The MICHELIN Plate: Good cooking
Simple restaurant
Right at Bairro do Avillez' entrance you can find Taberna, a must-go-to for lunch, dinner or a snack in the afternoon. A place where Portugal’s traditional delicacies are reinvented in a laid-back atmosphere, ideal for those who enjoy hearty food. Here are our suggestions: cheese and charcuterie by Manteigaria Silva, tuna steak sandwich with vinegary vegetables, Iberian pork steak, and, for dessert, salted caramel.

There's no need to spend words on the food quality, because it undoubtedly met the expectations of the cousin of a Michelin awarded restaurant: extravagant but tasteful combinations of food and in not typical-gourmet portions. I went there with my fiancee for the happy hour...fixed menu and we exit the restaurant absolutely satisfied with a full stomach and having tried amazing pairings.More

Went here for my wife's birthday and what a disappointing dinner it was. This worked out to be the most expensive meal we had in Portugal in 2 weeks. We had the Grand Mariscos, expecting fresh seafood though they basically served us cold boiled seafood...and stale bread alongside an awful wine selection. No seasonings and not even any pepper to be found. This was without a doubt, our worst meal in Portugal, hands down... what a rip off!More

We wanted to dine outdoors due to the pandemic and found that we could order from the menus of all three of the Avillez restaurants in this location. The food was very good and the service friendly if a bit slow at times, as this...is a very popular place in an excellent location. We dined here three times over the course of our two week stay and, although not inexpensive, we were never disappointed. A reservation is recommended.More

Nice little spot, but we came because of the Michelin 2020 recommendation, and this proves Michelin outdated! Stay the heck away, and find something worth it!

I ate here as part of a business trip dinner. The food was lovely with good steak and wine, and the restaurant atmosphere is nice too. Service could be a little faster but all in all an enjoyable evening.

First of al: The appearance of the whole building is amazing. The waitress showed us a 'secret' spot inside of the building wich was really nice and very kind of her that she wanted to show us. We had great food and great service. We...were sitting outside, but when you visit the place it's definitely worth it to have a look inside. We will be back!More

Incredible desserts!!! Stylish restaurant in Avillez. In contrast to the other comments here - we had a nice waitress. Point deduction for sitting on the street. But as I understood this was Corona caused.

For Lisbon I’d suggest this place is quite up-market. A combination restaurant of a bar, local taverna and fish restaurant at the back. We took taverna style small plates, hi lights were the mackerel nori rolls with spiced mayonnaise, beef croquettes and the tuna main...courses.....all very fresh and delicious. Staff were excellent, knowledgeable and engaging, helped us navigate a great local wine made near to Lisbon. Nice place.More
