Visited this restaurant with a group of 4 persons and none were disappointed. First entering the restaurant we were given a free glass of sparkling wine each inside a truly nice old style Portuguese house and it got better after this. We were given a table at the inner court yard which was beautiful and tranquil. Just splendid place to... More

Maybe not the best meal we ever had, but it clearly is in the top 5. It is a wonderful overall experience. It is unfortunate that the many surprises at Clube de Journalistas are no longer surprises, since the reviews tell all. But that does not detract from what was a wonderful evening. The chef takes fairly standard items and... More

We decided to visit Clube de Jornalistas on a busy Friday evening based on the reviews from Tripadvisor. We did not make a reservation I nadvance but the hostess promptly found a good table for us. As soon as you step in the restaurant, the initial perception is that you are visiting some exquisite press office or lavish house. Very... More

We visited Lisbon for one night in September so relied on the reviews on trip advisor to find a nice restaurant and we were not disappointed! On arrival we were treated to a glass of prosecco and were seated in the lovely outdoor courtyard which was decorated with lights and candles. The food was delicious and the service was great....

I had high expectations of Clube de Journalistas after reading the Tripadviser reviews and I wasn't disappointed! Being greeted with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine is an indication of the attention to detail here, and you are shown all of the uniquely decorated rooms before choosing your table. The building itself is stunning and the courtyard is beautiful, although... More

After making a simple reservation, I arrived to find out that the table wasn't ready yet. One would find that strange, but the fact that while waiting I received a nice glass of white wine made and was received with a smile made the waiting time fade easily. The couvert were simple but full filing, a dish of a variety... More

I had booked this restaurant in advance after reading the terrific reviews on here and can honestly say although I knew what to expect I was still blown away. The concept of this restaurant is probably its biggest USP and I have never visited a restaurant like it. The branding is spot on and I loved the attention to detail... More

From the moment you arrive and are handed a glass of chilled cava, to the moment you are handed a little gift when you depart...the whole evening is fabulous. The setting is great, the service too...really lovely and patient waiting staff and all seem passionate about you having a great evening. I recommend the baby squid as a starter, so... More

We had a great time at Club De Journalistas. The food was fantastic, particularly the pork loin, and the waiters were very attentive, especially the new trainee waiter! (Not sure of his name) one minor thing would be the lack of music in the courtyard, it felt like it needed some music in the background for the overall atmosphere. Apart... More
