Absolutely the WORST food and service imaginable. Italian restaurant in Lisbon. The two Italian wines my husband ordered were unavailable, so the wine guy brought an OPEN bottle of Portuguese wine and poured it for our guest to try. SO RUDE. Then they didn’t have...my husbands food order but told us 20 minutes after we ordered????? Arrived on time for 7:30 reservation and they asked for our table back at 9:00. No dessert, no coffee, just a big bill for terrible food. I don’t even understand the hype. TERRIBLE. PLEASE AVOID.More

Writing this while going on my 15th hour in the emergency room… the oysters/seafood here made both me and my boyfriend and I so extremely sick the night after. It has caused some sort of infection/virus that has made me vomit constantly, diarrhea, and high...fever. This restaurant needs to get its act together - as I was sitting in the hospital earlier today I saw others having the same issue. This is simply not okay, and this has completely ruined my entire weekend. Do better, this is disappointing and disgusting.More

Beautifully decorated and expertly curated, Rocco delivered in every aspect and then some. It's like being in a Wes Anderson film, with the Grand Budapest Hotel coming to mind. The interior is just stunning and one of a kind. The cocktails were delicious, the food...was unbelievable, and the staff was exceptional. These people excel in their craft and take pride in their restaurant and the brand they represent -- it's evident from the moment you walk in the door. I'm a firm believer in never dining at the same place twice when in a new city, but between grabbing drinks, breakfast, and dinner we went here five times during our short stay. Every single dish and cocktail we had was next level. If the burrata, oysters, and cod cake were the openers, the sea bass and clam risotto was the headliner. Absolute perfection. The notable mentions are Bruno, Pedro, Rafael, and Duarte -- each of them excellent in their own right. It was a 10/10 dining experience with these absolute professionals guiding us through our dining experience with ease, expertise, humor, and care. Thank you, gentlemen!More

I don't recommend this restaurant. While the ambiance, decor, and music are pleasant for drinks, the lack of a view is disappointing, especially with many beautiful riverside spots in Lisbon. The food is basic, nothing special, and quite expensive. The tables are too close, making...it uncomfortable. I'd suggest exploring other restaurants in Lisbon with better value, nicer settings, and a more beautiful experience.More

My friends and I came to Rocco for a late lunch on NYEs, we managed to get a booking the day before. The vibe of the place was great. You walk in to the most amazing bar. The whole experience was so much fun (other...than the guy next to us that felt he could take his shoes off and sit bare foot, but that’s not the restaurants fault! - perhaps these people could be reminded of manners though!). The staff were brilliant, very attentive. And the food was superb! We had a cheese wheel pasta meal served up, as well as the deconstructed tiramisu that was put together almost as a show for us - brilliant! I personally had the lobster linguine which was delicious. Service was quick, but not rushed and everyone was friendly. And to add to it, the toilets were also an experience! The whole place was beautiful.More

I had high expectations for Rocco due to its reputation for a fancy vibe and excellent service, but our experience was disappointing. Despite clearly stating our desire to taste a wine before buying, the waiter ignored us and opened a bottle we found unsatisfactory. We...were charged for it without consent. The staff served items without mentioning additional charges, inflating our bill. The robotic attitude of many staff members was unpleasant, and as people of color, we felt a suspicious racial undertone in their behavior. The manager's rude response and refusal to acknowledge staff mistakes left us extremely disappointed with our overall experience at Rocco.More

It is a beautiful restaurant staffed by the worst kind of people. The staff is clearly not friendly or accommodating. All they care about is asking you if you finished and are ready to take away your drink or plate whether you are done or...not.More

We actually wanted...to buy coffees and more drinks but were told No the table Was needed… this table should have been ours for 2 hours!!! Substandard “Brand standards” and customer service!
