The last time, we were here with the same friends. Unlike some reviewers, I don't have a problem paying for the 'appetizer course' which is now clearly stated on the menu....unlike in the past. What did tick me off, is that they also "offered" us oysters which we were then charged additional for. When my husband called them on this,... More

We had the best pig in all Portugal there. Besides, everything was very, very good. The place, an old convent, also deserves attention. Higly recommended!

I agree with so many reviewers that refer to this place as a trap. Here they even charge for the water they serve! Special filtration process was the reason...A real scandal to be charged for tap water. There was a horrible and pricey entree' that went by the name of "delicatessen" which was meaningless as a food. The ambiance is... More

It is obvious A Travessa was once a fine dining experience. It now seems to be surviving only on a previous reputation and impressive ambience. It was the worst meal we had during our 4 day visit to Lisbon. A Travessa was obviously taken by surprise by a January cold spell, but this is no excuse, the restaurant was extremely... More

The welcome is always excellent. The menu is always exciting with a unique starting hot and cold hors d'oeuvre and a fine and season varying main course - you will not leave hungry. Good to see a good local clientele enjoying their variety with truly professional service.

Very welcoming when we found the old convent site down a back passageway. Impressive ambience. Quick service. Mixed quality starters on the table - note that this seems to be normal in Lisbon restaurants and adds to the price! House wine perfectly acceptable Large portions. Cooked foie gras prolific. I had the lamb. Would go again even though a bit... More

We enjoyed dinner overall. Staff were nice and attentive. The black pork starter was very good. The venison and lamb were very good. But somehow it didn't gel into an outstanding whole the chaotic mix of starters may be partially to blame. The black pork was very good, two or three others were ok, average. A couple were no good.... More

I asked the concierge at the Ritz Four Season's Hotel for a recommendation of a restaurant where my wife and I could celebrate our wedding anniversary. He recommended this restaurant along with several others. After reviewing the menu he had at the hotel we decided to give it a try. From recent reviews, I noticed several customers not happy with...

The restaurant is located in a former 17th century covent, and the location is really lovely. Unfortunately, this is about the only positive thing that I can say about the restaurant. My experience is actually very similar to many other reviewers: The waiters are either extremely arrogant, or they are extremely unsecure. In any case, they lack basic training. While... More

Sorry but this was not a great experience. Service was overly up front and forceful. No choice given over the starters By the time the mains were offered my wife was to full to have any Prices were at least double that of other comparable restaurants. over 7 euros for a very ordinary glass of Vino Verde.
