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

Jantar por ocasião de aniversário. Eramos um grupo de 8 e ficámos numa ampla mesa oval numa espécie de reservado. Excelente ambiente. A chefe Marlene inexcedivel de simpatia e simplicidade veio aconselhar o menu de degustação com 5 pratos.

The 'Avenue' restaurant is somewhere we will return to, in the hope that they continue to offer their good value tasting menu. We ate this on night 2 (of 5) and thoroughly enjoyed it, with various wines by the glass that we selected from their well-chosen and good value, but not massive, wine list. Here's what my notes say: 1.... More

Modern, hard, funky decor together with hip staff and clientele (except yours truly) combined with very good Portuguese fusion food in a great location. Not cheap at 93 euros for a good bottle of Douro red a shared starter and mains, but value for money. And get a seat on the window and be entertained by the locals who cordon... More

I thought we were in the Sofitel bar, but my husband Said we were at Avenue, he had looked it up on TripAdvisor and it ranked well, so we continued to have drinks in the bar until a table was available for us to have dinner.
