We visited this so called Tapas restaurant which was near to our apartment. From start to finish this was the worst experience I have ever had in any restaurant in the world. The meal started with an Unordered basket of dry bread and aioli. We...ordered 4 dishes from the 80 or so on offer. Each one was inedible. The goats cheese and jam was clearly frozen and had not been thawed. Horrid. The stuffed mushrooms were horrendous. I’m still not sure how any chef can ruin a mushroom but this one did. Foul. The recommended black pork cheek was so sweet that it took away any flavour. I could not eat any of it. The cod dish was a zero with no flavour at all. Horrible. The waiter was a nice Jamaican guy who clearly knew how horrible the food he was serving was. No offence to him but whoever owns this place should be ashamed. Do not eat here ever. All the bad reviews are correct. This now rated as the worst meal I have ever paid for in my life.More

The food was amazing and there is even a wine shop in the back if you want to buy a bottle! The staff was also great and really fast!

Small plates of delicious authentic Portuguese food. Nice presentations and a great selection of wines. The staff is helpful in explaining the extensive menu. They even sold us a half bottle of port to take out! We would definitely return!

To say the food is poor and overpriced is an understatement. £60 euro for a sangria and 4 exceptionally poor tapas dishes that appeared to be frozen food in small portions. I wouldn't even have identified the patas bravas dish. Throughout eating I did think...to complain but just thought it would be cheap as so awful. I don't have any photos to post as the food was processed beige crap. avoid this place. They also bring you out bread etc when you sit at the table and it's all added to the bill, I asked for one portion of something and the brought me two, anything to add to the already massively overpriced bill for awful food, I could produce better from my freezer.More

My wife and I were out exploring and she suggested tapas for lunch, and this was the closest place. It was fortuitous choice, because everything we had was great! We arrived just after the lunch crowd so they were not busy, so we got a...table on the back patio to catch the breeze. Besides a great meal, it was also reasonably priced. The panna cotta for dessert was especially good.More

Just ate here 10 minutes ago. Excellent tapas and sangria. Great patatas bravas, padron peppers, fried baby squid and calamari. Very friendly staff. Close to the tourist Chiado but no tourists in this place. Nice back terrace. Highly recommended (don’t listen to the bad reviews).

Us: mid-60s couple, USA. Fairly active. First visit to Lisbon. We visited twice this week, looking for tapas & wine as a light dinner (after eating a large lunch). Both early-evening visits were enjoyable. Staff was friendly & attentive. Prices were perhaps a bit high,...but not unduly so for the neighborhood.More

we popped in here for lunch. Had some tapas and beer and enjoyed our time here. We were the only people in here but not sure why. I imagine that it must be a lot busier at other times?!!!

Completely unassuming spot with genuinely friendly staff. Popular with travelers and “lisboetas” alike. Reasonable and authentic.

While visiting Lisbon we visited the wine store to choose from a vast selection of Portugese wines and then stayed for a lunch. The interiors inside is very nice. The food was simple but delicious. The staff was super-super friendly and attentive. Enjoyed this place...very much.More

We are mostly vegetarian and were looking for a Tapas restaurant that had a good selection of vegetarian items on the menu. We stumbled upon the Tapas Bar 47 a couple of days ago. We had dinner here and loved the food. There are many...vegetarian options on the menu. The service is a little slow, but friendly. we enjoyed our meal at this restaurant.More

The waiter was impatient and impolite, the food quality way under the average of Lisbon. We spent 75€ to get frozen tapas. Ridiculous.

They tried to rip us off. They trick tourists by placing chorizo and bread in the table with no permission. Prices are really expensive(big bottle of water cost us 5€) and the quantity of food scarce. Avoid this place!

The interior surprises with a potpourri of styles, but the atmosphere is friendly and inviting. Service was ok, not super attentive, one of the tapas arrived after we had almost finished the meal. Quality of food medium, overly oily mushrooms filled with asparagus, semi-hard goat...cheese put on lovelessly prepared green salad. The downside: prices for the tapas are far too high, at least 50 percent overpriced. No good value for money.More
