“Fabulous Portuguese Fare in South Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

On a recent trip to visit family in Miami I chose this restaurant out more because of a desire for Portuguese food than knowing anything about the restaurant. The appetizers were plentiful for five adults and everyone in my party was extremely satisfied with their main courses. The chouriço assado and Espetada Mista à Portuguesa were flavourful and the Vitela Assada fell right off the bone. I'd definitely go here again on my next trip to Miami.

“A piece of Lisbon in Miami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

If you like Seafood, Old Lisbon continues to provide great quality. They do many things right, but they have mastered the Cod fish!
The Cod fish, in any of their offerings, is the Best in Miami, period!

We try mixing it up, but always order the Cod Croquettes, Un-believably good! The Paella is also very good, made while you wait and served steaming Hot!
Last week we ordered the grilled Seafood platter and it was fantastic, with generous portions of Scallops, Fish and Lobster.
We keep going back and the food and hospitality only get better; The owner is always around and has a great staff; Sandra is a WONDERFULL server and always makes us feel welcomed.
Old Lisbon has stayed around for so long because they keep things simple and the quality of the food is top notch. I highly recommend a visit to Old Lisbon when in Miami.

“One of the best international Portuguese restaurants ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

I have been there three times. The menu is extensive and the food is just like eating in Portugal. Service is fast and friendly. The atmosphere is great as well as location. I recommend you book a table otherwise it may be difficult. The only thing I would like to point out is that the three times I went there I was looking forward to eat a few "pasteis de nata" and they had run out. Not good as this is the best dessert ever....

“Amazing food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Old Lisbon is one of the best restaurants in Miami!! The food is so delicious and the service is also great.. Is a must go place if you like to eat portuguese food and even if you don't like fish, they have other awesome options.

“Authentic Portuguese Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Let me start by saying that being from Newark, NJ (Ironbound section) that is all I know about real Portuguese food... Old Lisbon is a quaint restaurant in South Miami with a touch of home. The service is always gracious, the food is cooked to perfection, and the desserts are worth having. You also have the option of indoor or outdoor sitting which is very nice. My husband and I have made Old Lisbon one of our date night restaurant.
