The place is really neat and decorated according to the fact its the journalists club. They even have a back patio with some tables there. The service was excellent. They give you a glass of... More

Gorgeous, romantic restaurant.. Wonderful service and excellent food. I have a severe nut allergy and it wasn't a problem at all. Lovely desserts - chocolate soup with passion fruit mousse was beautiful and Mr B had six types of ice cream - all homemade! If you are used to London prices, this was very good value.. A little over the... More

Our last night in Lisbon we went for dinner at the Clube de Jornalistas - which, by the way, is not just a fancy name, but a real reporters club. This place has all details covered: on arrival a glass of sparkling wine, on departure a token gift (I got a tin of sardines) and everything in between. The location... More

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
