“Lovely evening in Lisbon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

I went to Portugal on vacation and some portuguese friends recommended Avenue as the place to go if one wants a great meal with an amazing view. We had the tasting menu that included one appetizzer,a fish course,a meat course and a dessert..my personal favorite was the braised tuna,with sweet potato pure,vegetables and chips, I couldn't stop eating it!!The service was very nice and efficient,we had the wine suggested by the sommelier,since we don't really know portuguese wine,and it was definetly the way to go!I higly recommend dinner at Avenue!

“Classy restaurant serving Portuguese food with a twist”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

A good place to go if you want to dress up, enjoy attentive service and savour the evening. Yes it is a little pretentious....(why do they bring you the cork for goodness sake?......though the wine list on the ipad was great, as you could find out a lot about each wine). Food and service both pretty good, and we found the portions generous. They make traditional Portuguese food......well ish, but a bit more upscale, and there is a lot of effort in the presentation......it tasted good too, starting with the bread and battered beans, through salt cod and duck mains to the chocolatey caramelly Pão de Ló for dessert. The bill was a lot lower than London prices for the equivalent. Wine was good value at 22 euros for a sauvignon blanc from the Lisbon area. Fabulous view from the window tables.

“Avenue - Wonderful Restaurant in Lisbon, Portugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Extremely courteous help. Wine is priced at a range that does not break the pocket. Modern, noveau atmosphere. Innovative menu, using Portuguese traditional foods, but in a new and modern, updated way. Tasting menu for people intrerested in trying multiple different foods without ordering too much. We went not just once, but twice, and had the testing menu both times.
Great location, close to Avendia metro stop, and close to TI.
We would highly recommend it. Bev & Eric

“I like the food & the service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I choose this restaurant based on the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is nice. The place is quite smart. Very happy with the quality of service. They use an iPad for the wine list which makes sense if you update your list often. The food was good, wine as well. I would recommend this restaurant for business too.
