“Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

A bit difficult to find, a liitle out of the tourist quarters, this restaurant with his backyard is truly a gem. I am glad, we made a reservation. So, we got a warm welcome and a table outside in the yard. It looked very romantic. Around 9 pm all table were full. As I said, great and friendly service. The food was extraordinary. I had black pork and my wife some sort of fish (sorry, can't remember). My son struggled a bit with his thai curry and the coriander inside.
The warm chocolate crumble desert was a great finish.

“Dare to enter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

At the top of a straight climbing street, you we dare to enter the restaurant. Don't hesitate, open the door. It is a charming place. We were over there end of July. We booked a table for 2 a few hours before. Just after entering we were asked to wait a few seconds in an old English style room. A few second later, a cup of sparkling white wine in the hand we followed our host downstairs in an absolutely unexpected and amazing garden. Some kind of a haven of peace in the city. Very quickly, it became difficult to believe that we were in the capital city of Portugal. It is wide enough to be quiet, not to feeling lonely. On top of the charming atmosphere, service was nice and the food very good. I had the grilled octopus, well prepared and tasty. All in all, it was very pleasant and not too expensive. One of our best memory (of restaurants) during our journey in Portugal.

“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!!
