“Charming evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

This was our last evening in Lisboa, and we found this nice place preserved from crowd and tourists. This is a whole : the staff, the style, the music, the wine and the dishes ... Everything contributed to make this a relaxing and special moment.

“Simple, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We stopped in here on a Saturday lunchtime, it was quiet with one other couple. The decor is interesting, the ceiling is very art deco and there are some exposed original beams.

Service was friendly and the sandwiches and salad excellent value for money considering the location.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We walked past this place 3 nights in a row, and on our last night in Lisbon, and tired of paying for overpriced average food, we decided to try Vertigo. We were the only customers in the restaurant (never sighted any customers) and this is usually a good indicator that all is not well, but this was not the case in this instance.
We had a wonderful 2 course meal, with very nice house white wine all for 28 Euros.
The young lass serving at the restaurant did not have much English, but the menu was in English so this was helpful.That same young lass prepared our meal with real expertise.
The decor of the restaurant is very unusual and kuirky.Not one of the chairs matched, but this all added to the experience.
We would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.
