. The menu and dining room looked wonderful on line, but I was a bit concerned when a friend of mine who is a native Lisboan (and knows the better restaurants there extremely well) told me that he didn't know it, and I...

Excellent restaurant, just round the corner from our hotel (Lisboa Plaza) we had the tasting menu, which was delicious. Remember that it is a little pricey.

Dine at avenue on our last day in Lisbon and had by far the best meal of our entire trip across the Iberian peninsula. We opted for the 5-course tasting menu and the accompanying wine-pairing and were extremely satisfied. The servings were generous and the amuse bouche and the palate cleanser left us wondering how we would have fared had... More

This restaurant is on the main road Avenue de Liberdad and was perfect. They brought out complimentary bread with 3 flavored butters and "green bean tempura" to start. We then had an amazing foie gras with fantastic duck livers and peaches soaked in something. Loved it. Then a chicken dish that was amazing. Great wines too.

We had a beautiful glass-enclosed for our party of 12 Canadians on the evening of June 12th which just happened to be biggest night in Lisbon--the Marchas Populares--the big parade on Avenida Liberdade--we could observe the festivities from the dining room and enjoy our meal and camaraderie simultaneously--food was traditional Portuguese but with modern twists--excellent wine list--not cheap but reasonable...

Excellent food, wine and service. The waiter explained all the dishes, especially the regions everything came from. The sea bass for two is a must. The waiter slicing and serving it at the table. A fine restaurant not to be missed

Excellent. I am a food fan; this was one of the best meals I have had for a long time. Intelligent, interesting, adventurous cooking: the dishes are rooted in Portuguese cuisine, but with many original twists and touches. It is in a smart location, and is clearly a premium place, but it is not stuffy - I was there with... More

Dear Tadashii66 Thanks for your visit and your kind comments It was certainly a pleasure to have you with us, and especially by the fact that your experience was very positive. In fact, our proposal is to show the Portuguese cuisine with contemporary perspective, with creativity and good ideas. Are always welcome, if again in Lisbon. See you soon! More
