We came to the Porter bistro on a trip to Lisbon on the day we should’ve been married. The food was absolutely fantastic and the service was amazing. Andre made our experience in the restaurant truly great and provided fantastic recommendations for some of the...best food we’ve had in Lisbon! I would definitely return here in the future and was fully satisfied by the whole experience. Thanks again Andre and team!More

The food was soo so good, through trip advice i chose Porter restaurant and I’m glad that I did the right choice. Me and my friends were satisfied with the service, food as well as the price. Christopher and Luis were super friendly and surprisingly...for Portuguese it’s was the best service I’ve ever had, although I live in Switzerland which is the place that hospitality was born. I wish to Porter team all the best and I suggest to TripAdvisor users to go to that restaurant and try Portuguese vegetable soup and the white wine Redoma.More

I visited this restaurant with my boyfriend on a 24 hour layover in Lisbon. Upon arriving at the restaurant we were greeted promptly and warmly by Christopher. The ambiance of the resultant is lovely with a beautiful bar and paintings. To start we had some...of the best Sushi I have ever had (although the food is primarily Mediterranean, there is a dedicated sushi chef). Following this we had the Bras Cod and Lomo with truffle mash, these were both exceptionally cooked and truly delicious. To finish we had the apple pie and passionfruit and chocolate dome which were again absolutely perfect. Christopher was amazing for the whole meal and is genuinely a lovely guy! With our meal we had cocktails prepared by Luis who was fantastic and even came to the table to create the best old fashioned I’ve ever had!! Thank you so much to both of you for making my night and even letting us give a personal thank you to the amazing chefs!More
