We've tried quite a few restaurants in Lisbon, and food, in general, there isn't great. We had reserved a table at Lisboa a Noite based on reviews, and we were presently surprised. It is located in the Alta Bairro part of Lisbon. The service was...good, and the interior of the restaurant is pleasant, comfortable, and sophisticated. The waiter brought us cheese, saying it was the "best cheese in the world." It was pretty good. Our appetizers were all very good: the goat cheese in puff pastry, the octopus (especially nice), and the scallops. For our main dishes, we had the seafood stew and the duck. The duck was especially excellent. This is a place that we can highly recommend. Wine and drinks are available.More

An old school restaurant in the heart of Lisbon, delicious food and good service, though felt like we were being watched overly attentively by some of the wait staff. The food was great, but we paid over €200 for 2 people, and we could have...spent more if we had accepted the couvertes. I'd like to request to the management of this restaurant to ensure there are bins within the restrooms, to save their guests from any potential embarassment.More

Fantastic dinner in Lisbon. Filling, high quality Portuguese food. Excellent service. Well-located. A bit pricey but manageable by the standards of European capitals.

Had dinner there. The place is lovely. Great setting. They have two rooms. There is a large room for the big corporate (aka noisy) groups, and there is another room for couples/families. The food and the attention were top notch. It is not cheap, but...well worth the price. Great wine list and the sommelier was good at picking out a very nice bottle for usMore

If you like restaurants that cater to Americans, you will like this. It’s nice place but not great like many of the reviews. The food was ok. The service was weird, zero attention. There is no outdoor dining in a neighborhood full of bustling outdoor...restaurants. It was a little dark in there. I think we had much higher expectations of this restaurant given the reviews. I wouldn’t go again.More

Outstanding! My wife had the Grilled Octopus and I had the Jumbo Prawn dish. Service was on top of their game…gracious. Offered English or Portuguese menu. It was our arrival travel day abroad and we were out of gas when the dessert was offered, but…it...may be another reason why we have to come back. Looked amazing. Highly recommend. A little less touristy, side road location…which we like. Restaurant was recommended by The Iven (Marriott Autograph hotel).More

I picked this place based on TripAdvisor reviews and I'm glad I did. Servers were helpful and informative. It was hard to choose from the menu, but I can highly recommend the carmelized scallops.

This is an excellent restaurant with incredible food and service. Ironically, my wife and I went here 10 years ago and unknowling revisited it based upon a concierge reccommendation. It was just as wonderful today. 1000% will go again. Salt crusted sea bass, octopus galacian...style, fried green beans...it was all delightfulMore

My husband and I love hood food and hood service. You will most certainly get that here. We felt spoiled and loved it. We’ve seen some reviews that say people feel like they were scammed. We’d like to shed some clarity on that. First, the...food here is easily the best we’ve had in our travels so far. We were blown away at the flavors and wine pairings. We will be going back before we leave Lisbon. The staff is top notch and treat you like royalty. You will be well taken care of. Now let’s dispel some of this “scam” stuff. When we go to a restaurant I expect a abut of up-selling. Especially in a higher class establishment. It’s what they do!! A charge for bread and cheese is normal unless you go to a Golden Coral or Olive Garden. But keep in mind, you get what you pay for. Next, they will offer you a before dinner cocktail of white Port wine mixed with soda water and a lemon and mint. It is delicious and perfect for before dinner. A wonderfully refreshing pallet cleanser to start your meal experience. But again, you will be charged for this. If you expect it to be free then you are just a fool. No high class restaurant we’ve been to doesn’t charge for such things. They are in the business of making money. Not giving it away. Ok, next…unless you’re a wine expert you should take advantage of recommendations from your server to choose the best wine to pair with your meal. I’m not a wine expert so I always need some help. Our server paired a wine that went perfectly with my tenderloin. The combination of the food and wine brought out an explosion of delicious flavors that my mouth is still salivating over just thinking about it. But keep in mind, if you ask for help pairing a wine you should expect to receive the most expensive option. Again, they are in the business of making money. Now on to the food…I had the tenderloin with a Port wine sauce and mushrooms over thinly sliced potatoes. I ate it all, which is not typical for me. We actually wanted to lick the plate. My husband got the baby lamb leg. It was much larger than we expected and it was cooked to perfection. Juicy, tender and rich in flavor. Whatever sauce they put on the meal was also delicious and my husband actually did clean the plate with a piece of bread. He probably would have licked the plate if we weren’t in such a nice place. For dessert I got the cinnamon pie. I’m a sucker for pairing wine with food so I asked for a recommendation of a dessert wine to pair. Our server recommended two Port wines. A 10-year and a 20-year. Knowing wine I assumed the 20-year was more expensive but I went with it anyways. So glad I did!! The pairing of the egg based cinnamon pie with the 20- year Port was to die for. The dessert brought the Carmel and butterscotch flavors of the Port and the Port gave the dessert a surprisingly maple flavor I was not expecting but thoroughly enjoyed. I highly recommend. My hubby got a meringue with eggnog and cinnamon. He does not drink so water was his beverage of choice. But I tried with with my Port and it changed the wines profile to enhance the butterscotch flavor and the eggnog burst to life. So good. I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it. Anyways…put this on your top list of restaurants to experience in Lisbon. We went to a higher rated restaurant and were extremely disappointed. But you won’t be here!!! PS. We found the prices to be reasonable, and we kind of cheap folks. But don’t forget, you get what you pay for.More

The food was good and not more than that. The goat was tender and the risotto was al dente - yet, there was no memorable flavor to them that would make my soul sing. Service very good. The restaurant seems to consist of two parts,...one of which is fine dining, and the other one looks and sounds like the souk in Morocco. I think it should be either or. Quite expensive by the local standards.More

Place was clean and well run. Service was good. However, food was average at best. Fish soup was not bad and was the best part of the meal. Grilled Octopus was prepared adequately, but all side dishes lacked any seasoning and flavor. Seafood Risotto was...again flavorless and plane, but at least not fishy. Of course, there was a separate charge for the bread, water, olives and cheeses - that is expected. In conclusion - was an ok place, mostly for tourists, with an ok food.More

Best restaurant in Lisbon!! I'm a San Francisco foodie snob, so when I say that the goat cheese appetizer was perhaps the best app I have ever had in my entire life, it will mean something. Plus, they have my most favorite fish entree: whole...branzino baked in salt. The fish is as expected (fantastic), but their presentation is a spectacle for the Instagrammers. And the service was great, and the ambiance was great, and the server was great, but I wouldn't gush over a restaurant unless everything else was on point. If you ignore everything else I've ever written, come here, get the whole branzino (sea bass) on salt, get the goat cheese app, and have one of the best meals of your life.More

We arrived a little early for our dinner reservation and were immediately greeted and sat in the lounge area for drinks while the restaurant was being prepared for service. The mature wait staff were very knowledgeable, helpful in selecting food and wine choices and very...attentive. The Clam appetizer was excellent as were the mains, the Portuguese Seafood Stew and Giant Prawns. The desserts were also excellent. Best dining experience in Lisbon.More
