This was the second time I went to Volver. The 1st one, still with the stamp of Chakal, was already pretty good, but now with their meat and wine selection, they took the restaurant to a whole new level. Highly recommended

Fantastic décor (quite captivating!) The maturated meat is superb and the siders too (although we asked for sweet potatoes and it was served with mixed potatoes - we'd rather have had just the sweet potatoes and if they were sweet potato chips, it would have been even better!) The desserts are too sweet! All in all it is a great... More

The wait for the food was very short, we just started our cocktails and the food was already served. I had the wagyu beef, but I really doubt it was the real thing. It tasted more like a normal steak, still good, but not wagyu quality.

We went there for lunch, based on other Trip Advisor reviews, and were most pleased with our food. Great meat, great service. We had a very exotic smoked cheese cake dessert with caramelised beetroot chips which was quite a surprise! Our meal for two, with wine, cost just 49 euros. We took a taxi, but it is very close walk... More

I went to the restaurant for a diner and first was very surprised with decorations. Very tasteful, modern and most of all cosy! The food was amazing with several flavor meticulously combined in each dish! A very good surprise.

First of all, be hungry if you are going to this restaurant. The entry tell you right away that this place is "in"! The decoration is modern with peculiar lamps that keep the light soft and offers a smooth and calm atmosphere. Do make a reservation! The house was full. Ok, it was a saturday night still... Commanding the "floor"... More

We had a group dinner at Volver de Carne y Alma and it was superb. Service was outstanding from the moment we entered. A first course of delicious winter soup was followed by three additional magnificent courses. The beef in a pastry was cooked perfectly and the Douro wine accompanying it was excellent. We would definitely return for a romantic... More

This restaurant is a must in Lisbon. With its casual chiq environment it is a perfect place to a special event or celebration. Although not quite in a central spot it is easy to reach either by bus or car. The food is absolutely brilliant and delicious, we tried more than once the cool tapping menu which is just out...
