We live near Lisbon and love many of its restaurants, all of them offering great value for a Capital city. But this one is something very special and whilst a bit more expensive by Lisbon standards still incredible value by UK and International comparisons for the quality of food, wine, service and ambience. One of the great things about it... More

Clube de Jornalistas is a cool and romantic place for couples or special occasions, even though there might be one or another family there as well. The service is friendly, the food is good and so are the wines, but not top of the line. We paid about € 100 for our three-course dinner, which is expensive for Lisbon.

I must admit my company was amazing, but this place made my romantic lunch unforgettable. The terrace is a true oasis, green, relaxing, quiet. Not too many tables, the amount if space you get here makes you believe you sit at home, in the garden on a sunny day. Service is impeccable and food is really good. The waiter took... More

What a special place this was. It looks nothing from the outside - an old shop front, or house. On entering you are welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine into a peaceful courtyard where you sit and have your meal. Knowing a little of the history of this building and the fact that writers met here in difficult circumstances... More

We were here two days ago following the reviews from other people. It's all true, fabulous food, ambiance, service, wine to die for and value for money. Yes the sparkling wine at the beginning and gifts at the end were very nice touches, but in the end all I can say it was a complete package. A must while you... More

Booked after reading reviews and they were right. This place is a gem. From arriving with glass of fizz through sitting in lovely courtyard and then having great service and fantastic food this could not be faulted. Every part of the meal was excellent but highlights were the prawn risotto and the plate of sweet things we shared and which... More

This was a night to remember. We were greeted at the door with sparkling wine. The menus was presented in an envelope ( very creative). For the first course, my husband ordered the corn soup and I had the spicy tomato. Both were delicious. We couldn't decide on entrees so the waiter offered to split two of the them for... More

Fantastic restaurant with friendly, helpful staff and superb food. We were greeted with a glass of bubbles and shown to our table. We were sat on the terrace over looking the gorgeous tree filled courtyard. The staff made fantastic recommendations and the food was delicious! Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Lisbon

I booked this restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday meal, choosing it above other recommendations I had been given and taking something of a leap of faith. Luckily my instinct proved correct. We sat outside in the lovely tree-filled courtyard garden, lit by a very bright moon and began our meal with a complimentary glass of bubbles as we looked at... More
