Their Beautiful garden setting provided the perfect place for a very special meal. From the moment we arrived until we left the staff looked after us with great attention. Accompanied to this the most important was the food tastes good too... The steak was Amazing with a capital A!

“fantastic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

I took my mum here as a birthday treat and it was a fantastic choice - the staff were lovely and friendly and the service felt really personal, though slightly more expensive than some restaurants the food made it well worth it - beautifully put together and presented, some really unique dishes - my mum had the best dessert she says she has ever had! Truly a great restaurant and definitely should be at the top of your list when visiting Lisbon!

“Best Meal in Portugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

Clube de Jornalistas is Amazing!!
We found it in trip advisor and from the moment we walked in we were blown away.
The restaurant is located in what's looks to be a residential district, in an old building that has its front door locked. While each inside room is decorated very tastefully, we ate in the outdoor courtyard.
The menu was amazing, quality of food was 1st rate and the tastes were transforming.
Must find and go here!!

“expensive but good/service meh”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Food is very good. I am Italian and the risotto is very, very good. I had the prowns and melon, my friend the moqueca of prowns...fantastic. Chocolate cake with hazelnuts probably the best I have ever had in Lisbon (better than Cruzes Cafe, yes). Place is fantastic: you eat in this lovely garden...the inside of the restaurant is great too. Atmosphere is very good. Service slow as hell (we were the only one). Very expensive: risotto is the cheapest thing and is 15 euros.
This place is meant for couples or people who want to impress. I imagine that unless you are rich you wouldn't really go there to drink and have a meal with friends.
Food was not stunning to me, but worth trying out once. The chocolate cake tho...I will go back for it.

“Good food - very nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

Tried the risotto with shrimps; portion size was very good (some comments saying they were small but we didn't think that). Good flavour and risotto cooked very well.

Ambiance was nice both inside with the beautiful rooms and in the garden below which was lovely and shaded.

We were the only table aside from another table of three; service was slow considering they weren't busy but we weren't in a hurry so it wasn't a real issue.

Enjoyed the lunch but not somewhere I would hurry back to as it wasn't amazing.
