    Great cocktails and decor for days
    We liked it so much we visited twice during a short stay in Lisbon. The cocktails were excellent and service was nice , though the star is probably the decor, or rather the collection that hosts. You'd need hours to go through all of it properly, it's quite unique and it's probably why most people go, however we returned for the cocktails as well: Manhatan dry and Calvados cocktail.

    Great find, shame about the staff
    Quirky and fun, one of our lovely tour guides had told us to give this a try. The location and style was amazing, eerie but fascinating but we found the staff surly, rude and only had pleasant service from one lady. At least 2 of the waiting on staff didn’t seem to want to be there, then were upset when we advised them the bill had 2 too many waters on it. Luckily the friendly lady remembered that the table before us had 2 waters that had been added to our bill in error. I don’t think I’d go back, despite the great interior.

    Part bar! Part museum!
    Very unique place. Part bar, part museum! However you can easily walk by the front door. And to get in you must push the doorbell for the loud buzzer to go off. Kinda of weird once inside to continuously hear the buzzer go off as others arrive. Not sure why they just keep the door open for folks to walk in. But once you’re in, this place is very unique, cosy, definitely eccentric and unique. A must see in Lisbon

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of enjoying drinks at this one of a kind bar in Lisbon. Located in the trendy Principe Real neighborhood, this amazing cocktail bar is anything but modern and trendy. And we are all immensely thankful for that. An institution in Lisbon that must be visited to be appreciated. While the staff may be a bit stuffy that only adds to its old world charm and mystique. Stop by for a drink before or after dinner and you will be glad you did!

We visited for a few drinks when the bar opened so we could look around properly/take photos without bothering other customers.it’s decorated with antiques all over, been to bars with this decor before but this is different level-like a museum with different rooms! Service very old school formal and efficient.unusual music added to the atmosphere.really enjoyed the chocolate cocktail I had.would like to return and spend a whole night here

If you're looking for a nice chilled vibe to have a cocktail do not pass this place by. There is absolutely no where else in Lisbon or in Europe or in the world like Pavilhao Chines.
There is an AMAZING variety of things from statues, to little military men to plates, mugs, dolls, train sets and on and on and on and on and on and on and on. You just have to see it to believe it.
Oh yeah, the drinks are great! My wife and I had a glass of wine and a caipirinha.
If you'd like, they have a pool table as well but won't have time to use after viewing everything.
DO NOT PASS this by.

Not for me this one. Perhaps it's because we were there early evening, but the atmosphere was a bit odd, the music was cheesy (for me, terrible). The cocktails were average. The quirky decor looks quite cool but that's about it. With so many nice places to take in Lisbons scenery I wouldnt recommend sitting in a dark, musty bar. One thing I would say is that the service was fine and the staff friendly, given some other reviews perhaps it's just a bit patchy.

Cool visual identity but over-hyped and overpriced (like everything else in that area), with a poor service and communication.
I've been to Pavilhao Chines tonight, for the first and last time. I wanted to order a simple cheese sandwich, with 4 cheese options available. I briefly talked over those options with the waiter and he suggested me to have an open sandwich with 3 varieties of cheese displayed in the plate so that I could try them all out and serve myself with the bread slices. Suggestion accepted.
Then to my surprise, when I got the bill, I was charged 3x the price of the original sandwich I meant to order. What the waiter suggested was actually a different type of dish, with a different price and size, and he was not clear about it. He didn't call the dish by its name nor brought that detail to my attention.
I explained the situation to the manager but he washed his hands of it. The waiter insisted that he correctly described to me what I was gonna be served with, I insisted the price and dish category difference was unclear, and no one came up with a solution or at least an attempt of a service recovery. I ended up paying the triple-priced bill.
I value my money and the transparency of the services I use. The miscommunication might have been unintentional (still questionable since the waiter and I share the same mother tongue and nationality) but its management was poor and reckless. All I got was disregard.
I'm not coming back and I don't recommend this service. There are plenty of better places to explore in the city.

This bar was easily the coolest place that I visited. It’s the most random, bizarre and brilliant bar. Packed full of toys in cabinets, every space is filled with something different. You could literally spend hours there drinking and admiring the awesomeness of the place. There was also snooker / pool tables. Highly recommend.

I've been here before, we had a great time last time. But this time lacked something. Couldn't put my finger on it.
Maybe mid-week in December just isn't the best time to go.
if you've not been, well worth the visit either way.

For us it was a great way to end our evening. Friendly staff. At this moment in time you cannot drink alcohol without ordering food. As we had already eaten, we enjoyed dessert with coffee/digestives.
